LoveReading View on Darkside

Darkside is her eagerly awaited second novel whilst her first is the critically acclaimed Blacklands, a TV Best Book Club read in 2010 and it was also the winner of the CWA Gold Dagger for best crime novel of 2010.  Truly terrifying and utterly gripping, Darkside is set in a small sleepy community where nothing much ever happens, until that is a body of an elderly woman is found murdered in her bed.  But why is the local bobby removed from the investigation and why is he being blamed for the murder?  Pushing the boundaries well beyond that of most other thriller writers this will grab you and not let you go. 

Darkside Synopsis

Shipcott in bleak mid-winter: a close knit community where no stranger goes unnoticed. So when an elderly woman is murdered in her bed, village policeman Jonas Holly is doubly shocked. How could someone have killed and left no trace? Jonas finds himself sidelined as the investigation is snatched away from him by an abrasive senior detective. Is his first murder investigation over before it's begun? But this isn't the end of it for Jonas, because someone in the village is taunting him, blaming him for the tragedy, and watching every move he makes...

Darkside Press Reviews

'Bauer follows last year's storming debut, Blacklands, with Darkside. I would press this one on anyone who loves Kate Atkinson, Bauer really is that good... Another cracking crime novel.' The Bookseller
