Detective Inspector Marnie Rome and her partner, Detective Sergeant Noah Jake, are investigating the recent discovery of two dead boys in a bunker beneath a London garden. Terry and Beth, under whose garden the bodies were discovered, have two children of their own and are also fostering a difficult boy named Clancy. Clancy reminds Marnie of her foster brother, Stephen, who murdered her parents. Is Marnie's past blinding her to the truth? Only one thing is certain: when Terry and Beth's biological children vanish, Marnie can't waste a moment finding them.

No Other Darkness is Ms. Hilary’s follow up story to her amazing debut novel Someone Else’s Skin (go read this one!!!) and boy howdy did she knock this one out of the park!!!!
No Other Darkness is filled with so many twists and turns that I worried I would never find my way out of the maze of this story. We find our self once again following DI Marnie Rome investigating the finding of two young bodies. Two young bodies that have been down in that bunker for 4-5 years. Two young bodies in the dark, in the cold and left behind.
Man, I am not even sure how to tell how much this story was disturbed me and intrigued me. I don’t want to say anything to give anything away or give you any clues. If you are a suspense fan you will love this series. I am already excited for the next DI Marnie Rome story.
Ms. Justine Eyre as always does an amazing job as her role as narrator. Ms. Eyre is one of my favorite narrators out there. I love a narrator that can make each character sound so different. It is great when you can close your eyes (but not while I am driving, which is where I do most of my listening), just listen and you know who each character is speaking before you are told.
Again, I can not wait for the next novel in this series. And yes, it will be on my pre-order audible list.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tantor Media in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
The over-done British accent nearly drove me crazy. Maybe it's the way she really speaks but I will never choose a book read by her again! It really detracted from the story, which was a good one.
