When a doctor reaches out to try to help an abused woman, the woman ends up dead and the doctor severely injured. Suspicion surrounds the doctor when a bag of Oxy is found in her pocket. Detectives Maggie Savage and Michael McCabe know the killers name, but soon learn that is leading them nowhere, and the murdered woman’s young sister is in grave danger.
Darkness First does an amazing job of drawing the reader deep into the story. With its shifting locations and characters, the story is progresses very meticulously. There is the perfect balance of narration and dialog, and the characters are well-developed and interesting. This mystery/police procedural was an all-around great read, and I highly recommend it for fans of this genre.
I received a review copy of this book from Witness Impulse in return for an honest and fair review.
