A Burning in the Darkness by A P Mcgrath (Book Review #258)

A burning in the Darkness is a crime thriller, love story about Father Michael Kieh.  His job is to listen to people’s confessions as a full-time faith representative. One day, as he is conducting his work he listens to the confessions of a murderer. When a murder happens at the airport, he recognizes one of the victims and that is when he finds himself in a twisted tale of wrongful conviction. There is a young witness that can prove Kieh’s innocence and there are painful memories of the past that resurface, creating some epic tale of events which follow through. The murder mystery also carries a hint of romance which was pleasantly added to the plot. Kieh has to face the past, his actions and try to overcome everything that gets thrown in his path in order to create a better future.

The story is very intriguing and entails some heartfelt memories from childhood for the lead character. Michael is very easy to bond with and his predicament creates a situation where you can easily relate to his suffering.

The literature was in good shape however, there were some problems with editing, and sentence structure noticed within the content. The story had a nice flow and pace to it which added more suspense to the reader.

Many books claim to be a crime thriller however, they only succeed in fulfilling the crime part of the story. There is normally no thrilling aspect to it. This book is not one of them. The story is truly a thriller to read and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys this aspect, in a book.
