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 captive...in 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)

Thrilling.

When Marissa hasn't heard from her daughter for a few days, she starts to worry. This isn't like Brooke at all!! When she still can't get through to her and hears from her best friend, who hasn't seen her either, she goes to the police. The police aren't in a rush to find Brooke, but Marissa pushes them because Brooke needs insulin and she doesn't have her back up with her. If she doesn't get it soon she will die!! It's a race against time for Brooke!

The plot of this was, once it got going, fast paced and thrilling. This is the first book in a series and as such, has a lot of world and character building to do, but it's done well enough here that I didn't mind it!! I enjoyed seeing Marissas back story and learning more about her. I enjoyed getting a peek into the bad guys thoughts too. Seeing Brooke going through what she was going through was tough but added extra tension to the story.

Character wise, they were all well written and developed. Marissa is a great character. She has had a tough time and is just trying to make a living. As any mother would, she does everything she can to find her daughter, but it's helped when she is approached by a wealthy lady to run a new concept she has. She wants to open a foundation that will help people look for missing people, they will also help the victims of things like this. Marissa accepts and so has extra power to help her daughter.

In all, this was a great read. I flew through it!! It's over 14hrs long but didn't feel like it. I am looking forward to the next one!!

The duel narration was perfect! Both narrators read this extremely well, they were easy to listen to and gave a great performance. Both had plenty of tones for the different characters and I enjoyed their narration.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

In the dark

The author has done her research of Seattle and the surrounding cities well and is able to capture t Seattle, it's traffic, and the underlying tone of the lesser known areas . The story line is very believable
