REVIEW⤏ THE DARK CORNERS OF THE NIGHT


BY MEG GARDINER




    SYNOPSIS FROM AUTHORS WEBSITE⇣
    I am the legion of the night.
    He appears in the darkness like a ghost, made of shadows and fear — the Midnight Man. He comes for the parents but leaves the children alive, tiny witnesses to unspeakable horror. The bedroom communities of Los Angeles are gripped with dread, and the attacks are escalating. Still reeling from her best friend’s close call in a bombing six months ago, FBI behavioral analyst Caitlin Hendrix has come to Los Angeles to assist in the Midnight Man investigation and do what she does best — hunt a serial killer. Her work is what keeps her going, but something about this UNSUB — unknown subject — doesn’t sit right. She soon realizes that this case will test not only her skills but also her dedication, for within the heart of a killer lives a secret that mirrors Caitlin’s own past. Hesitancy is not an option, but will she be able to do what must be done if the time comes?

      MY THOUGHTS⇣


      If you're like me and you find the intricacies of profiling fascinating, then this is definitely a series you would like.  If you don't, then you might find this to be a tad slow at times.  It goes deep into the psyche of someone who kills.

      This is dark, haunting and disturbing, and the pacing is super intense at times.  It could be read as a stand-alone...but you wouldn't know the backstory of Caitlin Hendrix and company.  Besides, the first two books were just as good as this one.  I do believe that there will be a fourth book in the series since there is a case that her boyfriend is working that is still left unsolved.
