Description

Into the Dark is the new dark and gripping crime thriller from Fiona Cummins about revenge, greed, ambition and the true cost of friendship.

'Complex. Inventive. Twisting. Unsettling.' - Sarah Vaughan, bestselling author of Anatomy of a Scandal

THE PLACE: Seawings, a beautiful Art Deco home overlooking the sweep of the bay in Midtown-on-Sea.

THE CRIME: The gilded Holden family - Piper and Gray and their two teenage children, Riva and Artie - has vanished from the house without a trace.

THE DETECTIVE: DS Saul Anguish, brilliant but with a dark past, treads the narrow line between light and shade.

One late autumn morning, Piper’s best friend arrives at Seawings to discover an eerie scene – the kettle is still warm, all the family’s phones are charging on the worktop, the cars are in the garage. But the house is deserted.

In fifteen-year-old Riva Holden’s bedroom, scrawled across the mirror in blood, are three words:

Make
Them
Stop.

Such a wild adventure! Another one I highly recommend.

One morning, a lady arrives to her friends home for their usual morning jog, only to find the place deserted. The whole Holden family, Piper, Gray and the children Riva and Artie are no where to be seen but their belongings are all still here. On the mirror in a bedroom there is writing 'Make Them Stop'.

Detectives are called in and DS Saul Anguish, new to the area, is one of the detectives on the case. As the story goes along, a cast of supporting characters are introduced, all with unique backgrounds and we get to find out more about Saul's dark past too.

This book drew me in immediately, with the eerie mystery of the missing family and as it went along the author weaved a twisted and fascinating story full of surprises. It was wild in places and could see this one being made into a movie. Such an enjoyable novel.

Thanks so much to NetGalley and PanMacmillan for this gifted advance review copy.

Another fantastic five star read from one of my favourite authors. From the first page I was hooked and found this book impossible to put down. So Many twists and turns, shocks and surprises. I finally turned the last page at 3am. Yes this book is that good. I had to know the truth and boy it certainly was a revelation and definitely not what I was expecting. A clever book and so well written. The story flowed well and all the main characters were believable and well fleshed out. I really hope to hear more of Dr Marsh and DS Saul Anguish.
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC in return for giving an honest review.

At first I was a little lost with this book. The storyline kept stopping from before and after the event. However, stick with it. It soon begins to flow. The story of the missing family is very cleverly crafted.
The introduction of the detective Saul Anguish and Blue probably wasn’t need to add to the story. They could have been a book in themselves as they were both complex characters.
On the whole a real solid read.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to see an ARC

Wow! I loved this book from start to finish. I red it in one sitting. Not normally keen on police procedural type stuff, but this had an edge to it. A gripping plot with a really satisfying ending.
