Publisher's Summary

A forensic psychologist fights a mental war against two serial killers in this disturbing thriller from Mike Omer, Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author of A Killer’s Mind.

An online video of a girl clawing at the ceiling of her own grave could be the worst thing FBI forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley has ever seen. Perhaps even more disturbing is the implication of the video’s title: “Experiment Number One.” 

Zoe and her partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray, work as fast as they can to find the monster behind the shocking video, but soon another one shows up online, and another girl turns up dead. Meanwhile, a different murderer is on Zoe’s mind. Rod Glover has been tormenting her since childhood, and his latest attack is a threatening photo of himself with Zoe’s sister. As Glover’s threats creep toward action, Zoe’s torn between family and duty. 

Zoe must think fast to prevent another murder. With her own family’s safety on the line, Zoe feels she’s never been in more danger. And while she’s always known her job could send her to an early grave, she always assumed she’d be dead first.

Outstanding novel with fantastic narration!

There are many novels narrated by Brittany Pressley in my Audible library. All of her narrations are good, but she really excels with IN THE DARKNESS. I'm a fan of author Mike Omer and all of his audio books are in my Audible library. IN THE DARKNESS is yet another 5 star thriller.

Excellent!!! Excellent!! Excellent!!!!

Holy cow!! This, the second in the series, is even better than the first. It's intense - I had to pause and take some deep breaths during the claustrophobic moments, but hurried back because the suspense was killing me!! Zoe and Tatum are such superb characters, and I just can't say enough about Omer's writing ability. Wow!!! Scattered throughout are a few perfectly placed snippets of humorous relief, provided by Marvin - and the poor hiccuping guy. I'm proud to say that I had most of it solved, but there were still some crazy twists. Brittany Pressley, as always, is amazing, and I wouldn't want anyone but her telling me these stories. (I wish she narrated his other books. I tried his other series, but hated the narration.) Can't wait for the next one!!!

Fantastic narration. Fantastic book.

Brittany Pressley is one of the most gifted narrators I’ve heard in a long while. Her depiction of Marvin keeps me in stitches long after the scenes are over. Kudos to Mike Omer for another great Bentley book. Love the characters, the storyline, the writing. Great stuff all the way around. Highly recommend.

Girls Just Want to Have Fun!<br />

I don't know where to start. Except to ask if I could get Marvins phone number? Please tell me this is the not precursor to the last of Zoe, Tatum, Andrea and least of all Marvin. Not to mention Freckle and that bastard Timothy. This one REALLY had me awake all night. Started it at bedtime, Big mistake. I drifted once but rewound and freaked myself out all over again. I unfortunately have a serious fear of dark places and discovered during the attempt at an MRI, key word Attempt, that I was also highly claustrophobic as well. In the Darkness pushed all my psychological aingst buttons. Loved it, scared the... well you can profile what it scared out of me. Great sequel to A Killers Mind, ravenously awaiting the next chapter. Brittany Pressley is an incredibly talented narrator, her voice brought each character to life sending chills and laughter accordingly. Mike Omer is an outstanding writer. His mix of tension and comic relief wonderfully spread throughout. Please bring us claustrophobic night owls more of your twists and freaks. I enjoyed every second and now I'm going to play it again on my television app. In the light of day. I can't recommend this audiobook strongly enough. JPW

Just Amazing

This book, like the last, is a page-turner. Mike Omar is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. we pick up where we left off in the first book. with trying to catch Rod Glover and Andrea's personal problems with him. Throw in a serial killer on the loose in Texas and you have a terrific book. There were a few I needed details but nothing that made me want to read the book less. I just can't wait for the next one
