A woman and child are found locked in a basement room, barely alive.
No one knows who they are — the woman can't speak, and there are no missing persons reports that match their profile. The elderly man who owns the house claims he has never seen them before.
The inhabitants of the quiet Oxford street are in shock. How could this happen right under their noses? But DI Adam Fawley knows that nothing is impossible.
And that no one is as innocent as they seem ...
In the dark is a very dark story. There are lots of twists in the plot and a lot of characters to get your head around. Some reviewers complained about the number of characters but a book that follows a police investigation of a gruesome crime is bound to have lots of characters. And when it becomes linked with a previous unsolved murder cue more twists and more characters.
The book kept me interested and guessing but I wasn't completely sold on the ending.
