[Synopsis]

A woman and child are found locked in a basement room, barely alive…

No one knows who they are – the woman can’t speak, and there are no missing persons reports that match their profile. And the elderly man who owns the house claims he has never seen them before.

The inhabitants of the quiet Oxford street are in shock – how could this happen right under their noses? But DI Adam Fawley knows that nothing is impossible.

And that no one is as innocent as they seem…

[My Review]

I loved the first in this series, Close To Home, so had high hopes for the second, In The Dark – and it certainly didn’t let me down!

What started out as a powerful and well-written series has only been reinforced with In The Dark – this novel builds on some great characters and offers up an exciting, complex-but-not-too-complex plot. It’s bloody brilliant!

Firstly, as I mentioned, the characters are just great. I enjoyed reading more about Fawley, Quinn, Somer – everyone! There are some flawed characters, including less-than-perfect police officers, so they felt like real people. I really felt for Adam Fawley at times, and am glad we get to see a good portion of the book through his own eyes.

The plot completely sucked me in and kept me intrigued at just the right pace. There’s mystery, character-building, and tension in spades, and some truly messed up occurences!

With plenty of twists peppered into a plot that slowly reveals more and more, this is addictive reading and bound to be high on the list for any seasoned (or new) crime fan. Give it a go (but if you haven’t read Close To Home, I say start there and relish having not one but two novels in this series to read!)

[Rating: 5/5]

Many thanks to Viking for providing a copy of this novel on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review.
