DARK HARBOR - DAVID HOSP

Police Officer Paul Stone was only 22 years old.  He had just graduated from the Police Academy.  His assignment was to spend the afternoons on foot patrols along the piers of the edge of South Boston.  This was an assignment that was not well liked.  There was nothing much happening on weekends.  The Boston World Trade Center was deserted. 

Officer Stone walked halfway across the abandoned Northern Avenue Bridge at 7:00 P.M.  It was high tide.  He noticed what looked like a clump of something - a dark mass stuck in the pilings.  After checking more intensely, he noticed a metal object in the center of the clump.  He could now see the object was a watch.  He soon realized the watch was still attached to something - a hand!  He reached out to grab hold of the hand.  He realized he should not have done this but it was just a reflex action.

After composing himself, he called the dispatch to report his discovery of a body.  The dispatcher's name was Kate.  Kate's first question was "Is it him".  Stone replied "I don't know - red choker, gold cross - I'd say it is probably him". 

This body discovered was that of Natalie Caldwell.  She appeared to be the seventh victim of Little Jack who was the Jack the Ripper style murderer terrorizing Boston.  Natalie Caldwell is the former lover of Scott Finn who works for one of the city's most elite law firms. 

Police Detective Linda Flaherty isn't so sure this is the work of Little Jack.  She is looking more toward Finn as a person of interest.

Finn inherits an assignment that could really make a name for him, which involves a terrorist train bombing.  However, he soon finds out that he is the main suspect in Natalie's investigation. There is only one thing for him to do.  He must prove he did not murder Natalie and the way to do this was to dwell into the secrets of her life. 

Dark Harbor is David Hasp's debut novel and
WHAT A NOVEL it is!  This book is a thriller filled with many twists and turns that will make it impossible for the reader to figure out who killed Natalie.  With the subplots, David Hosp takes the reader on an exciting journey that they will not forget.  You will not have a chance to get bored reading this one.  David Hosp is a talented writer who will be on the bestseller list soon.  Be sure to add this one to your reading list.  It is highly recommended.
