Book Summary:

Molly Bradley has a secret. Few people know this secret – the only exceptions being her family, including her husband. She’s managed to change her life, walking away from this secret. That is until the night her husband was murdered.

Now everything is coming back to the surface, and Molly only has so much time to solve her husband’s murder – before it’s too late. But things will get darker before they get better. They always do.

My Review:

Ohh. You will enjoy All the Dark Places if you appreciate a good layered mystery. Whenever I thought I had a handle on the mystery, it evolved. I love it when that happens! This book is perfect if you love being surprised.

All the Dark Places has two primary perspectives – Molly and Detective Rita Myers. Myers’ perspective almost made me feel like this should have been the start of a new mystery/thriller series. Part of me wishes that was the case if that makes sense.

I enjoyed how Molly’s secret tied together with everything happening – though not in ways you might expect. Likewise, the ending made sense, including the villain reveal. I feel like there may have been one or two too many subplots, but otherwise, I enjoyed this thriller.
