I recently read a story that I want to share with all my readers: The Depot by Carmen DeSousa. I had not read anything by Carmen before. This story immediately hooked me, making me an instant fan! Here’s a look:
As he investigates a supposed suicide by train, he learns secrets of a murder that took place eighty years ago may directly affect his case.
* Due to popular demand, The Depot is officially a prequel. The next chapter of Detective Mark Water’s life will be available soon in The Library. For now, enjoy this twelve-thousand-word short story by bestselling romantic-suspense author Carmen DeSousa that has just enough mystery, paranormal, and even a little romance to round things out. *
My 5-star review:
This story had my full attention from the dramatic opening right through to the last sentence. I loved the characters. Despite this being a short story, I felt connected and drawn to them. Carmen DeSousa’s writing feels effortless. She steps out of the way and allows her characters to tell their tale.
I was excited to learn Detective Mark Waters’ story will be continuing on. I’m looking forward to spending more time with him.
The Depot is available free through the end of June!
