A tense exploration of manipulation and betrayal ... A solid psychological thriller with carefully developed characters and disturbing, cleverly masked revelations that will appeal to fans of Tana French and Sophie Hannah’s procedurals.
[Hunter] gradually unwind[s] a case that is much more complicated that it initially appears ... This slow-burning procedural builds with tension as the narrative moves through several cunning twists, offering fans a pleasing follow-up.
Horrifying in some places, darkly humorous in others, it is a novel that you will remember for a long time ... In the Dark has everything --- from mystery, violence and passion to greed, lust and envy. Hunter’s pacing is perfect, and I actually find myself missing the characters. That’s an increasingly rare commodity these days that we as readers should treasure and hold near and dear. Don’t miss this fine work that reminds us of why we read.
