In the Dark: A Novel

We rated this book:


In The Dark is a thriller that doesn’t quit. It draws you in from the very beginning and makes the reader ask questions that won’t be answered until much later in the story. A girl is found in the basement of an old, demented man along with what seems to be her two-year-old son. How long has she been down there and why won’t she talk? The police chalk it up to PTSD but what is going on with this girl is much more severe than that. Five stars to In The Dark for keeping me engaged as the characters slowly show their true selves. The discovery of the girl also opens up another case in which a local reporter was claimed to be missing several years ago.

DI Adam Fawley heads the case and slowly puts together the pieces of the puzzle, all which leave the reader with a shocking realization at the end. The story about the reporter, Lindsay, is woven into the main storyline very well. In the beginning, the reader might wonder how the two cases are intertwined, but in the end, everything comes out into the open. A fantastic read for lovers of suspense and thriller novels.
