The Gift of Darkness Synopsis

Twenty-five years ago in the woods near the Hoh River in Seattle, three boys were kidnapped. One did not come home. A quarter of a decade later, a family of four is found brutally murdered, the words thirteen days scratched near their lifeless bodies. Homicide Detective Alice Madison ran away from home as a child, one breath away from committing an unforgivable act; as an adult, she found her peace chasing the very worst humanity has to offer. Madison believes these murders are linked. And she has thirteen days to prove it. To stop a psychopath, Madison must go back into the woods and confront the unsolved mystery of the Hoh River Boys. She must forget her training and follow her instincts to the terrifying end as enemies become allies and, in the silent forest, time is running out to save another life.

The Good Book Guide Review

As publisher of Stieg Larsson and a host of other bestselling names, the imprimatur of Quercus is usually a guarantee of quality in the crime thriller stakes. As it is with V M Giambanco’s The Gift of Darkness, in which homicide detective Alice Madison is obliged to deal with the dark legacy of her past. As a child she ran away from home before committing an act that would have changed her entire life, and has found a sort of accommodation by chasing monsters. But the worst, for her, is yet to come.
