Summary

Into the Dark is the new dark and gripping crime thriller from Fiona Cummins about revenge, greed, ambition and the true cost of friendship. 

The place: Seawings, a beautiful art deco home overlooking the sweep of the bay in Midtown-on-Sea.

The crime: the gilded Holden family—Piper and Gray and their two teenage children, Riva and Artie—has vanished from the house without a trace.

The detective: DS Saul Anguish, brilliant but with a dark past, treads the narrow line between light and shade.

One late autumn morning, Piper’s best friend arrives at Seawings to discover an eerie scene—the kettle is still warm, all the family’s phones are charging on the worktop, the cars are in the garage. But the house is deserted. 

In 15-year-old Riva Holden’s bedroom, scrawled across the mirror in blood, are three words: 

Make

Them

Stop

What happens next?

Dark and twisty but unpleasant

I loved this in the first hour or so but as it progressed I disliked all the characters and didn’t care what happened.

I skipped through chapters.

I found this book rather depressing not helped by the narrator who droned on in a monotone voice. The story was disjointed and tedious so I skipped through to nearer the end which did turn out to have a twist to it. I certainly would not recommend this book. A complete waste of a credit. One big depressing yawn.

A depressing story to listen to

Firstly I found the 2 stories running through this distracting and couldn't see the point of the second strand. I listened to the end but could not engage with any of these characters nor the rather obvious ending. The intense, terminally depressed tone of the narrator reflected the story accurately but I did not enjoy the performance. I won't be getting anything by this author again
