Find You In The Dark by Nathan Ripley

3.5 Stars

First – lets talk about the blurb I just noticed . . . .

Perfect for fans of Caroline Kepnes’s Hidden Bodies

So if a title is “hidden bodies” and another book is about hidden bodies they are the same?????

Obviously the person who wrote that has never read Caroline Kepnes.

As for the second comparison to everyone’s favorite serial killer?????

That’s a little more feasible (but I’d actually recommend HANGMAN instead should you be looking to fill the void the lack of Dexter has left in your life . . . if I ever get around to reviewing that one).

This is a book for those of you looking for pure stabby good times. There’s absolutely ZERO reality involved as the story focuses on Martin – a smarter than smart smartypants who buys the files of serial killers from a dirty cop and then uses his super tingly spidey senses to find any missing bodies – all while hiding this strange hobby from his family, natch. You know what that means, right??? Of course a real bad baddy is going to get fed up with the spotlight not being on what a good murderer he is and set Martin up to potentially take the fall.

Recommended to anyone whose browser history looks like mine . . . .
