Chris Patchell's latest novel, In the Dark, available August 4th from Kindle Press!
Jill Shannon is a rising star in the tech industry. Her marriage to Detective Shannon may be in a rut, but an affair with her sexy British boss keeps things interesting.
But when a reporter lures Jill to his hotel room under the pretense of conducting an interview, something in Jill snaps and a dark past she’s been trying to forget—and memories of an abusive stepfather—all come rushing back. Jill refuses to play the victim any longer.
Little does she realize that Alex is on the case of a series of cybercrimes resulting in the murders of two businessmen. Jill can’t outsmart the one person who knows her best in an explosive ending that pits husband against wife, past against present, and the truth against a deadly web of lies.
Marissa Rooney stands in her daughter’s empty dorm room, a half-used vial of insulin clutched in her trembling hand. Brooke has been missing for days. Her roommate hasn’t seen her since that night in the bar. And if Marissa has Brooke’s insulin, it means that Brooke does not.
The investigation takes a sudden and deadly turn when the police discover the body of another college student who went missing a few weeks before Brooke. Desperate to find her daughter, Marissa fears time is running out.
But she isn’t alone in her terror. A phantom from Marissa’s past is lurking in the shadows, waiting in the night, and holding her family captive…
In the dark...
