Overview

"Psychiatrist Robin Cameron seems on the verge of success with an experimental program that uses a magnetic helmet to trigger, then modify, old angers that cause criminal behavior.

She has been working with a promising candidate for behavior modification, an atypical serial killer Justin Gray--his murders of high school girls involved mixed motivation--he didn't torture them or sexually molest them, and he has to drink to deal with death.

Another, very reluctant, subject of her experimental treatment is LAPD Sergeant Alan Brand, who unwittingly admits to a cold-blooded killing while under Robin's care.

When Gray escapes and Robin's teenaged daughter, Megan, is kidnapped, Robin doesn't know who to accuse—or whether there’s something even darker, nastier and more complicated afoot.

The story takes place over a period of only two days and the suspense doesn't let up until the last page."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Those who prefer thrillers packed with psychological complexity, truly demented characters and nonstop, unexpected plot twists will enjoy this terrifying treat from Prescott (Next Victim, etc.). Brilliant psychiatrist Robin Cameron seems on the verge of success with an experimental program that uses a magnetic helmet to trigger, then modify, old angers that cause criminal behavior. Atypical serial killer Justin Gray initially seems a promising subject for rehab since his murders of high school girls involved mixed motivations he didn't torture them or sexually molest them, and he has to drink to deal with death. Indeed, Gray seems almost cuddly compared to traumatized LAPD Sergeant Alan Brand, who unwittingly admits to a cold-blooded killing while under Robin's care. When Gray escapes and Robin's teenaged daughter is kidnapped, Robin doesn't know who to accuse. The possibly rehabbed killer? The supposed good cop Alan? Or is there a bigger and more sinister conspiracy afoot? The suspense doesn't let up until the last page, and even then, readers will continue to speculate, as Robin does, whether a killer's yearning for blood is learned or innate. Without a doubt, this dark, compulsive read messes with your mind and makes you love it. Agent, Jane Dystel of Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Feb. 3) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    VERY DISSAPOINTED

    It started out OK, picked up at a good 'can`t put this book down pace' only to be be very dissapointed with the last 10 chapters or so getting very, very silly. As if the writer lost his whole point of a good story and was runing out of deadline time.I will give him one more chance as I have another book of his, I hope its better then this one!!!

    This is a good book

    I found this book very hard to put down. The story was well developed and the twists in the story leave you staying up way past your bed time reading the next chapter. I read at least two to three books a week. And this novel goes on my 'thumbs up shelf'...enjoy!!!

    Put 'In Dark Places' in a dark place

    This is a crude, coarse, laughable book. For Publisher's Weekly to rave about it, one wonders if they were paid for the review. There is no suspense. The author resorts to use of gratuitous foul language, which doesn't thrill or terrify -- it only repels. From the rave blurbs to Publisher's Weekly review, I expected a good story. What I found instead was tiresome.
