Overview

The most dangerous place to hide is in the dark...

A tough special-agent with the Department of Justice, and a dedicated single mother to her orphaned nephews, Samantha Chase is unbreakable. Until two women, both from the shadows of Sam's past, are discovered strangled. For Sam, the most unnerving detail is the eucalyptus branch tucked behind the victims' ears-the signature of a notorious serial murder already convicted and executed for his crimes.

To detective Nick Thomas, the only link to the copycat killings is Sam herself. And when she becomes the target of threats-each one more menacing than the last-his feelings for her just might jeopardize the case. But to understand the killer's twisted motive is to explore Sam's past-and a crime she's spent a lifetime trying to bury...

Believe this was my first book written by Danielle Girard. It is always with anticipation that one reads an author for the first time because you do not know what to expect. When I finished this book I wrote "Excellent" on the cover, which is where I make comments on most of the books I read to keep them distinguished from the books I have not read. This is a typical mystery, thriller in which the main character gets into a lot of trouble that they do not see coming and then have to work their way out of the trouble - sometimes alone and sometimes with another person. In this case there is another person, Nick Thomas. Would happily read other books by this author. J. Robert Ewbank, author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

This is the third Danielle Girard novel, and each one keeps getting better. Which is interesting, because she arrived on the scene with a better sense of characterization and plot pacing than most of the so-called 'big boys' who, when it comes to quality writing if not sales, can't hold a candle to her work. If you're tired of predictable thrillers and want to get personally involved with the characters you are reading about, then give CHASING DARKNESS a try. You'll join the growing legion of Danielle Girard fans when you do.

This is my first book by this author. A slow start, but turned out to be a most enjoyable read. The suspense kept me turning the pages. Loved Nick and Sam. The ending was unexpected and bittersweet. Plan to read other books by this author.

As my headline implies. Descriptive, weaves and turns with unexpected ending.

There is some foul language and some explicit pedophile sexual scenes. This is NOT a book for the teen and under age group.

Suspence, intrigue, murder and abuse play roles in this book. Keeps the reader forever guessing the identity of the murderer. I will read more books by this author, this one being the first.

What can I say that hasn't already been said. This book is the best I've read without a recommendation. It has kept me on the edge until the end.

Fast paced mystery. Cared about the characters right away, the author teased us along with initially untold tragic pasts. A couple great twists near the end. Definately recommend. Not overtly gruesome or sexual.

I'm not finished reading this book yet but it has kept me up late reading for the last few nights. I'm almost finished and can't wait to get back to it so I can see if I'm right in figuring out the killer. So far, I was wrong! I highly recommend reading this book! I certainly am going to read more of this writer's books.

Every time you think you have what coming figured out, the author turns in another direction. Well written. I would certainly follow her in another book.
