Description

It's hard to recognize the devil when his hand is on your shoulder. That's because a psychopath is just a person before he becomes a headline....Psychopaths have preferences for Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts coffee, denim or linen, Dickens or...well, you get the point.
Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen more than her share of psychopaths. She is ready to put all that behind her, building a new life in Tucson with a husband, friends, and some nice quiet work as a private investigator. Sure, she could still kill a man half her age, but she now gets her martial arts practice by teaching self-defense at a women's shelter.
But sometimes it isn't that simple. When her sister-in-law dies, Brigid take in her seventeen-year-old niece, Gemma Kate. There has always been something unsettling about Gemma-Kate, but family is family. Which is fine, until Gemma-Kate starts taking an unhealthy interest in dissecting the local wildlife.
Meanwhile, Brigid agrees to help a local couple by investigating the death of their son—which also turns out not to be that simple. Her house isn't the sanctuary it used to be, and new dangers—including murder—seem to lurk everywhere. Brigid starts to wonder if there is anyone she can trust, or if the devil has simply moved closer to home.
Becky Masterman's Fear the Darkness is the masterful follow-up to the Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Rage Against the Dying.

        November 17, 2014
        For someone who still conducts threat assessments at functions as seemingly innocuous as a Tucson, Ariz., humane society fundraiser, retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn has gone dangerously soft in other respects—as she discovers when it’s almost too late in Edgar-finalist Masterman’s disappointingly wan follow-up to her electrifying 2013 debut, Rage Against the Dying. Then again, it’s tough for Brigid to be at the top of her game once she begins to experience increasingly alarming symptoms, including chronic nausea, anxiety, and hallucinations, after her teenage niece, Gemma-Kate, whose mother has recently died of MS, moves in with her and husband Carlo to establish in-state residency for the University of Arizona. Given the timing, as well as the girl’s glaring lack of empathy but keen interest in toxicology, Brigid starts wondering whether she’s let a psychopath into her little slice of long-overdue domestic bliss. Overly talky with too many heavy-handed efforts at misdirection, this novel lets down both Masterman’s kick-ass heroine and her many fans. Agent: Helen Heller, Helen Heller Agency.

      • content: Masterman's thriller continues the story of retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn. While narrator Suzanne Toren provides a convincing persona for the senior protagonist and even more so her good friend, Mallory, she seems to lack enough range to voice plausible characterizations for many of the other characters. Several teenagers feature in the plot, and all the roles blend vocally together in this production, which can be confusing. Where Quinn's niece loses the innocent tone to her speech, no such change occurs in Toren's presentation of the character. Furthermore, her overall pace is tediously slow and the climax underwhelming for a thriller, so listeners desiring plenty of action may want to pass on this audiobook.

        In this follow-up to the Edgar Award-winning Rage Against the Dying, Masterman brings retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn into a more domestic investigation. Brigid's sister has just died after a long struggle with MS, and Brigid and husband Carlo agree to allow her niece to live in their home for a few months prior to attending college. Shortly after the niece's arrival, however, things on the home front begin to go awry--from the poisoning of one of Brigid's pugs to a mass poisoning at her church. Brigid's own strange symptoms (agitation, trouble walking, and hallucinations) lead her to wonder if she is being poisoned herself, and if the possible culprit might be her difficult niece, or if her investigation of the perhaps-not-entirely-accidental drowning death of a teenage boy might be causing some discomfort. While the core mystery is a little far-fetched, Suzanne Toren does a great job of voicing Brigid. Listeners really get a sense of her personality, the slight Southern twang, and the wry humor, and Toren's voice hits the age of the character (late 50s) spot-on. VERDICT Great narration enlivens this slower-moving sophomore effort from Masterson. ["We can only hope the old Brigid will be revived in time for the next episode": LJ 12/14 review of the Minotaur hc.]--Victoria A. Caplinger, NoveList, Durham, NC
