That Darkness by: Lisa Black

That Darkness

I received this copy form Netgalley and the Publishers in exchange for a honest review.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love the mystery genre.  It has always been one of my favorite types of books to read.  When I was given the chance to read this for a review, I was looking for a new mystery to read.

Synopsis:  As a forensic investigator for the Cleveland Police Department, Maggie Gardiner has seen her share of Jane Does. The latest is an unidentified female in her early teens, discovered in a local cemetery. More shocking than the girl’s injuries—for Maggie at least—is the fact that no one has reported her missing. She and the detectives assigned to the case (including her cop ex-husband) are determined to follow every lead, run down every scrap of evidence. But the monster they seek is watching each move, closer to them than they could ever imagine.

Jack Renner is a killer. He doesn’t murder because he savors it, or because he believes himself omnipotent, or for any reason other than to make the world a safer place. When he follows the trail of this Jane Doe to a locked room in a small apartment where eighteen teenaged girls are anything but safe, he knows something must be done. But his pursuit of their captor takes an unexpected turn.

Maggie Gardiner finds another body waiting for her in the autopsy room—and a host of questions that will challenge everything she believes about justice, morality, and the true nature of evil.

My Review:  It took a bit of time to get through this book.  My husband and I binge watched the television series Dexter and really enjoyed it.  I mention this only because this book read like the series finale of Dexter.  I knew what was going to happen before it did.  I was disappointed because it was almost the same scenarios.  It was well written but the story line fell flat for me.

I gave this 2.5 crowns.
