A Dark Time by Dennis Bradford (A Review)

Storyline info (from the author):
A college student vanishes.  Her worried grandfather asks one of her favorite professors, Max Stephansson, to solve the mystery.  What Max discovers is tragic.  The suspense surrounding her disappearance unfolds to yield insight, but at the cost of danger and death.

My review:
Some really thought-provoking issues wrapped up in an interesting plot. Unfortunatly, I found it hard to imagine Max Stephansson as a real person since his actions did not always seem consistant with how he was described. The descriptive passages were quite long and sometimes got in the way of the progress of the story, as did the philosophical debates. And there were a few American words that I had to work hard to understand.
Having said that, I can see some potential in Dennis Bradford's work, particularly in the way the suspence built up. I think that with the help of a copy editor something could really be made of this book. This author could be one to look out for in the future.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
