Publisher's Summary

What would you do if your best friend disappeared?

Talented but unstable photographer Day Randall has been living rent-free in Kelly Durrell's Colorado condo for eight months. Day needs someone to keep an eye on her. Kelly needs someone to draw her out of her stable but not spectacular life. The arrangement works for both of them.

Then Kelly comes home one day to find Day gone. There's no note, no phone call. Day's car is still parked out front, but her room is starkly, suspiciously spotless.

No one seems to care. The police certainly aren't interested in a missing bipolar artist, but Kelly knows something is wrong. Day wouldn't just leave.

Alone, Kelly traces Day's last steps through shadowy back rooms of Boulder nightclubs and to a remote mountain estate, where the wealthy protect themselves behind electric fences and armed guards. Along the way, she uncovers a sinister underworld lying just below the mountain snow, and a group of powerful people who will do anything to protect the secrets hidden in Day's enigmatic photographs.

If she trusts the wrong person, Kelly herself will be the next to disappear.

If you like suspenseful thrillers with unexpected plot twists, a strong sense of place, and characters that one describes as "so well-drawn you'd swear they were relatives," you'll love Mary Maddox's dark, compelling novel.

Download your copy and join Kelly on her dangerous quest to uncover the truth.

great mystery, suspense-filled!

Darkroom
By: Mary Maddox
Narrated by: Allison Pistorius
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I enjoyed this very suspense-filled mystery. The suspense should be capitalized! There is a lot of bad guys and they just keep popping up when you least expect them. There are twists and turns and many close calls. There characters needs a bit more development, they are a bit flat. I really enjoyed the plot.
The narrator was right on the money! She had many tough guy voices and did them flawless! She kept them so I could tell them apart and was consistent during the whole story. Wonderful job!

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS

This book kept me on pins and needles all the way through. It really grabs you and sucks you right in from the beginning. Poor Day seemed so go with the flow happy go lucky with no sense of self preservation. Her friend Kelly was the only person who seemed to care enough to know something happened to her and that she didn’t just run off. Kelly really risked her life on more than one occasion for justice for her. I loved the cop, Cash. I would like to see a future book of them hooking up as a couple. There was a good ending and no cliff hangers but I feel like there’s more I would like to see happen to some of the bad guys. Turns out that things were bigger than they seemed on the surface and a whole lot more shady dealings going on. Day and her photos just skimmed the surface. I couldn’t help but feel for a few of the bad guys because they didn’t start out intending to make bad decisions. They just got involved with the wrong people and in over their heads. In the end, it was too late. It was survival of the fittest. Kind of like the mafia. I wish I could say more but I don’t want to spoil it.

Whether reading or choosing the audiobook, you can’t go wrong. I will say the narrator really brings the story alive. She adds that extra note of suspense. I loved it. I can’t wait to listen/ read more of this author’s work.

A suspensful and thrilling story

The story is truly entertaining and well-plotted, and the characters are likeable and grab you from the beginning.

The reading is great, and you'll find yourself unwilling to hit pause.

A credit well invested.
