    "Great Twist"

    I truly enjoyed this book. It's the first book I've listened to from this author and it had a great ending. Kept me guessing till the end.

    "Highly Reccommend"

    This was my first read of a John Lutz Book. I mainly ordered it because of Scott Brick. I was not disappointed by either. I did not figure it out until the very end although there was quite a bit of misdirection on the author’s part. Anyway, I will continue listen to Lutz and definitely continue to listen to Scott Brick.

    "Surprisingly entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if you like suspense and police procedurals that offer a twist than this is a great choice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twist at the end.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick is one of the best out there and I would highly recommend any book that he reads.

    "Great work!!!"

    This was a very good book in my opinion and Brick did a fantastic job, as always. I especially liked Quinn and his team. I found myself rooting for them, especially Quinn, the lead character. Ending was a shocker too.

    "A good listen"

    This was my first book by this author and i enjoyed it. I generally read crime fiction and this was entertaining. Good characters and plot etc. There were a couple week points here and there where i didn't quite buy the circumstances (one in particular near the end) but on the whole, i liked this story. The narration was good too.

    "Too much"

    I very much enjoy modern detective novels. I enjoy listening to Scott Brick as the narrator of many of the books available on Audible. This is the first time in probably 200 books that I've enjoyed that I turned it off within the first hour of the book. Too graphic of sex, murder, thoughts of the characters, etc. In my opinion it was too much.

    "Love the Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved the twist at the end! I had no idea that was the killer...good drama, characters and twist. And Scott Brick makes all the characters come alive. He is my absolute favorite narrator. Will definitely finish this series!

    "I was disappointed"
    What would have made Darker Than Night better?

    too repetitive not well organized


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    Normal scott brick


    What character would you cut from Darker Than Night?

    several. How many times do we have to read about the same murder in gory detail to understand it is a serial killer?

    "Poor Quinn - an uphill battle - I loved it"

    Lutz is one of my favorites and I love the Frank Quinn series. Quinn battles several issues in this one up to the end. Lose love, find love, lose love, find love. Detested by an unfounded charge of rape, more under-current. Not to mention the case at hand. Definitely worth the listen!
