I can only give it a 4* because of all the difficult triggers (spousal abuse, child murder), so I couldn't finish. The writing is good and the characters are only too believable. The publisher's blurb is pretty good except for the bit about the marriage.
I requested and received a free ebook copy from St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley. ( )

I received an advance copy of this book. Thank you.
This was a good book, but depressing. Hazel is an aspiring writer from the northern wilds of Wisconsin. She and her husband move Black Harbor for her husbands work. He works in an Ecological field, yet you never learn more about that. You do learn a lot about him; he lives, breathes and thinks hunting, guns and booze. He hangs with deadbeat neighbors, chugging beer. Naturally Hazel realizes she's not in love with him anymore, and realizes she's living a dead end life with no one close to her. She takes a job as a night shift transcriber for the Black Harbor Police. If her life wasn't depressing before, now it really is as she transcribes nightly crime scene after crime scene; add to that, now she works at night alone in some dingy basement. She spends a lot of time on a bridge that is a mecca for suicide jumpers. She transcribes a scene for Nik Kole and soon is wrapped into that crime, and him. This book keeps you guessing to the end, but it is depressing. ( )

This suspense thriller takes place just as 26-year-old Hazel Greenlee is beginning a job as the night shift transcriber for the police department in eerie, crime-ridden Black Harbor, Wisconsin. She has been with her husband Tommy since they were 16, but it isn’t a happy marriage. Tommy is all about guns and hunting and drinking, and Hazel doesn’t like any of that - she aspires to be a writer. But Tommy is all she has ever known. Even sex with Tommy is unsatisfactory - not only on a routine schedule, and devoid of desire, but actually painful for Hazel. Too often, she goes running up to Forge Bridge, a popular site for suicide jumpers, and thinks about what it would be like.

At work she quickly gets to know people she enjoys and admires much more, including the handsome and charismatic detective Nikolai (Nic) Kole. Ironically, Nic is now investigating a case that involves her less-than-savory neighbors in a shared duplex. Nic becomes like an addiction for Hazel. But before long, she suspects Nic of murder.

Evaluation: This is a dark book in an unpleasant setting with unpleasant, albeit not caricatured, characters. In the end, I’m not sure I liked any of them, which generally affects my enjoyment of a book. But there is a good build-up of tension in the story and number of twists. I’m not sure I understood why it ended the way it did however. ( )

A fairly good potboiler, but too much gratuitous violence against women made it less enjoyable than it would have been otherwise. ( )

Review of Uncorrected Digital Galley

Crime in Black Harbor, Wisconsin keeps the police busy; their reports keep transcriber Hazel Greenlee listening as they detail the gruesome crime scenes. The investigation into a suspicious drug death, linked to a notorious dealer, Candy Man, draws Hazel, who aspires to become a writer, into the investigation. She soon finds herself enthralled with the lead detective, Nikolai Kole, but, in order to protect her ability to be involved in the case, she keeps an important secret from him.

Just how far will Hazel go to get the story?

Complex, well-defined characters populate this story of commitment and integrity. Hazel is disappointed in her marriage; her husband, Tommy, is thoughtlessly cruel, and, for Hazel, their marriage has become a game of survival.

For two years, Hazel and Tommy have called a duplex in Black Harbor home. Tommy is an aquatic ecologist, hired by the city because the lake is inexorably encroaching on the shoreline. Job-searching Hazel, who types one hundred eleven words per minute with ninety-eight percent accuracy, is well-suited for the police transcriber position that she interviews for and accepts.

Anchored by a strong sense of place [and the Forge Bridge], the unfolding story is, despite the ongoing police investigation into opioid-related deaths, less mystery and more of a woman’s introspective scrutiny to reveal the truth about her marriage and herself.

Plot twists and unforeseen revelations keep the tension building; both the investigation into the drug deaths and the denouement yield some unexpected surprises. However, the elegiac undercurrent running throughout the captivating story gives the narrative a pensive, somber tone. Readers are likely to find it difficult to put this book aside before turning the final page.

Highly recommended.
