After moving to Las Vegas, Emilie struggles to restart her life and move past the family secrets whose weight could crush her. She gets a quiet job at a local bank and a loyal cat to come home to. The pieces are finally starting to fall into place when a robbery at the bank shatters her carefully constructed peace of mind. Now, with her life on the line, she'll have to face both old demons and new ones in order to make it out alive.
Nathan Madigan, Las Vegas SWAT and hostage negotiator, risks his life to protect others. What starts out as a routine assignment quickly grows into something which will set his world off balance. While he knows it's against the rules to get personally involved with a victim in an open case, he feels a need to protect Emilie from imminent danger and a savvy criminal that keeps eluding police.
Into the Dark will take the reader on an intense journey through both the Las Vegas tunnels and the minds of several exceptionally well written characters. Stacy Green excels at writing characters with great depth. They are both believable in their strengths and struggles, and impossible to forget even long after the story is finished. Into the Dark is a captivating psychological thriller with just the right blend of mystery, romance, action and suspense to make it unforgettable!
The storm drains in this book caused the inner city life of Las Vegas to come to life for me. Our heroin, with a stalker from hell is almost taken from the life she knows into said drain system.
I loved the fact that the author made the villain human enough to elicit some response other than the normal "I hate his guts'. And our heroin is truly a strong woman with a strong character.
Often I find that a strong female character is one who simply does not faint. Not fainting doth not a strong woman make, although given by the 5th time a heroin has a fainting spell I want to slap her. This is not necessary here in this book.
Here the good guys are good, the bad guys are bad though human and it is Nathan and his dad's relationship that made me tear up. Yes, a bit of a romance but the building of a relationship after a tragedy for Nathan got me all misty eyed.
I look forward to read more by this author.
A good read if psychological thriller is your game...
I really enjoyed reading this suspense novel (which did contain a bit of romance). I actually didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did after reading the book description, though. There's a few twists (one which was obvious, at least for me). I thought the characters were nicely done--I definitely liked that both H&h had similar guilt issues. I think I would've liked to read more of Sarah in the book, since she's such a good influence in Emilie's life, though we only read about her a few times is all and in only small doses.
I really enjoyed that the setting of this story. I actually lived in Henderson a long time ago, so it's nice to read a book that revolved around a place that's familiar to me. I also liked that it talks about the storm drains under Las Vegas. It created a different kind of spin on suspense.
Overall, this book reads nicely and I didn't see any plot errors. A plus, I didn't see too many punctuation errors. I think Stacy Green did a very good job on this suspense. I also liked her writing style. There were only a few descriptions that were phrased oddly, like "She touched her bound hands to his shoulder". I just imagine Emilie actually touching her own hands when it's phrased like that. Some may not mind, but it's just something that broke my attention to the story.
Nonetheless, I would still recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense. I definitely would read more by this author in the future.
Emilie has a stalker. He's in delusional love, and will stop at nothing to win his lady. I liked that Emilie managed to pull herself out of the panic that would understandably follow an attempted kidnapping to try to help solve her own case. She's not waiting around to be rescued, she's determined to rescue herself. With help, of course.
I thought the main theme of this story was interesting. The secrets people keep, and the damage they do to themselves and those around them, can be devastating even years after the event. And often, the secret isn't even important. Instead of running from the problem, if we turn around and face it we find out it's not that bad after all and we're able to not only overcome it, but to move past it and on to bigger and better things.
That's what Emilie does for herself, and what she helps teach those around her to do as well. All while finding her own stalker and trying not to get killed in the process.
This is a good mystery. No magic, vampires, or anything paranormal. Just plain, old, everyday, creepy, stalker-y, real life with a dash of romance. If you're looking for a good read for the weekend give this a try.
