Title: What Lies in the Dark
Author: CM Thompson
Narrator: Pippa Rathborne
One murder can make a town nervous. Two brings fear. Add three, four, and more, and watch neighbor turn on suspicious neighbor.
Fletcher and Bullrush are assigned to solving a series of murders in which the killer carves numbers into their hands. The murders affect everyone from the officers to the citizens of the town. It doesn’t take long before neighbor is turning against neighbor. Even the Officers’ issues come to light as they become desperate to put an end to the killer wreaking havoc on their town.
The hopping POV allowed the author to steadily feed us information about the killer and the town itself. We’re put into the minds of the victims, the killer, the police, and just about everyone else in the tone so that every chapter has some type of suspense. The ending came a bit too quickly for my liking, but it wrapped everything up quite well.
The narrator really brought the story to life.
