My #Review of #IntoTheDark by @FionaAnnCummins published by @panmacmillan
The Place: Seawings, a beautiful Art Deco home overlooking the sweep of the bay in Midtown-on-Sea.
The Crime: The gilded Holden family – Piper and Gray and their two teenage children, Riva and Artie – has vanished from the house without a trace.
The Detective: DS Saul Anguish, brilliant but with a dark past, treads the narrow line between light and shade.
One late autumn morning, Piper’s best friend arrives at Seawings to discover an eerie scene – the kettle is still warm, all the family’s phones are charging on the worktop, the cars are in the garage. But the house is deserted.
In fifteen-year-old Riva Holden’s bedroom, scrawled across the mirror in blood, are three words:
Make Them Stop.
What happens next?
This was my first read of anything by Fiona Cummins, but it was not to disappoint!
I was so totally hooked from the first page that I could not put Into The Dark down!
The opening chapter is excellent and totally gripped me. I loved the characters and the descriptions of the fabulous Seawings and the surrounding area were really really well written. The story is really intruiging and the chapters build and build.
Fiona Cummins knows how to take a reader thru suspense and twists and there are many twists in Into The dark, I certainly did NOT expect that ending!
A very well written and fabulous thriller with short sharp chapters and a great ending!
