If you love scary thrillers, you love this one from debut author Chris Mooney. Take Kathy Reichs's forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan from the Bones series, and Lisa Black's CSI Theresa McLean series, two great elements in this dark thriller. Darby McCormick is a crime scene investigator for the Boston crime lab. Over twenty years ago, she and two of her high school friends watched someone commit a crime. One of her friends died and the other was presumed missing. Now fast forward as Darby's on a new case, when she finds someone alive, near a missing person's home. And the clues form an interesting case and a creepy sadist serial killer. There's plenty of twists and turns in this one, right to the shocking ending. This is a great start for the series, when there's plenty of dark terror in sight.
