Fear the Darkness

Fear the Darkness is the follow up to Becky Masterman’s first book, Rage Against the Dying. Retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn is settling into marriage, making friends, and trying to figure out how to fit into her new life in Tucson. To complicate matters, Brigid takes in her sister-in-law’s teenage daughter Gemma Kate who has suddenly taken an interest in dissecting the desert wildlife.  On top of her family drama, Brigid has also told a local couple that she will investigate the death of their son. Needless to say, life is far from quiet.

Masterman excels at red herrings stories and I love a book that keeps me guessing.  She also creates some of the baddest of bad guys keeping her novels intense and suspenseful.  Brigid is such a great character.  She is resourceful, smart, and one tough-cookie.  It has been refreshing to read a main character who is a little older and wiser but can still hold her own in a fight. This is a great mystery series to start reading.  Her first book was a nominee for both an Anthony and an Edgar.

Becky Masterman will be here for a book signing on January 31st from 2:00 – 3:00 PM.
