The story continues with another strange death, threats and attacks, and Deborah is taken off of the case. She continues her investigation on her own time and realizes things go much deeper than she first imagined. The reader watches everyone that she contacts become silent due to threats involving their respective families, yet Deborah refuses to give up.
This is the second book that I read featuring this relentless reporter, and I found her equally captivating in both. She has her own tragic back story, but both novels focus on her ability to ferret out a good story. Her relationships with her friends, and of course Sam, help to soften a plot that is quite alarming. The author highlights the importance of technology in reporting today, and it is interesting comparing the methods used by reporters of current novels to those of reporters in novels written decades ago.
While the story gets a little bogged down in parts, perhaps due to the inclusion of a few too many characters, on the whole I found Dark Waters to be well written and entertaining read.
