Gathering Dark

Gathering Dark by Candice Fox

Description:

Gathering Dark is a new standalone thriller set in Los Angeles from #1 New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author Candice Fox.

A convicted killer. A gifted thief. A vicious ganglord. A disillusioned cop. Together they’re a missing girl’s only hope.

Dr. Blair Harbour, once a wealthy, respected pediatric surgeon, is now an ex-con down on her luck. She’s determined to keep her nose clean and win back custody of her son. But when her former cellmate begs for help to find her missing daughter, Blair is compelled to put her new-found freedom on the line.

Detective Jessica Sanchez has always had a difficult relationship with the LAPD. And her inheritance of a multi-million dollar mansion as a reward for catching a killer has just made her police enemy number one.

It’s been ten years since Jessica arrested Blair for cold-blooded murder. So when Jessica opens the door to the disgraced doctor late one night she expects abuse, maybe even violence. What comes next is a plea for help… (publisher)

My take:

Gathering Dark is a crazy ride of a crime thriller. This is a gritty story of revenge, making amends and second chances. It’s filled with interesting characters, insane situations, and strong, gutsy women – most I couldn’t help but cheer for as they met their challenges. That said, be warned there are vividly violent scenes. Seriously, I was holding my breath and feeling anxious during much of the book – which is why I am surprised by how much I look forward to seeing where Candice Fox takes Jessica and company in the next installment.

  1. So tempting but I hate reading violence although I do do it from time to time. What a range of characters, mix them up and make a good story.
