Into the Black
Janey McCallister Mystery Book 1
by Beth Barany
Genre: SciFi Mystery Romance

In 2130, at Bijoux de L’Etoile, a high-end casino orbiting Earth, you can get anything you desire.

Newly-hired as an investigator, Janey McCallister wants to solve her first big case—the theft of a priceless gem.

When her case of theft escalates to murder and points to the seedy underbelly of world affairs, Janey has to rely on her new team and trust the mysterious insurance investigator, Orlando Valdez—before a killer escapes into the black.

Into The Black is perfect for fans of J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas books and Killjoys and CSI. It contains a slow-burn romance, enhanced humans, cool high-tech gadgets, a futuristic vision of the Earth, and a tough heroine with secrets.

Into the Black starts off with a bang and never lets up from beginning to end. We are introduced to a new character Janey McCallister. Janey is an investigator who works at a high-end casino, Bijoux de L’Etoile in space.

Janey took the job at the casino to help pay for her mother’s health care and at the moment her job is in danger. If she screws up one more time then she is out. Janey is trying her best to play it by the book and follow all the rules. The last thing she needs at the moment is to lose her job. So needless to say Janey is not getting along too well with her boss or her co-workers. Janey doesn’t know who to trust and who not to.

One of the guests at the hotel has a priceless gem stolen from his room. Janey is assigned to the case. Janey must not fail at finding this gem if she wants to keep her job. Before Janey can even step foot on the scene an insurance investigator, Orlando Valdez beats her to it. Janey has no idea who this guy is or if he is even who he says he is.

Into the Black drew me in from the first page and I fell in love with the story instantly. I loved the world that was created for Into the Black. The characters are just as amazing. When I read the summary and saw that it involved working and living on a space station I was in as it reminded me of TV shows like Killjoys, The Orville, Star Trek and, Vagrant Queen.

If you are into science fiction and or TV shows like the ones I mentioned above then you are going to love Into the Black. To get started on this SyFy adventure one-click your copy of Into the Black today!

Is he alive? Has he broken up with her without letting her in on the secret? Is he in trouble? Or maybe he is working on a case of his own that he can’t tell her about.
