Into The Dark by Fiona Cummins is her latest gripping crime novel where avarice, payback, and a desire for wealth and power, test the bonds of true friendship.
Golden couple, Piper and Gray and their teenage children, Riva and Artie, live a privileged life in their beautiful Art Deco home named Seawings, which overlooks the picturesque expanse of the bay in Midtown-on-Sea.
Then, one morning in late autumn, Piper’s longtime friend, Julianne, arrives at Seawings for their weekly run. She discovers the radio playing, the kettle still warm, phones on charge, cars in the garage, but no-one home!
It appears that the entire family has vanished!
A message has been left, however – written in blood across the mirror in Riva’s bedroom are three words:-
Detective Sergeant, Saul Anguish is sent to investigate, but will dark, disturbing thoughts from his past prevent him from carrying out his task efficiently?
When the likes of Ian Rankin gives this novel the heads up the reader knows that it’s going to be one hell of a roller-coaster ride!
And it doesn’t disappoint! It has more twists and turns than the Hampton Court Maze and heinous plots that would put even Guy Fawkes to shame.
The characters are beautifully crafted and are much darker and full of evil intent than they at first seem.
If suspense, intrigue and revenge tick all your boxes, this is a must-read for the year.
Into the Dark is available in hardback, paperback and e-book
