Come Twilight (Long Beach Homicide) by Tyler Dilts

Setting: Long Beach, California
Genre: Mystery
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Release Date: August 23, 2016

Detective Danny Beckett is finally seeing things go right. He and his partner, Detective Jennifer Tanaka, have successfully closed cases handed to them. He's also finding himself head over heels with his girlfriend, Julia. It's simply too good to be true. Danny's latest investigation isn't as cut and dry as one would hope. The suicide he and Jennifer investigate isn't a suicide at all.

Shortly after questioning the victim's daughter, Danny learns someone planted a bomb and blew his car up. He's pushed to the sidelines until the Long Beach Police Department can solve the suicide case and figure out who is after Danny and why.

This is my introduction to Danny, so I did feel as though I was jumping in a bit. His backstory definitely takes shape over the previous five novels, so I have some catching up.

Given that, I still found myself engrossed. I really liked the characters and the setting. The mystery kept me guessing.

Writing in Come Twilight (Long Beach Homicide) is crisp and flows smoothly from one scene to the next. I can see this being very popular with fans of Robert Dugoni. It's a great mix of characters you want to get to know and a mystery that keeps you on your toes.
