That Darkness… by Lisa Black

Maggie Gardiner is a crime scene tech in Cleveland, Ohio. Someone is killing all the hardcore criminals. Maggie sets out to find the answers. Little does she know that the killer is one of Cleveland’s finest. (this is revealed in the very beginning of the book).

This is a police and crime scene novel. The crime scene investigation was very realistic and graphic. The author herself is a crime scene technician so the details are well described.There was also some of the history of Cleveland and the Rockefeller mansion that was interesting. There really weren’t as  many twists and turns as  I  would like. Most of the story line was set at the beginning of the novel although the ending was somewhat of a surprise for me. The characters were well-developed and interesting. I would recommend this  novel for anyone that likes police/CSI type books with a gritty and unique story line. I give this novel four stars and look forward to the other books in the Gardiner and Renner series.

I received a copy of this novel via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
