Publisher's Summary

In 1985, two 27-year-old friends left their suburban Detroit homes for a hunting trip in rural Michigan. When they did not return, their families and police suspected foul play. For 18 years, no one could prove a thing. Then, a relentless investigator got a witness to talk, and a horrifying story emerged.

In 2003, this bizarre case hit the glare of the criminal justice system, as prosecutors charged two brothers, Raymond and Donald Duvall, with murder. With no bodies ever found, the case hinged on the testimony of one terrified witness who saw a bloody scene unfold - and who was still nearly too frightened to talk.

Now, the truth behind an 18-year-old mystery is revealed against the backdrop of an unusual, electrifyingly dramatic trial. Raymond and Donald Duvall bragged to friends that they killed their victims, chopped up their bodies, and fed them to pigs. A Michigan jury soon had evidence of this brutally methodical execution - evidence that would lead a shocked courtroom through the heart of evil and beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Like listening to grass grow!

I found this book soooo slow moving. Could not concentrate on it as it moved inch by inch. It got very convoluted and every conceivable detail was regurgitated. Could not continue especially when there was no surprise as the write-up told you who was going to be arrested for the crime anyway!!

Kept me on the edge...

If you could sum up Darker Than Night in three words, what would they be?

Disturbing, intriguing, suspenseful

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bronco, a determined man with a heart of gold. Went above and beyond to gain the trust of his witnesses. Truly cared without asking anything in return.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Chills; how could 2 brothers place so little value on human lives. Disrespectful to all man (and woman) kind.

A story of perseverance

The relentless quest for justice against ignorant killers. A good parable for our time . Trump will be held accountable and the GOP. History will tell the tale We just need a Bronco.
