It is a concentrated, one whack after another, did she or didn't she. Lynn Hightower is just so good with words, and her style keeps you reading. This is really a good book. Truly. I started it on a Saturday and was finished by the Sunday afternoon. I just didn't want to put it down.

Enjoyable Psychological Thriller 29 Mar 2014
By Deborah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Even in Darkness, due to be released by Severn House on April 1, was a very good psychological thriller. Although the writing was not as polished, it reminded me of Rosamund Lupton's books and Turn of Mind, by Alice LaPlante.

Hightower perfectly captured the voice of Joy Miller, a retired female evangelist, whose daughter-in-law and granddaughter have been kidnapped by a serial killer with some sort of personal tie to Joy. Hightower did a very good job of dropping hints as to the nature of this connection, and I thought that I had figured it out by the middle of the book, but I was taken completely by surprise at the end.

The primary sour note was Joy's interactions with a secondary character, Father Panatel of the Abbey of Gethsemani, an Indian monk who has also had a prior connection to the killer. I recognize that there can be some eccentricities of language when native Indian speakers speak English, but, in print at least, those quirks seemed heavy-handed and cartoonish. The episodes with Father Panatel did not significantly advance the plot and could have been cut without adversely affecting the story. On the other hand, Hightower's description of Joy's relationship with her dog Leo was spot on, and I found myself smiling in recognition of Leo's behavior.

I thoroughly enjoyed Even in Darkness and found it very hard to put down.

I received a free copy of Even in Darkness through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
