I loved this book! Unexpected twists and turns, and terrific character development - I liked almost every character even with their flaws. Very hard to put down.

Can’t wait for another by this author. Well-done!

Eccentric, reclusive Walter Rennert lies cold at the bottom of his stairs. At first glance the scene looks straightforward: a once-respected psychology professor done in by booze and a bad heart. But his daughter, Tatiana, insists that her father has been murdered, and she persuades Clay Edison to take a closer look at the grim facts of Rennert's life. What emerges is a history of scandal and violence and an experiment gone horribly wrong that ended in the brutal murder of a coed.

...but the wry writing had me laughing out loud at times. A well-written, engaging story kept my interest, and the narration was terrific, too.

Quitting her job as a high school science teacher to join the Seattle Police Department was an easy decision for Tracy Crosswhite. Years earlier, what should have been one of the happiest days of her life instead became her worst nightmare when her younger sister, Sarah, disappeared. After the murder trial, while her family disintegrated, Tracy turned her heartbreak and her lingering questions into a passion for justice.

This was so engaging that I didn't want it to end. I wanted to get to know each of the characters more. This could be a great series of books...

If you could sum up Deep, Dark in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, fast-paced, fantastical.

If you’ve listened to books by Jonathan Maberry before, how does this one compare?

I'm not a science fiction fan, but Mr. Maberry hooked me in on this story.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the suspenseful set-up - you don't know what they're going to find when they are descending an elevator deep into the earth - but you know it's terrifying.
