This is my first time reading the author. I really enjoyed Dead End, it's my sort of thriller, full of misdirection, unexpected twists, a balance of light and dark and compelling characters. I haven't read the other two books in the Kelly Porter series and after enjoyed this book so much I will definitely check them out. I really liked the way the suspense is built up in the book, gradually, layer by layer, sometimes barely noticeable. At first it seems the disappearances have nothing to do with the Earl's death but Kelly starts to unravel the threads between them. I like books that surprise me and books where plot developments come out of the blue. Dead End is a great example of this. The twists and suspense are thick and fast at the end of the novel with the last few chapters rattling along. All in all, Dead End is a find example of a good thriller.
