Additional Information

It's hard to recognize the devil when his hand is on your shoulder. That's because a psychopath is just a person before he becomes a headline….Psychopaths have preferences for Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts coffee, denim or linen, Dickens or…well, you get the point.

Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen more than her share of psychopaths. She is ready to put all that behind her, building a new life in Tucson with a husband, friends, and some nice quiet work as a private investigator. Sure, she could still kill a man half her age, but she now gets her martial arts practice by teaching self-defense at a women's shelter.

But sometimes it isn't that simple. When her sister-in-law dies, Brigid take in her seventeen-year-old niece, Gemma Kate. There has always been something unsettling about Gemma-Kate, but family is family. Which is fine, until Gemma-Kate starts taking an unhealthy interest in dissecting the local wildlife.

Meanwhile, Brigid agrees to help a local couple by investigating the death of their son—which also turns out not to be that simple. Her house isn't the sanctuary it used to be, and new dangers—including murder—seem to lurk everywhere. Brigid starts to wonder if there is anyone she can trust, or if the devil has simply moved closer to home.

Becky Masterman's Fear the Darkness is the masterful follow-up to the Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Rage Against the Dying.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) Retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn is all about life's second acts. With her 60th birthday right around the corner she's settling in to her first marriage and adapting to life in Tucson. As a private investigator she's her own boss and chooses which cases she wants to take. After a lifetime spent working undercover and chasing serial killers, Brigid's current life is practically...conventional.

Two back-to-back events unsettle Brigid's newfound equilibrium: her 17 year old niece comes to live with her, and she (reluctantly) agrees to look into the death of a 14 year old boy. What initially appeared to be an open-and-shut case of accidental drowning may be something more sinister, and Brigid's afraid that she's invited something more into her home than just a moody teenager.

First I have to say that I love the idea of a sixtyish female protagonist in a Mystery. Granted, there are plenty of middle-aged fictional sleuths, but generally they putter around in "Cozy"... Read more
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) First of all I would give this book ten stars if I could. Secondly it was so good and so engrossing and exciting I read it in a day and a half.

The main and most important characters in this book...

Brigid Quinn...her ex-priest husband...Carlo...her niece Gemma-Kate...her new bestie Mallory and the Pugs...Brigid's beloved yet nameless Pugs...are all key characters. There are tons of other characters but the above mentioned ones are the essential ones.

My very brief story summary that includes bits and bobs from the beginning, middle and end of this book...

This is a mystery so my summary will be sort of bare bones. Brigid is retired and working as a PI. When her sister in law dies...she is asked to take in her niece...Gemma-Kate...for a few months. Gemma's behavior is less than desirable and some of her actions are questionable...especially when one of the pugs nearly dies. Her attitude bites and everyone's life takes a downward turn. Brigid begins to feel ill...people at a church function become... Read more
