Richard McMann hangs by his arms from the rafters of Red Curtain Club- naked. His ankles are bound together and his throat is cut in what appears to be a gruesome still-life tribute to Christ’s crucifixion. There is no blood in spite of the gaping wound to his throat and his entire body is covered by what looks like a fine white powder. The salt granules scattered on the dance floor beneath his feet and the fact that his body faces due east, make his murder different yet similar to the death days earlier in a club a few blocks away.
South Dallas police detective, Olivia Gates and criminal psychologist, Dr. Will Green, engage in a game of wits with a serial killer who haunts the nightclubs of Deep Ellum, leaving behind ritualistic sacrifices of those people he believes deserving of the act. Is he a raging psychopath, killing just to kill, or is there method behind his madness?
There are some books in this world which are extremely difficult to review upon or comment upon . " Darkness knows me " is in that list . It leaves you speechless . But still upon trying hard , I'm able to write sometihing about it . This is the story which is fictional yet real, unimaginable yet in very sense imaginable . It is knit so well that one feels as if it is happening for real in front of you .
The story and the characters are well introduced abd described. The protagonist is a person who constantly surprises you and learned something new about them in every few pages.
The story is very well versed and researched. The ending though is very interesting but very abruptly ended.
This book has definately found a place in my bookself.
To say something about the book in one word i would say " SENSATIONAL"
And I would rate the book with "4 stars"
