    Deputy US Marshall Cady Maddix is back, diving into a twisted investigation while still battling dark memories from her childhood.

    I love this author and how she weaves a story. And this one did not disappoint.

    I am looking forward to more of her & Sheriff Ryder Talbot too. I love his patience and tenacity when it comes to Cady. Her scars are deep and her baggage heavy!

    Bring on more!!!

    Deputy US Marshal Cady Maddix is back and the latest case she is assigned has her sympathizing with the teenage victim as they both lived through traumatic childhoods.

    You certainly felt sorry for what Dylan had gone through. The trauma he experienced years ago that left his best friend dead and a killer still on the loose that has had him and his mother and brother constantly moving from town to town after killings of young men who looked like him has him on the edge of sanity. Things only get

    I thought Cold Dark Places by Kylie Brant was amazing, but this, this was phenomenal. I was still left with some unanswered questions at the end of the book, but overall, I loved it! I would recommend this to everyone! You don’t necessarily have to read the first one in order to read this, which I really liked. This book kept you guessing constantly what was going to happen next or who did what and it made me crazy! In a good way, of course! I could not put this book down. It was so great and I ...more

    This is the second book in the Candy Maddix series. She is a Deputy US Marshal. Her traumatic childhood still effects her to this day. She does have a love interest in Sheriff Ryder Talbot but she is afraid for any commitment.
    Dylan whitenesses a horrific act when he is a child. The drug dealer has been after him since then. He and his family have been on the run since then. There are lots of lies and betrayal on all sides. The ending is shocking and I felt so bad for Dylan when he finally

    The second installment of this series is even better than the first. There is more character development with both Cady and Ryder. The plot is full of suspense and action. There were shocking turns towards the end I never saw coming. The fact that Cady is part of the USMS makes for a unique and intriguing story. It's a nice change of pace from the typical detective book. I look forward to the next book.

    Down The Darkest Road is book 2 in the Cady Maddix series. I liked both book 1 and 2. Hopefully there will be a number 3. Federal Marshall Cady Maddix has her own past to overcome as well as killers to catch. Her story continues throughout the series.
    Thank you to netgalley, the author and publisher for the arc.

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is well written with interesting characters but it just didn't have the "umph" I feel with an outstanding book. I'm sure there are others who will greatly enjoy it. ...more

    Another book that I had to read straight through. I could not put it down. I love Kylie Brant's writing style and how she pulls you into the story. Poor Dylan has spent his childhood running from a killer and you can not help but feel sorry for all he has been through

    This is a police procedural AND a psychological thriller. Great plot and story, and even better characters. Excellent, very well written book.
