    i liked this book so much better than Stealing Faces. i thought this story was just a better story. i was told this book was so slow and boring and blah blah blah, but i said hey everyone has a differnt i decided to give it a shot. it was wonderful! great characters and interesting story even though the climax was kinda predictable, but still a great read. i can't wait to read Michael Prescott's 'the Shadow Hunter'.

    A reviewer

    Michael Prescott's novel Comes the Dark, was published by Signet in 1999. The main idea I got out of this novel is that when something horrible happens when you are younger or even as a adult it will always affect you somehow, even for those who just try to forget it and try to move on, because at the end it will come back and affect your life no matter how hard you try. This story takes place in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. The unusual thing is that in that town there are no problems because it is very quiet and small. It starts with Erica and Robert surviving a horrible crime when they were real young kids. The two live their lives way different and everytime something goes wrong with a girl close to that town Robert is always the first to be accused. That mainly happens because of the way he lives his life and because it is obvious that he was affected really bad by the crime when he was a little boy. Later in the story Erica wants to find out the truth about many things including her brother, Robert's life. When she left people became very worry that she went missing, especially Chief Connor and you might have figured it out already everyone accused Robert of having something to do with his sisters disappearance. There are really just three main characters, but that is all that the story needed, and they are Erica, Robert and Chief Ben Connor. Erica is the older sister of Robert. She is the one of the two survivors who didn't let that crime she experienced ruin her life completely because she moved on with her life. She is married and she is also a very successful art dealer. Robert on the other hand was not so lucky because he is not at all successful, he has a very troubling lifestyle, because he lives in a cabin in the woods and is continouosly accused of murdering women when they go missing. Chief Connor is the man that takes on the case of Erica going missing first. He is also the guy that always makes Robert's life more miserable with all the accusations. In conclusion, even though it started really slow and boring it picks up the pace and gets real good. So if you want to find out why Chief Conner was the most worry about the disapperance of Erica and also what happens with Robert and Erica and who murdered the mysteriously missing women then I recommend this novel it is very interesting. This book is really good because you can feel all the horror and excitment the characters feel and go through. The only other problem that I had with this novel besides the beginning is that at times it could be a little difficult to understand. Also if I could read a three hundred and ninety-six page book you could read it it goes faster than you know it because you will get so involved in the story. You will not regret reading this book.

    Michael Prescott is amazing at twisting and turning plots. You cannot guess at the conclusions! Well done.

    Great book!

    Didn't want to put it down. The only thing I can be critical of is the very end. It doesn't completely fit the characters. But I really stayed up half the night because I didn't want to put it down.

    Predictable, verbose without reason and fairly boring. Give me Matt Reilly, Preston and Child, or Jeffrey Deaver anyday. I was VERY disappointed in this book

    Boring book

    This book had no mystery to it. There was nothing surprising in this book. If you like mysteries, read Next Victim. Next Victim should recieve a 10 out of 10.
