If Desmond Doane keeps writing like this, I can say with certainty he will be the next Dean Koontz.
If you've seen any "ghost hunting" reality shows from the past decade, you'll drop right into The Dark Man rather easily, but it isn't a necessity. We're quickly given a portrait of our protagonist, Ford Atticus Ford, one-half of a long-running reality show. The show, run with his friend and co-host Mike Long, was successful. Very successful. That success went to their heads and they went to far, encountering a demon neither one could handle and harming an innocent child in the process.
In The Dark Man, Ford is on a personal quest to atone for his mistakes...and maybe encounter that demon again. Ford finds a case and pursues it with the tenacity of a man with nothing to lose.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Dark Man and look forward to more cases in the Graveyard: Classified series. Ford is an engaging character and his search for penance and absolution is worth exploring -- and it doesn't hurt that there are more than a few bumps along the way. Well done Mr. Doane.
This is a great start for a new series. Ford Atticus Ford (silly name) is a great character. He is working on his path of redemption but he knows he has a long way to go. He wants to fix things but he also knows that he will need the help of his old friends that left him. This striving is what makes his character so easy to like.
I also enjoyed the humor throughout the book. The characters are able to laugh at themselves and their former lives as ghost hunters (or at least aspects of it). But they also treat the subject seriously which helps to make them believable.
I look forward to the next installment.
The way this story bounces back and forth between the recent past (a past investigation) and the present is rather irritating, especially when the past is just plopped in the story line at seemingly random places. The jolting back and forth takes the reader out of the story as does all the talking to the reader.
The first person present tense (ack!) doesn't help.
This could have been such a great story if placed in the appropriate sequence so the suspense and story are allowed to unfold, and of course third person would make it rock.
The smattering of humor is at times used well but at others, not so much.
Overall, while there is a lot of room for improvement, this isn't bad.
I will be interested to see how book two comes out and may check out this author's other works under his other pen name.
I received this book from the Kindle Scout program.
I don't like books that don't have endings, even if there are follow up books.

Easy to read, it flowed nicely and there was a good build to the story. I just got the other 2 books in the series after finishing this one.Read more
