Rod Reynolds: Black Reed Bay

Today I’m delighted to be sharing my review of Black Reed Bay as part of the blog tour. It’s written with thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on the tour and with apologies for posting late.


Don’t trust ANYONE…

When a young woman makes a distressing middle-of-the-night call to 911, apparently running for her life in a quiet, exclusive beachside neighbourhood, miles from her home, everything suggests a domestic incident.

Except no one has seen her since, and something doesn’t sit right with the officers at Hampstead County PD. With multiple suspects and witnesses throwing up startling inconsistencies, and interference from the top threatening the integrity of the investigation, lead detective Casey Wray is thrust into an increasingly puzzling case that looks like it’s going to have only one ending…

And then the first body appears…

For fans of Susie Steiner, Peter Swanson, M J Arlidge, James Lee Burke and Tana French.


I love Rod Reynolds’ writing. It is so vivid that I could see Black Reed Bay playing out in front of me as if it was a film, so I was totally sucked in to what was happening and invested in every move. 

I’m pleased that the blurb states that Black Reed Bay is the beginning of a series as I really want to see more of Casey Wray. She’s intelligent and feisty but she still has a lot to learn and I want to go on that journey with her. I loved her relationship with Dave and his family and I look forward to learning more about the rest of the team as the series continues. 

The investigation into Tina Grace with which Casey was involved really interested me and I was keen to find out what had happened to her and if she was still alive. We are thrown a lot of clues and I enjoyed trying to work out which clues to follow to put the puzzle together.

Black Reed Bay is available from Amazon.
