Here is what the QBD crew thought…
The Woman In Darkness is a taut and gripping tale of two women and a series of murders that links them together through time.
Rory Moore, a forensic reconstructionist, investigates cold case homicides by shedding light on details others have overlooked. In the midst of clearing out her father’s old office, she finds a cryptic file that plunges her into a 40-year-old murder mystery.
Flash to 1979 and we meet Angela Mitchell, a woman who disappeared in suspicious circumstances, after unmasking The Thief, a murderer suspected of killing 5 women.
Now The Thief is about to be paroled, and Rory is drawn further into Angela’s story. Drawing connections between the past and the present she discovers dark truths about Angela, her own father and the criminal nicknamed The Thief.
I love Charlie Donlea’s writing style throughout this book. The story developed beautifully, and while you find out who the killer is early on, it’s the continual slow burn to the conclusion with a few added twists that makes you sit on the edge of your seat until the very end.
If you’re looking for the perfect stand-alone thriller to bundle under the covers with this autumn, this is the book for you!
