Book Description

2 Feb 2004

When a caller to a late night radio talk show announces his intention to murder a woman he's kidnapped within seventy-two hours, mayhem ensues. Paris Gibson, the mysterious host of the show in question, finds herself in the spotlight for the first time in years.

Who has been abducted? And what is the identity of the caller, known only as 'Valentino'? The clock is ticking and in the midst of the frenzy to track down the missing woman, Paris finds herself working alongside someone she's tried hard to forget: Dean Malloy, the police psychologist who's heading up the investigation.

With every hour that passes, the hunt grows increasingly desperate but how significant are the secrets that Dean and Paris conceal in their mutual past? They need to identify Valentino before he can execute his murderous plans . . . and before he can exact vengeance on Paris for trying to stop him.

HELLO DARKNESS is vintage Sandra Brown - breathtaking, electrifying and unputdownable.

4.0 out of 5 stars HELLO DARKNESS 16 Oct 2005
Sandra Brown is one of my favorite suspense writers. I enjoyed some of her other works such as ` ENVY' and `THE CRUSH' and `HELLO DARKENESS' ranks right up there with some of my favorites. It is a race against time when radio personality Paris Gibbson receives a terrifying phone call from a regular listener who goes by the name of Valentino. Valentino claims that upon Paris' advise his girlfriend is going to break up with him, so he has kidnapped her and plans to kill her in 72 hours leaving the girls death on Paris' conscious. When Paris enlists the help of the Austin police force she meets up with detective Dean Malloy someone who she though she had left in the past when she left her home town of Huston after a tragic accident.
As time winds down Paris and Malloy try desperately to find Valentino, while simultaneously trying to reconcile with their past, before he carries out his threat. This is a fast paced novel that truly kept me guessing until the very end.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book 7 Mar 2004
Having spent along time reading the lord of the rings, I fancied some easy reading and this fitted the bill perfectly. It has a great story with believeable characters and a convincing plot. I haven't quite finished it yet but i would be suprised if the ending doesn't live up to the first 3/4. Recommended - I'll certainly read another by this author

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly entertaining 30 Jun 2004
I read this book on on my way to work, never have I wished that my commute took longer! This is a thoroughly captivating book that keeps you turning pages right up to the end.

I would recommend this book to anyone, this is not a book you will be able to read over a few weeks - after page 1 you are hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumping good read 25 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my second book by Sandra Brown and I have loved them both. The pace is relentless and you never know who the perpetrator is, even though you have your suspicions, until the very last. I cannot understand how I have not noticed these books before but, as I have, I am delighted. Yes, at times the story becomes slightly implausible, but as its just a brilliant, fast paced story, i overlook this totally. I highly recommend this book, and this author, to anyone who likes a really good mystery / thriller which keeps you guessing until the very end. Another huge 10/10.
