A secluded mountain lodge. The perfect getaway. So remote no one will ever find you.

The promise of a luxury vacation at a secluded wilderness spa has brought together eight lucky guests. But nothing is what they were led to believe. As a fierce storm barrels down and all contact with the outside is cut off, the guests fear that it’s not a getaway. It’s a trap.

Each one has a secret. Each one has something to hide. And now, as darkness closes in, they all have something to fear—including one another.

Alerted to the vanished party of strangers, homicide cop Mason Deniaud and search and rescue expert Callie Sutton must brave the brutal elements of the mountains to find them. But even Mason and Callie have no idea how precious time is. Because the clock is ticking, and one by one, the guests of Forest Shadow Lodge are being hunted. For them, surviving becomes part of a diabolical game.

In The Dark is a retelling of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I enjoyed the fast paced plot and the characters were interesting. This was a very good reimagining of Christie’s famous novel, but there were a few issues. Indigenous/First Nations people’s monuments/cultural symbols/artwork items were utilized in a negative way, as warnings (calling them “freakish”, “ugly”, “god-awful”, “leering”, “garish”) without having another character point out that is a problem. Items such as totems and masks were unnecessary, wholly unrelated to the plot and characters, and included solely for suspense and in an attempt to ratchet up fear and demonstrate to the reader that something is seriously wrong and scary. Further, I wish the book had stated that the underage prostitute (also referred to as a hooker in this book) was actually a sex trafficked minor – you can’t be a prostitute if you are underage because you cannot consent to sex. Calling a minor a prostitute/sex worker is wrong. Content Warnings: rape; incest; fairly gruesome descriptions of injuries; discussions of child deaths Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC. The opinions in this review are honest and my own. #InTheDark #mystery

Note: An ARC was given generously in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Netgalley, the author for allowing me to review this. So. This novel held a promise of being great. But with unreliable and unidentifiable narrators, too many of them, slow pacing, and a cover which doesn't hold much interest, I succumbed to boredom and simply skipped on this novel after 4%. Hence why, not a recommend. But I would still like to try this author's works in the future. Until the next read, J.B

Loved it!!! Loved the story, characters and writing style- so pretty much everything. I had to make a little cheat sheet to keep everyone straight. The beginning was a little slow for me and I blame that on not knowing who everyone was. It was just confusing. There's a lot of characters to juggle. There were so many twists and turns. For awhile I was suspicious of everyone. Never would have suspected who was behind most of the murders. I wasn't ready for the book to end. What happens to Callie and her husband? What happens to Mason? That was unexpected about Peter, Callie's husband. I thought he was probably having a midlife crisis and living with another woman. So much work went into getting everybody together. Too bad the person didn't use their energy for good instead of revenge. I enjoyed finding out how everyone was connected. I think if everyone would have communicated and told the truth, it would have ended better for most of them. That lodge was terrifying. I would have locked myself in one of the rooms and just hoped someone came to rescue me. If I ever get invited to a secluded mountain range, I will say NO!!! Definitely recommend the book. It was a great suspense/mystery. This is the first book I read by the author and I can't wait to read more. Would love to read a series around Callie and Mason. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Montlake Romance through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

With shades of the Agatha Christie mystery, And Then There Were None, this was an enjoyable read. When a group of people, each with their own secret, are lured to a secluded ‘holiday resort’, you know the outcome isn’t going to be good. This book jumps between the events at the resort, where the guests are targeted, and become distrustful of each other, not knowing who’s behind their predicament, or who will be next to die, and the law enforcement/search and rescue team who are trying to find the missing group. In The Dark is a compelling, fast paced mystery that kept me guessing.

In The Dark is a gripping tale of what happens when you hide the truth and it comes back to bite you. This is my first book of Loreth Anne White but after reading this brilliantly plotted suspense thriller, it will not be the last. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

4.25 stars-IN THE DARK by Loreth Ann White is a contemporary, adult, stand alone, mystery thriller akin to Agatha Christie’s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (aka Ten Little Indians). Told from several third person and first person perspectives following two timelines, IN THE DARK follows homicide cop Mason Deniaud and search and rescue expert Callie Sutton as they are called into a potential crime scene where a plane and its’ ‘pilot’ have been found in the BC forest, a pilot with obvious signs of knife wounds in her neck. What ensues is the search for the truth, and the discovery that more than one person fell victim to a masterful game. Loreth Anne White pulls the reader into a mystery thriller as we are up close and personal with a group of people who have been invited to the opening of a new high-end lodge and spa in the BC wilderness , a group of people connected by sins of the past. From a PI to a former police officer, to a doctor, a business woman and her husband, a former prostitute, a one-time newscaster, and an airline pilot, the fated group will slowly succumbed to a game of revenge and betrayal, secrets and lies. Having willingly walked into a trap, the guests become pawns and prey to a killer, and the wilderness alike. IN THE DARK is a story of intrigue and mystery; of revenge and retribution; of secrets and lies; of circumstance and opportunity. The premise is entertaining, sensational, and electrifying ; the characters are numerous, dynamic, and fated to die.
