The Dark Corners of the Night by Meg Gardiner is a very, very
highly recommended thriller/procedural and the third book in the UNSUB
series featuring FBI behavioral analyst
There is a killer on the loose in Los Angeles who calls himself the
Midnight Man, the legion of the night. He sneaks into homes of families
in the middle of the night and kills the parents, first the man, then
the woman, but he leaves the children alive, terrorized witnesses to his
crimes. The attacks are escalating and the FBI has been called in to help track down the serial killer. Caitlin Hendrix is still reeling from the bombing at the hospital where her best friend was seriously injured six months earlier. Now Caitlyn
is back in Los Angeles to assist in the hunt for the Midnight Man, but
as she delves into the case she begins to notice some settling clues to
the killer's identity.
Those of you who love your thrillers and procedurals will want to immediately get your hands on The Dark Corners of the Night. It is
a tense, action packed, nail biting investigation into the identity of a
killer and just as incredible as the first two books in the series,
UNSUB and Into the Black Nowhere. While you can read The Dark Corners of the Night as a stand-alone, the first two books in the series are just as exceptional. This is a stay-up-all-night-reading thriller.
expected, this is a superbly written novel with a solid plot where
clues, revelations, and suppositions about the killer are shocking and
lead to stunning conclusions. The search for the killer is riveting and
will completely hold your attention. At this point, having read the
previous two books in the series, I know these characters and their
flaws, however Gardiner does have forward movement in the character
development that make them even more human.
The heart stopping ending to the search is
perfectly executed and Gardiner also ends the narrative on a positive
note for Caitlyn. This is another stay-up-all-night-stuck-at-the-airport
book... in a well lit area near security and lots of foot traffic.
