Given its real-life backdrop, this environmentally conscious mystery is both educational and intriguing, and Pearson?s search for his wife?s body is emotionally affecting.' ?Mystery Scene Magazine'A superbly crafted mystery from beginning to end, Black Sun Descending ? continue[s] to document Stephen Legault's total mastery of the genre ?
