Read The Weight of Night (Glacier Mystery #3) Online Free - On most days, the wilderness gave me peace. But not tonight.
In a land sculpted by glaciers, the forest is on fire. Thick smoke chokes the mountain air and casts an apocalyptic glow over the imposing peaks and vistas of Montana’s Glacier National Park. When firefighters are called in to dig firebreaks near the small town bordering the park, a crew member is shocked to unearth a shallow grave containing human remains.
Park Police Officer Monty Harris is summoned to the site to conduct an excavation. But with an incendiary monster threatening to consume the town, Monty seeks help from Gretchen Larson, the county’s lead crime scene investigator.
While the two work frantically to determine the true identity of the victim, a teenager suddenly disappears from one of the campgrounds in Glacier. Could the cases somehow be connected? As chances for recovery of the missing boy grow slimmer and the FBI finds only dead ends, Gretchen and Monty desperately race to fit all the pieces together while battling time, the elements, and their own unresolved inner conflicts.

I rounded this book up to 4 stars, but I am actually giving it 3.5. I am a fan of Christine Carbo, and her first book, The Wild Inside, is my favorite of the three that she has written. I thought this book was a bit too long, and might have benefitted from some editing, especially at the end.

Christine Carbo has quickly become a must read author for me. I loved her first two books, and this one was even better! She writes wonderful characters, engrossing storylines, and stunning settings.

In this one, the Glac...

This is my first book by this author.
The Weight of Night is also book #3 in the Glacier series. It has a good suspense thread into the storyline with a couple of interesting subplots too. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I knew the characters from prior books.
The story develops in Montana...

I love the way Carbo does "place" in this series. This time she used wild fire as "the weather element."

I've read all three of Carbo's novels set in Glacier National Park and each one has been better than the last.
The Weight of Night combines a gripping plot, compelling characters, and beautiful, descriptive prose.
Both Monty Harris, a Park Police officer, and Gretchen Larson, crime scene investiga...
