Publisher's Summary

Marissa Rooney stands in her daughter's empty dorm room, a half-used vial of insulin clutched in her trembling hand. Brooke has been missing for days. Her roommate hasn't seen her since that night in the bar. And if Marissa has Brooke's insulin, it means that Brooke does not.
But Marissa isn't alone in her terror. A phantom from her past is lurking in the shadows, waiting in the night, and holding her family the dark.

"An edge-of-your-seat suspense novel. It scared the hell out of me. Read it with the lights on!" (Robert Dugoni, Amazon number one and New York Times best-selling author of My Sister's Grave)

This book put me on the edge of my seat, it is really that good! This is a suspenseful and believable story with likable characters.
There are other reviews and a synopsis to fill in the storyline so I won't do that.
What I will say is that although the kidnapper/killer is revealed pretty early on in the book it the it's not the finding out who it is but how and when he will be caught and by who.
I really really enjoyed this author's writing style. You can feel the mother's angst over her missing daughter and the lead detective 's frustration and anxiety while trying to find her. The detective has a story woven through of his own. The kidnapper's life is slowly revealed. His struggle to get from the wrong side of the tracks to his acceptance into high society and what he's had to do to get there (and it ain't pretty).
The narrating duo of Lisa Stathoplos and Corey Gagne do an outstanding job narrating.
This is book one in the Holt Foundation series. The next book on my reading list is book two.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Extreme suspense!

In the Dark is the first novel in The Holt Foundation Stories series. This is a must listen audio book for those who like suspense mystery/thrillers. The publisher's summary gives far too little information, but prior reviews fill in the blanks. The Holt Foundation was started by a woman dying of lung cancer. Marissa Rooney's older college age daughter is missing when she is hired as an investigator for the Holt Foundation. Marissa is the protagonist. The antagonist is as evil as one can imagine. Narration is superb.
