Publisher's Summary

Emily McPhee is in the clutches of a monster....
Despite the protection of her boyfriend, Seth Connors, and his colleagues at the Orange Police Department, Emily is imprisoned in a basement by her psychopathic stalker, Jimmy Lasko. His bizarre behavior adds to her terror, and a video link forces Seth to witness her captivity, leaving him feeling helpless as he, the OPD, and the FBI search for her.
Freedom isn't free, and safety is just an illusion....
Though Emily escapes the basement, the threat is far from eliminated. In fact things she learned while being held by Lasko lead her to believe he isn't working alone. Lasko is still out there, determined to get her back and crazier than ever. If he does have a partner, Emily has no idea where the threat might lie or who she can trust.
It's impossible to live a normal life when family ties become tangled. Emily is deeply hurt when Seth is reminded that their relationship might endanger her further, and he pulls away again. She's even more frustrated when her globe-trotting mother returns and is charming to everybody...except her own daughter.
When Emily meets Seth's family, she loves his mom and little sister, isn't sure what to make of his flirtatious brother - who is also a cop - and finds herself very uneasy around his father, who is a powerful attorney.
Sometimes things seem very clear...until you look more closely.

J. L. Drake does it again!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Definitely. I spend a lot of time on the road, so I listen to a lot of audio books. J. L. Drake is one of my top five favorite authors.

What did you like best about this story?

The underlying love story. Always the love story.

How could the performance have been better?

Better narration. Tia Sorenson is too monotone.

Could you see Darkness Follows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No. Because of time constraints, too many of the necessary parts of the story would need to be excluded.
