Blunt-Force Drama!

Reader beware: Mature subject matter! If you’re not deterred by graphic erotica or strong language, by all means enter the dark. Be prepared to descend into the abyss of eight short stories that delve into dismal and disturbing scenarios drenched in the realism of dysfunction, disappointment, and despair. Throughout her storytelling, the author fluctuates between waxing exquisite and explicit—never mincing words.

Amidst their dilemmas, Martha Perez’ engaging characters ponder

In The Dark was in one word, a SHOCKER. Martha Perez serves up a literary feast. But we advised, it’s not for the weak at heart, or the weak at anything for that matter. It’s sad. It’s scary. It’s erotic. It’s many things, but most of all it’s fun and entertaining. I don’t think I’ve ever found myself waiting with so much anticipation to get to the next page. It’s a collection of short stories, all very different but somehow connected. Five stars for sheer guts and courageous writing. I can’t ...more

This very short anthology of short stories features characters touched by, and trying to cope with the darkness that has touched their lives in some way. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, and some are simply chilling, such as "The Boathouse," where a psychiatrist takes on the horrors of a patient's life as her own. Others, such as "The Lie that Binds" contain a heavy dose of irony, as a man constantly belittled and beaten down by his wife kills her accidentally, only to end up dead himself. ...more

Sensational quick read! With a series of vignettes, the reader will become encapsulated in well-developed characters’ lives. Because of this, Perez’s skillful and artful writing transcends the reader into macabre places of humanity and to an edge of true darkness. More so, the well-written, eloquent stories allows the reader to briefly peer into another malevolent world on another dimension. What a great short story novella!

Martha Perez shines again!

As a fan of the talented author, Martha Perez, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of her latest work, ‘In The Dark’, and I was not disappointed.

This was a real page turner for me. A collection of short, dark stories filled with suspense and many unexpected twists and turns along the way. I couldn’t put it down.

Author Perez writes from the heart and ‘I Can’t Say Goodbye’ certainly brought a tear to my eye.

For me, this is a huge 5 star read.
