A girl held captive her entire life
After a shocking discovery, the police must unravel a mystery that horrifies the nation.
A detective condemned as a criminal
Violently abducted while searching for a missing woman, D.S. Abigail Boone suffered retrograde amnesia – remembering nothing of her previous life. Defying the law to hunt those responsible, she now languishes behind bars.
A monster hiding in the shadows
In desperation, police turn to Boone – who fears a connection to the disappearance of a child three decades earlier…and a mysterious underworld figure whose name is spoken only in whispers.
Freed from prison, what will Boone sacrifice – and who must she become – to uncover the terrifying truth?
This was such a fantastic read – immediately immersive and a genuine page turner – Abigail Boone as a character is just utterly engaging with her own peculiar sense of justice and an ironic outlook on life.
After the first in this series I was already hooked – After Dark was, if anything, even better, with an emotionally resonant central story, a mystery element that twists and turns in very human and thought provoking ways, it is exquisitely crafted to keep you in that world from first page to last.
The character relationships are cleverly intertwined and it is an unpredictable, edgy read mostly down to Abigail who never quite does what you think she’ll do.
Overall this was brilliant. I am anticipating the next with much glee. Dark and intelligent just as I like them.
