Within Plain Sight by Bruce Robert Coffin is a highly recommended police procedural and the fourth book in the series.

Detective Sergeant John Byron and his team are called to the scene of a horrific crime in Portland, Maine. The body of a young woman has been found in an abandoned Portland lumber yard, posed, sitting up. Beyond not knowing who is responsible for her murder, the biggest question is where is her head? The crime may have ties to murders committed in Boston by a serial killer labeled the Horseman, so Byron needs to figure out if this is the case, if it is a copycat murder, or just a gruesome coincidence.

As they start investigating the case, it becomes clear that there are some well-known local people who knew the victim and may have some connection to the case. As they investigate the case there are more and more people and lines of questioning that need to be covered. It is not making their jobs easier that some details are being prematurely leaked to the press.

This is a well-written, intricately plotted and detailed police procedural that follows the investigation step by step as more information is dug up and new lines of questioning need to be pursued. There are also problems with colleagues and departmental and relationship problems going on during the investigation. This is my first Detective Sergeant Byron novel but I had no problem keeping track of the numerous characters and following the plot. The characters are developed and given depth while the investigation Within Plain Sight is a perfect choice for procedural fans who like intricate, detailed investigations with the twists and turns along the way.

Another great addition to this series. Detective John Byron is back & he’s got a full plate. First up is a new case. The body of a young woman has been found in an abandoned yard &…um…let’s just say obtaining an ID will be tricky.

The investigation is complicated by a few factors. Usually police hope to dig up even one good suspect. John & his crew have the opposite problem. They’ve got a whole herd of viable candidates, some of whom are part of a well known & affluent family with a lot of political pull in the Portland area.

Naturally this makes department brass a little nervous, including the freshly appointed chief. When details start leaking to the press, the results are disastrous. A new boss, office politics, a crazed father & changes in his personal life are just some of the headaches John is dealing with. And that’s before you take into account the weasel infestation. No, not the furry 4 legged variety. These varmints walk upright. One is a journalist who lives for lurid headlines. The others are a couple of John’s colleagues who would like nothing better than to see him fail.

Due to the wealth of suspects John & his crew have to dig deep, uncovering family secrets & lies in the process. As pieces slide into place, you might find yourself changing your mind more than once as the investigation progresses. I did. The procedural aspect is done very well & you get a real sense of the grunt work involved.

It’s a proper head scratcher. The plot is intricate with plenty of twists to keep you guessing. I really enjoyed the returning cast of characters. They have distinct personalities & the relationships between them are the heart of the story. Tension starts to build & by the time you hit the 3/4 mark, you’ll resent having to put it down.

I think one of the most remarkable things about these books is how consistently well written they are. As with all series, you might enjoy some story lines more than others but it’s the core characters that keep you coming back. I gradually let go of some long running series I’ve read for years as it started to feel like they were going down roads already travelled. So I’m thrilled to come across a new one to follow. Bring on book #5! ( )
