Taking this position meant leaving his girlfriend behind, and Ari Thor is still smarting at the way their relationship is floundering. When a young woman, half-naked, is found bleeding and near death in her backyard, he becomes quickly involved in his new community.
While he seeks the perpetrator, he suspects not everyone is telling the truth. That new community involves a local theatre group, one of whom is giving Ari Thor piano lessons. Then someone at the theatre dies, and he must ascertain if this was a tragic accident, or a case of murder. With only two other members of his police team, and his Chief intent on smoothing troubled waters, it will be left to Ari Thor to investigate on his own.
But this is even more suspenseful, as we see the action through the eyes of several of the key players at the same time. Audrey was killed in such in a bizarre fashion that is kept out of the media. Yet Corbin disavows a relationship with the dead woman, and soon Kate starts to look for evidence incriminating her cousin with the murder. This is a fascinating look at how easily people can learn not to trust their own instincts; and the devastation that comes from the fervor of others who live in their own moral universe.
Leave the lights on for this one. Please welcome Sandra de Helen, to talk about her new thriller, Till Darkness Comes , and give us an exciting and suitably creepy excerpt. This is such a terrific and totally satisfying book. A serial killer first kills a pedophile, then moves on to killing insurance executives.
Two young women who were best friends in high school get caught up in the murders.

I had been merrily writing along, working on my Shirley Combs and Dr. Mary Watson mystery series, set in modern day Portland, basing their stories on tales of Sherlock Holmes, when I was seized with a desire to go darker. Much darker. A sliver of crescent moon rises through the clouds as an unseen watcher leans near the closed window of the shed. The ramshackle building is covered with English ivy, honeysuckle, and a wild rambling rose that makes it difficult to see into the one-story woodworking shop. A Coleman lantern is the only light in the building.
Even though the sun has set, the Missouri heat is oppressive, the humidity so high the watcher is sweating. Cicadas, tree frogs, and nearby traffic provide the soundtrack. The honeysuckle scent disappeared a month before. The odors of this night are sweat, dust, and cigarette smoke. Jerry Vogelsang puffs his cigarette while sitting on a stack of burlap bags in his underwear, a can of Budweiser at his side. A small boy is in a heap on the floor, wearing only a tee shirt, his back heaving with sobs. The boy wipes his nose with the back of his hand, stands up, covering his private parts with his other hand.
Just act like you always do. All right? The boy scurries to put his clothes and shoes on, and runs out the door, letting it slam behind him. As soon as he is gone, the watcher goes to the door, opens it, steps inside, and locks it. Before Jerry can express more than surprise, the watcher crosses the room and hits him in the head with a crowbar, knocking him out.
The watcher prepares the room.
First the window is covered with a black cloth. The door is barred to make it more secure. Next the workbench is cleared to make room for Jerry. He is of average height and weight, but he is unconscious, and of no help. Using a nail gun, the watcher secures him to the table with three-quarter-inch galvanized metal strapping. Jerry is strapped at neck, biceps, wrists, waist, thighs, knees, shins, and ankles.

And one across the forehead for good measure. Jerry groans and begins to squirm.pebyfyfuqe.ga
The watcher holds up a pair of scissors where Jerry can see them. The scissors, held in hands encased in black rubber gloves, come at his face, stopping just short of his right eye. Jerry presses the back of his head into the workbench. Beads of sweat pop up on his forehead and a deep growl issues from his throat. The warm building reeks of bodily fluids.
Stay still. Be quiet now. You know we like to be quiet. Oops, you see? I did cut you, these scissors are really sharp. Both little boys and girls, right?
A real man. Maybe you need to be a bit less of a man. Maybe you need to be castrated. Hold still. Here we go. Are you numbing up yet? How about now? Hold still! As Jerry twists and turns, the metal banding loosens. At the first sound of the nails pulling from the workbench, the watcher grabs the scissors and stabs Jerry in the stomach, then again higher in the chest, and finally in the throat. The watcher gathers up all the tools, including the black cloth from the window, the bar from the door, the crowbar, the nail gun, and the leftover metal strapping.
These items go into the duffel bag they bought at the Army surplus store. With a last look around, the watcher leaves the shed, shuts the door, pulls off the rubber gloves and stows them in a pocket.
