Starting out with her ‘Detective Bernadette Noel’ series of mystery crime novels, Joy Kluver would begin her literary career with the book ‘Last Seen’ in 2021.

Broken Girls

Following on from the first, ‘Last Seen,’ released just a few months before in March, it would pave the way for the third book in 2022. Providing a stand-alone mystery, it can be read on its own, although there’s plenty for returning fans to enjoy here too.

Strangled and left dead in the undergrowth, a young woman has been murdered by someone once close to her. Now Detective Bernadette Noel must find the killer, and that is when she learns that the rings on the victim belonged to a missing au pair. Then another victim turns up dead, and Detective Bernadette Noel is in a race against the clock to track down the killer before it’s too late. Will she be able to find them in time, can she bring them justice once and for all, and just who killed the broken girls?

The mystery is held together by well-written characters who speak directly to the reader, as Bernadette really feels like an authentic character. Giving the story a sense of drive and purpose, Kluver creates a fully realistic and three-dimensional world for the reader to explore here.

Left for Dead

This time coming out through the Bookouture publishing label, this would initially arrive in 2022 on the 10th of January. Marking the third novel in the ongoing ‘Detective Bernadette Noel’ series of mystery books, it would carry on with another case to solve. Carrying on in a similar style to the previous two books, it has plenty of twists and turns of its own and can easily be read as a stand-alone. Once again, the book works well within the context of the mystery genre, and there’s so much to enjoy here every step of the way.

Left barely alive, Keira Howard remains unconscious in a hospital bed as DI Bernie Noel races to her bedside. There’s been a string of attacks in the area on young women, and the detective vows to catch the man responsible for these crimes. Then she hits an obstacle after her prime suspect dies under police watch, meaning someone out there wants the case to be kept quiet, as she’s taken off the investigation. Will she be able to persevere, though, and find the real culprit, can she stop them from killing again, and what will happen as another victim is left for dead?
