Only a handful of people know that Nash is still alive - and fellow Troubleshooters Dave Malkoff, Sophia Ghaffari, and receptionist Tracy Shapiro aren't among them. Believing that Nash is dead and that Decker has begun a romantic relationship with Tess, Sophia settles for second best and begins a love affair with Dave, who has adored her for years. But Tracy puts two and two together, discovering the truth about Nash - much to Decker's dismay.
As passions flare, Decker struggles to keep his scheme afloat, and to keep Nash alive. But when he finds himself targeted for death, the game turns even more perilous, and Sophia, Tracy, and Dave are swept into the deadly play. Under fire and racing to unmask their relentless adversary, the Troubleshooters know that the closer they get, the greater the risks. But sacrifices and consequences come with the territory. Forced to choose between love and loyalty, they are no longer just solving a crime - they're fighting for survival.

Wow! The major complaint of a reviewer before me happened to be my personal favorite theme in the book. Don't let it put you off, you may love it! It was really funny, riveting and filled with tension. Wow! This was definitely my favorite of all the Troubleshooters books so far. It would help if you have read at least Flashpoint and perhaps Into the Storm before this book in order to best appreciate the truly elegant twists in the romantic story arcs. Brockmann gives us enough backstory to fill in the blanks, but nothing can really compare to understanding the characters the way you do if you get to know them over several books. Not to mention the fact that all the books in the series are great. Dark of Night is the only one of the Troubleshooters series that I have given a five star rating to, however and I believe only one of two that have a five star rating from me out of something like 200 audible titles listened to and rated. Masterful storytelling!
I'm a huge fan of Suzanne Brockmann. I love her characters and enjoy following their lives from book to book. Each story stands alone but is enriched by reading the other stories.
I think Renee Laudmann has an irritating little-girl voice which spoils the story. I doubt I'll buy another audio book if she is the reader. I think I'd rather read it myself.
The story itself gets a five rating. The reader a zero.
We all know that Brockmanns books are not what they used to be, but I really enjoyed this one! There were two story lines running side by side in this book, easier to follow than the last couple. I loved the dynamics between Deck and Tracy and got more than one look from people as I burst out laughing while out walking my dogs (thats when I listen to my books). I really needed a distraction after the death of my niece and found this book to be a very welcomed escape! I would recomend this book, but if you are not familar with Brockmann you should really start with book 1.
BROCKMANN IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS, I AM ESPECIALLY FOND OF THIS SERIES. LAWLOR & RAUDMAN ARE EXCELLENT NARRATORS.
DARK OF NIGHT WEAVES A TALE OF INTRIGUE. YOU GET A BIG DOSE OF SOME MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS IN THE SERIES.
THE CONTENT IS FOR ADULTS ONLY.
Lover of good ideas
While the intimate relations between characters is important the amount and repetitiveness of the sexual encounters got in the way of an otherwise good story. In addition, the author wrote these sexual encounters as one dimensional. It did create genuine sexual encounters. It was at the level of adolesent sex.
I didn't want to stop listening. I actually laughed out loud a few times. I felt each charater. Can't wait for the next one.
A great plot spoiled by the author's piling on of page after page of touchy-feely dialogue and ridiculously PC characters such as a gay married pair of body guards and love-struck hit men. It could have been one third shorter. In printed form you could more easily skip over the glop.
I found this book to be more about sex than than action. It borders on porn. The very descriptive sexual encounters consume most of the dialog. I rolled my eyes many times thinking the story should move faster.
This was the first audiobook by Suzanne Brockmann that I've ever purchased, and I've listened to a LOT of books on tape. I can't imagine that listening to the author's other reads would have helped me to enjoy this book. The entire story was littered with too many awkward, crude sex scenes with uncomfortable, unbelievable dialogue . . . usually at times that were ostensibly life or death for the characters. After seventeen hours of this, my husband and I were rolling our eyes and ready to be finished with the darn thing.
