Review: All the Colors of Night by Jayne Ann Krentz
North Chastain possesses a paranormal talent that gives him the ability to track down the most dangerous psychic criminals. When his father suddenly falls into a coma, North is convinced it was caused by a deadly artifact traced back to the days of a secret government laboratory known only as the Bluestone Project. North knows his only hope of saving his father is to find the artifact. He is good when it comes to tracking down killers but to locate the relic, he's going to need help from a psychic who knows the shadowy world of obsessive collectors, deceptive dealers, and ruthless raiders…
With her reputation in ruins after a false accusation, antique expert Sierra Raines is looking for a fresh start. She turns to the murky backwaters of the paranormal artifacts trade, finding and transporting valuable objects with a psychic provenance. When North Chastain approaches her for help, Sierra takes him on as a client, though not without reservations. North represents the mysterious Foundation, the secretive organization established to police the underworld populated by psychic criminals and those, like Sierra, who make a living in the shadows of that world.
North and Sierra soon find themselves at the scene of The Incident that occurred decades ago in Fogg Lake. The town and its residents were forever changed by the disaster in the nearby Bluestone Project labs. The pair unearth shocking truths about what happened that fateful night, but they are playing with fire—someone in town knows what they’ve discovered and will do anything to make sure the secrets stay buried.
I was really looking forward to this one. I read and enjoyed the first book in the series, The Vanishing and new this one was going to be just as good. Guess what, I was right! There is something about Jayne Ann Krentz's writing that I just love. Her books are always easy to get into and I always seem to enjoy them. Always a plus.
Right from the beginning, you get a feel of the story. I knew right away that Sierra and North were going to be fun characters and that I'd like them. Both have things going on in their lives that seem to make things difficult for them. Sometimes you just need that special person that can help you.
This is a busy story but not confusing. You can easily keep up with what's going on. As the story goes on layer and layer of the mysteries within are solved, all but the main one that runs throughout the series.
I like how both North and Sierra work out their personal issues while working together to help North's father. I liked how the two families came together. I also enjoyed visiting with characters from The Vanishing.
This is a wonderful mystery with so many good twists and turns. It also has enough romance in it that both romance and mystery readers would enjoy it. I will mention that like most of her books there is a slight paranormal feel to it. I believe you'll really enjoy this one. Make sure to read the books in order because it will read better. Any of you read her?
