When Detective Nick Fourcade enters the home of Genevieve Gauthier outside the sleepy town of Bayou Breaux, Louisiana, the bloody crime scene that awaits him is both the most brutal and the most confusing he's ever seen. Genevieve's seven-year-old son, P. There is no evidence of forced entry, not a clue that points to a motive. Meanwhile, Nick's wife, Detective Annie Broussard, sits in the emergency room with the grieving Genevieve. A mother herself, Annie understands the emotional devastation this woman is going through.
A young boy disappears. There are no witnesses, no clues — only a note, cleverly taunting, casually cruel. Has a cold-blooded kidnapper struck? Or is this the reawakening of a long-quiet serial killer? In the rural parishes of Louisiana's French Triangle, young women are disappearing one by one, only to turn up on the banks of the bayou, strangled and cast aside where they are sure to be found. But there is one trophy the killer prizes above all others, one woman who must be silenced forever Attorney Laurel Chandler did not come back to Bayou Breaux to seek justice.
That once-burning obsession had destroyed her credibility, her career, her marriage - and nearly her sanity. But when a ruthless predator strikes too close to home, she's lured into a perverse game from which there may be no escape. He performs his profane ceremony in a wooded Minneapolis park, anointing his victims, then setting the bodies ablaze. He has already claimed three lives, and he won't stop there.

I'm still laughing my ass off about that and Abi's accident at Carmen and Matt's house. Overall, Dark Light was an emotional, sexy, blazing hot, read that deserves the five stars that I am giving it. I can't wait to read the next book, and from the excerpt at the end, I trust it's going to be a blazing hot, juicy one. Jul 31, Laura rated it it was amazing. Dark Light was given to me for an honest review by V. Avent In this book Zach and Abi get married and tossed in jail because of the sicko rapist shrink and then there is the crazy psycho Taylor the bimbo who revamped her look hoping to look more like Abi.
All the while someone; either psych shrink of the psycho bimbo or maybe someone else is still gunning for Abi. This left me totally emotionally drained at the end.
