That Darkness by Lisa Black
Thank you to Netgalley for copy of this Arc in exchange for a fair review.
So Maggie is a forensic investigator for the Cleveland Police Department, and she has seen a lot of bodies, but this young girl who was never reported missing sparks Maggie to leave no stone uncovered.
Jack is a killer, there really is only problem with that he is also a detective with the Cleveland Police Department. He is also on the hunt for the killer of the young, but for very different reasons and his uneasy alliance with Maggie may just be the end of home.
I feel like this is almost too spoilerish for me, but if you look up the book you can actually read all of that information in the synopsis so...I guess I didn't spoil anything. I like police procedurals especially if they are done right, so I guess in essence sometimes I love them sometimes I don't.
I am going to lean with I don't love this, but I did like it. I thought it was solid and definitely a nice twist at the end. I also really liked that it was different, I mean it is a fine line to walk, what do you do when the bad guy isn't necessarily the bad guy. I like the moral quandary, I think with a little more character building and some more chemistry between Renner and Gardiner these books can be fantastic. I will probably check out book 2 to see where this is going.
