  • Something So Dark

  • A captivating LA-set thriller with an unlikely female duo at its heart. From the award-winning co-author of James Patterson's No. 1 bestselling Harriet Blue series.

    Detective Jessica Farnham loves the cases no one else can solve. But after ten years on the job her relationship with the LAPD is on the rocks, and she is forced to take stress leave and move to the home turf of a husband-killer she put away nine years ago.

    Disgraced doctor Bugs Hawthorn pleaded guilty to bludgeoning her husband to death with a brass bunny statue. She has spent years living life as a felon and trying to get custody of the son she never knew. When Bugs discovers Jessica sharing a fence with the in-laws taking care of her child, Jessica is surprised to be met with a plea – to finally crack the case of a missing prostitute.

    For Jessica, helping Bugs and her ex-con buddies will mean taking a tour behind enemy lines. But she goes where victims need her most - and she will soon begin to wonder if the villains she’s associating with might just be safer than those behind the badge…
