Review & Giveaway ~ INTO THE DARK

A two-hundred-mile labyrinth of dark storm drains serves as a refuge for the delusional stalker who will go to any lengths to possess fragile, emotionally isolated Emilie Davis. To survive, Emilie will have to confront the secrets of her past she has kept locked away from everyone, including herself. Emilie is a master escape artist—she’s fled a manipulative mother and a controlling ex-husband. But it’s impossible to evade a stalker who uses a bank robbery as a ruse to kidnap her. He’s still out there, hiding in the Las Vegas tunnels and dodging police. Emilie’s life careens out of control as her assailant continues his pursuit.

She has nowhere to turn but to Nathan Madigan, the hostage negotiator who worked the robbery. Nathan is haunted by his failure to protect a loved one fourteen years ago and dedicates his life to saving others. Determined to catch the lunatic hunting Emilie, he finds himself losing his professional detachment. He fears history is about to repeat itself if he cannot protect Emilie from the Taker’s obsession. At the height of The Taker’s madness, his attempt to replace someone he’s lost will either kill them all or set them free.

My thoughts...

I love a good psychological thriller and this was one that kept me wanting to read more! "The Taker" is after his prize which happens to be Bank Manager, Emilie Davis. He has come to claim her and gets his chance when he is a participant in a bank robbery. It doesn't take Emilie long to figure out he is more interested in her than in getting money. Something goes wrong and he escapes without her...this time. What follows is a frightening tale of stalking, kidnapping, and more.

This is a book I couldn't put down! It has everything that makes for a great novel, romance, suspense, and a good ending. It's fast paced and entertaining. 5 out of 5 stars! Enter to win a copy below.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher via Partners In Crime Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Meet the Author

Raised in southeastern Iowa, Stacy Green grew up watching crime shows with her parents, so her love of suspense and psychological thrillers is no surprise. She’s fascinated by the workings of the criminal mind and explores true crime on her popular Thriller Thursday posts at her blog, Turning the Page.

After earning her degree in journalism, Stacy worked in advertising before becoming a stay-at-home mom to her miracle child. She rediscovered her love of writing and wrote several articles for a city magazine before penning her first novel. She shelved the long drama and began working on a suspense book set in Las Vegas, featuring a heroine on the edge of disaster, a tormented villain, and the city’s infamous storm drains that house hundreds of homeless.

Into The Dark is suspense with a dash of romance, and Stacy is hard at work on her next book, a darker, grittier thriller set in the Deep South.

When she’s not writing, she spends all her time with her precocious daughter, supportive husband, and their three obnoxious but lovable canine children.
