The Dark by V. M. Giambanco
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Following on from The Gift of Darkness and also starring Detective Alice Madison of the Seattle Homicide team, this new one needs the first to be read to fully appreciate it. It centres on the discovery of bones from a kidnapping 25 years earlier where the other two boys escaped. Five years after the event one of the kidnappers was found dead in a trapping pit. Originally there were four kidnappers. Now the murders mount up as does the tension in a dark, atmospheric tale. Those murdering the kidnappers were particularly scary, ruthless and menacing folk. With lots of forensics and psychology this continues to build Madison’s character ready for the next in the series.

If you like V. M. Giambanco you might also like to read books by Tess Gerritsen, Karin Slaughter and Kathy Reichs.

Synopsis

The Dark by V. M. Giambanco

Seattle Homicide Detective Alice Madison is bound to jailed murderer John Cameron and attorney Nathan Quinn by a debt that cannot be repaid, by a nightmare that changed their lives forever. When the remains of Quinn's younger brother - murdered when he was a boy - are discovered in a shallow grave, Madison vows to follow the trail of brutal deaths that leads to the truth. A sadistic killer stalks the investigation as Madison's own demons threaten her future career with the police and darkness closes in. How far is she prepared to go to save a life?
