Publisher's Summary

It's hard to recognize the devil when his hand is on your shoulder. That's because a psychopath is just a person before he becomes a headline... Psychopaths have preferences for Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts coffee, denim or linen, Dickens or... well, you get the point.
Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen more than her share of psychopaths. She is ready to put all that behind her, building a new life in Tucson with a husband, friends, and some nice quiet work as a private investigator. Sure, she could still kill a man half her age, but she now gets her martial arts practice by teaching self-defense at a women's shelter. But sometimes it isn't that simple.
When her sister-in-law dies, Brigid take in her 17-year-old niece Gemma-Kate. There has always been something unsettling about Gemma-Kate, but family is family. Which is fine, until Gemma-Kate starts taking an unhealthy interest in dissecting the local wildlife. Meanwhile, Brigid agrees to help a local couple by investigating the death of their son - which also turns out not to be that simple. Her house isn't the sanctuary it used to be, and new dangers - including murder - seem to lurk everywhere. Brigid starts to wonder if there is anyone she can trust, or if the devil has simply moved closer to home.
Becky Masterman's Fear the Darkness is the masterful follow-up to the Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Rage Against the Dying.

Wanted to like it more

I was a little disappointed after enjoying book 1 so much. I found myself getting increasingly annoyed with the characters. Too much suspending my disbelief.... How everyone else noticed Brigid looking terrible and walking oddly - except for her own spouse? How no one cared about her driving while acting odd? Faces into airbags don't create concussions?
I love this character but don't make her so dumb!
Finally, the wonderfully narrated voice of Brigid which I enjoyed in the first book seemed to break in & out of a strange southern drawl in book 2. Where did that come from?
Please write book 3. I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first, but thought the reader was entertaining and kept me engaged even when the book was slow.
