Fear The Dark – Book Review #8

Fear the Dark is the 5th novel in the Darby McCormick series by Chris Mooney. You can find links below, to all my reviews for the previous books.

Fear The Dark

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Fear grips a town in Colorado as a murderer targets entire families in their own homes. As police and the FBI struggle to contain the situation, they bring in forensic investigator and serial killer expert Darby McCormick.

What she finds is a brutal and elusive predator who stays one step ahead of their investigation.

As Darby navigates the blood-ties and broken promises that divide the locals, she knows that all the while the killer is watching, waiting and circling his next target: her.

She must not only meet evil—and somehow survive—but also be prepared to face this small town’s dark heart …

My Thoughts

I was really pleased to be back with Darby and Coop. It’s been a while since I read the previous book, but it felt like I’d never been away.
I don’t know what it is about Darby, I just really like her. When she punched the awful sheriff I wanted to shout out, yes, go on, Darby!!!

I’ve got 2 more books in the series to read and I’m going to see if Chris Mooney has written any other books so I can add them to my TBR list.

    Yes definitely going to add this to my list. The small town element reminds me of All the Lovely Children that I read last year #readwithme

    This book sounds just my cup of tea! I do like it when I find a character that I really like and there are lots of books to read in the series.
