Angels of Venice by T.R. Foster

Amazon.com Link for Angels of Venice

Angels of Venice by T.R. Foster is a combination police crime drama, mystery, thriller, and horror story. Set in the small impoverished town of Venice, a haunting past of serial murders has come back a generation later. Could they be the product of a childhood imagination or something beyond imagination? Chief of Police Eliza Hamilton has a past and a present with the murders in town as her life reconnects with a childhood friend.


T.R. Foster creates an interesting location in the town of Venice. The descriptions of the abandoned buildings and a former religious settlement added to the haunting creepiness of the story. In the beginning, the town of Venice could be any rural small-town location. Only as the story progresses does the troubled past of murder and mystery set this town apart.

I enjoyed the story and thought it was a good horror story, but there was no character that I really cared about. The chief of police could have been a strong female character, but her weakness for a battering ex-husband did not appeal to me. The mystery aspect was intricate and I felt like some of the “dots”  were not fully connected by the end.

I still enjoyed the story and recommend Angels of Venice for fans of a creepy good read.
