Book Review: What Lies in the Dark

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.

My Review

4/5 Stars

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.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
