The highly anticipated sequel to Rage Against the Dying, featuring "one of the most memorable FBI agents since Clarice Starling."--Publishers Weekly

Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen more than her share of psychopaths. She is ready to put all that behind her, building a new life in Tucson with a husband, friends, and some nice quiet work as a private investigator.

Meanwhile, Brigid also agrees to help a local couple by investigating the death of their son--which also turns out not to be as simple as had been assumed. Her house with her husband isn't the sanctuary it used to be, and new dangers--including murder--seem to lurk everywhere. Brigid starts to wonder if there is anyone she can trust, or if the devil has simply moved closer to home.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Fear the Darkness: "No less compelling than its predecessor...Brigid Quinn remains a fun force to be reckoned with."---Boston Globe"Idiosyncratic and engaging....An action-filled finale that pulls the rug out from beneath expectations." --The Wall Street Journal"With Fear the Darkness, Masterman cements her place as a solid talent in the mystery genre."----Vancouver Sun"Electrifying...another strong display of the author's ingenuity. Ms. Masterman once again shows herself to be an expert manipulator of readers' expectations." --The New York Times"[A] superior series. . .The strong voice that Masterman established for Brigid in Rage Against the Dying excels in this sequel." --The Associated Press"Those of us who caught Quinn's excellent debut, Rage Against the Dying, knew she was far too good not to have a series and so she returns in an even better novel." --The Globe and Mail Praise for Rage Against the Dying:  "Masterman lives up to her name in this masterly combination of compelling character and plot." --Library Journal (starred)"Blown away. What else can I tell you? Brigid Quinn is a heroine to cheer for, and Masterman writes like an angel who has seen far too many ungodly things."--Linwood Barclay, author of the New York Times bestseller No Time for Goodbye"One of the most memorable FBI agents since Clarice Starling as well as a killer debut thriller."--Publishers Weekly Pick of the week (starred review)"Anyone who appreciates graceful, thoughtful, suspenseful writing will be glad to meet sexy, tough, conflicted and compassionate Brigid Quinn. When the nominations are made for the best crime-novel debut of the year, we should be hearing her name again."--Washington Post"Rage is compulsively readable, a page turner with a believable hero like none I've seen before in crime fiction. She's powerful and flawed, needy and tough at the same time. The story is bold and surprising with twists and turns I didn't see coming. The ending satisfies. And this is just Masterman's first thriller. I'll be looking forward to the next."--Boston Globe "Wow. An absolute pleasure. Chilling, smart ... and what a voice she has."--Gillian Flynn, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Gone Girl "Pulse-quickening ... scorching ... invigorating." --The New York Times"The twists are legion, the betrayals and surprises in plentiful supply, but Masterman keeps expert control of the plot as she puts character first. It's not a question of hoping we'll hear more from Masterman. It's a given, and a demand."--Maclean's "[A] smart and funny debut novel ... Brigid Quinn is a name to watch."--The Globe and Mail
