Sintesi dell'editore

Award-winning author Suzanne Chazin returns with a stirring novel of deadly misdeeds and heartbreaking choices in a seasoned homicide cop's hometown. A split-second decision thrusts Detective Jimmy Vega into the epicenter of a disturbing case when a body is found near a gathering place for immigrants in upscale Lake Holly, New York. The cold-bloodedness of the crime and the innocence of the victim torment Vega. But so does the feeling that he's to blame. Could the ravings of a delusional vagrant hold the key to the killing? And if so, why can't the police locate him? In a community gripped by fear of deportation, Vega needs the help of his girlfriend, activist Adele Figueroa, to gain people's trust. But Adele is acting strangely, consumed by a secret that threatens to tear them apart. When the case takes a personal turn, both Vega and Adele discover that Lake Holly's tranquil facade hides a terror of monstrous proportions, poised and ready to strike again. To confront the killer and save their relationship, Vega and Adele must forge a new level of trust - in each other and in their most deeply held beliefs - to expose an evil that threatens to eclipse anything they'd previously imagined.

Written with equal parts passion and suspense, A Blossom of Bright Light takes listeners on a journey of stunning revelations to uncover a small town's most sinister secrets - and brightest hopes for the future. Mystery, sacrifice, and unremitting love converge in this gripping work by a master storyteller.

Pretty good listen with only a few disappointments

this was the second Suzanne Chazin book in the Jimmy Vega series I have listened to and really enjoyed the story. my only disappointments were the actor that read the book, I thoroughly enjoyed the actor who read the first book in the series, I felt he gave Jimmy more heart and passion. the other disappointment was the lack of acknowledgement to the previous book with regards to Jimmy's daughter. I feel it would have added depth to their relationship as the story unfolded. other than that I really liked the book.

Not sure about this one

It was ok, but I was a bit let down because I enjoyed A Land of Careful Shadows so much. This author can evoke a location very well indeed, and I was very much engaged in the peripheral stories of the immigrant community. But, unfortunately I found myself not liking most of the characters this time around. Jimmy is being stupid as far as his relationship is concerned, and a decision he more or less forced Adele into at the start just seemed out of character. Joy seems even more selfish and immature. I will continue with the series since I bought them all, but I sincerely hope Joy fades into the background in the next one. I think part of the problem was that this is a different narrator, and I did not like him nearly as well as the first. He lapses into a weird sing-song cadence sometimes, and the way Joy was voiced made me want to slap her. I hope the next one is better.
