The Dark Corners of the Night elbows its way into those tiny crevices in your mind that are sacred. Those little niches that you scurry into when life stomps boldly on the fringes of your delicate soul. So much like hidin' under the covers during a violent thunderstorm or zoomin' under the whole damn bed when it just gets deafening and loud enough to break the sound barrier. Only there's no place to hide in this one. No place at all.

This novel deals with the horrific theme of juvenile psychopathology. It is a disturbing yet real phenomenon afflicting “normal” families. Due to the weighted content, it is a dark read. However, it is enlightening. And it is important to get a glimpse of the conflicts imposed on law enforcement personnel when confronted with youthful offenders. The nature verses nurture issue is addressed and explained very well. I appreciated ...more

4.5 stars, rounded. The Unsub series is just so dark and intriguing, and while The Dark Corners of the Night is a little different than its predecessors, it keeps the series moving and is a definite thrill ride in its own right. Whereas in the previous books the danger felt a lot closer to Caitlin, this one features a terrifying serial killer targeting families, killing the parents and leaving the children as ...more
I loved the first two books and felt the same about this one. The first book, Unsub was inspired by the Zodiac Killer. The second book, Into the Black Nowhere, was inspired by Ted Bundy. ...more
FBI Agent Caitlin Hendrix and her BAU colleagues come to LA to profile the suspect and help the LAPD track him. But how many people will die before they catch him?
The Dark Corners of the Night is fast-paced and well-written. It reads at times, however, more like a screenplay than a novel. The car chases and racing around after the ...more
This is the third book in the Unsub series and while it could be read alone, I highly recommend reading all 3 - they build on each other and you will fly through them and want the next immediately.
The series follows Caitlin - a law enforcement officer as she is involved with a different case in each book but also with a storyline that ...more
This is part of a series but could easily be read as a stand alone. It is full of non stop page turning suspense. There is a twist at the end that came out of the blue. I ...more
Wow, what a book. It is the first week of 2020 and I believe I have read the best book of the year. Three books in in the Unsub series and each book has gotten better. My favorite author and the reason I became a reader is Michael Connelly. I can easily and honestly say Meg Gardiner is on his level with this series. I highly recommend.
