It's hard to recognize the devil when his hand is on your shoulder. That's because a psychopath is just a person before he becomes a headline...Psychopaths have preferences for Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts coffee, denim or linen, Dickens or...well, you get the point. Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen more than her share of psychopaths. She is ready to put all that behind her, building a new life in Tucson with a husband, friends, and some nice quiet work as a private investigator. Sure, she could still kill a man half her age, but she now gets her martial arts practice by teaching self-defense at a women's shelter. But sometimes it isn't that simple. When her sister-in-law dies, Brigid take in her seventeen-year-old niece, Gemma Kate. There has always been something unsettling about Gemma-Kate, but family is family. Which is fine, until Gemma-Kate starts taking an unhealthy interest in dissecting the local wildlife. Meanwhile, Brigid agrees to help a local couple by investigating the death of their son-which also turns out not to be that simple. Her house isn't the sanctuary it used to be, and new dangers-including murder-seem to lurk everywhere. Brigid starts to wonder if there is anyone she can trust, or if the devil has simply moved closer to home. Becky Masterman's Fear the Darkness is the masterful follow-up to the Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Rage Against the Dying.

"Masterman's thriller continues the story of retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn. While narrator Suzanne Toren provides a convincing persona for the senior protagonist and even more so her good friend, Mallory, she seems to lack enough range to voice plausible characterizations for many of the other characters. Several teenagers feature in the plot, and all the roles blend vocally together in this production, which can be confusing. Where Quinn's niece loses the innocent tone to her speech, no such change occurs in Toren's presentation of the character. Furthermore, her overall pace is tediously slow and the climax underwhelming for a thriller, so listeners desiring plenty of action may want to pass on this audiobook.
