This novel is intense, dark, and suspenseful. Keep your lights on and your doors locked.
A Cry in the Dark will keep you on your toes as a serial killer turns his focus on FBI special agent Violet Rainwater, a violent crimes forensic psychologist, while she’s investigating the horrific disappearance and deaths of women in Nigh Holler.
Detective John Orlando is the only person she can truly trust in these back hills of Kentucky, filled with thick forests, caves, and hidden passages. With her secret past nipping at her heels and John’s wife’s mysterious disappearance, they must forgo their personal quests to stop a devious killer before he strikes again.
Could they’d both find answers and resolve their issues in this remote setting among an unwelcoming, small population?
