Valley of the Lost, the second mystery in the Constable Molly Smith series, is a disappointing read. Set in beautiful British Columbia, very little of the unique culture or character of the place is found. The plot is interesting, with a couple of good twists, but the uneven writing gets in the way. Reading like a first draft, the story is cluttered with details that add little to character development or plot and detracts from the story. At times, supporting characters seemed more like the hero/heroine than Molly Smith. With all the fantastic books in the mystery genre, this one is mediocre.
