Into the Dark: A Novel of Suspense (Brenna Spector Novel #2) (Paperback)
Can a stranger share your memories?
That's the question that haunts Brenna Spector when she first sees footage of missing webcam performer Lula Belle. Naked but hidden in shadow, the "performance artist" shares her deepest, darkest secrets with her unseen male audience . . . secrets that, to Brenna, are chillingly familiar.
Brenna has perfect memory, able to recall in astonishing detail every moment of every day of her adult life. But her childhood—those carefree years before the traumatic disappearance of her sister, Clea—is frustratingly vague. When Brenna listens to the stories Lula Belle tells her audience, stories only Brenna and Clea could know, those years come to life again in vivid detail. Convinced the missing internet performer has ties to her sister, Brenna takes the case—and in her quest for Lula Belle unravels a web of obsession, sex, guilt, and murder that could regain her family . . . or cost her life.
“The perfect storm; a serious talent hits on a great idea and sparks a wonderful new character we’ll follow anywhere. One of my favorite writers raises the bar--again.”
“Label me a big fan.”
“A fresh new talent.”
“A deftly plotted, completely involving novel with one of the most memorable protagonists to come along in years. Brenna Spector is tough, loyal, and canny -- and that’s just in her day-to-day life as the mother of an adolescent.”
“Wow. Book jacket blurbs by Harlan Coben, Laura Lippman and Lee Child! I had to see what had three such heavy hitters more or less gushing about Alison Gaylin. Lesson: You should always trust the heavy hitters.”
“Best new suspense series”
‘Spector is a very real character with very real problems.”
