Find You In The Dark Reviews
It's pretty tough to come up with a new wrinkle in the serial killer genre, but Nathan Ripley does it. Find You in the Dark pits Martin Reese, a resourceful but secretive family man who spends his spare time searching for the bodies of unfound serial killer victims, against a brilliant killer and an equally brilliant detective who's hell-bent on uncovering his past. Morally complex and breathlessly paced. Patricia Highsmith would be proud.

This sounded really interesting to me, but I just couldn't get into it. The story moved slowly, and I found the writing a bit clumsy, especially when another POV was introduced after the 40% mark.
Thanks to NetGalley for the chance to review!
Find You in The Dark is marketed for fans of Dexter. I loved the books and the show, so I couldn’t wait to pick up something similar to fill the void Dexter left. Unfortunately, comparing Find You in The Dark to Dexter is setting up too high of expectations. The main character, Martin, is not who I wanted him to be until the end of the novel.
Find You in The Dark follows multiple perspectives: Martin, Sandra, a police detective, and another perspective that is introduced about halfway through the ...more

Using old case files for reference, he looks for seemingly random or unimportant clues that police working on the cases originally missed. He keeps photos of the bodies, along with detailed records of how he uncovered them, stored in his 'scrapbook', an old computer which is hidden away in a locked drawer in his house.

Find You in the Dark is Nathan Ripley's debut novel - and if you like suspense fiction, its one you're going to want to pick up!
The premise is deliciously dark....... Martin Reese is obsessed with serial killers, specifically with the victims not found. He's been buying up police reports for many years and has managed to locate (and dig up) the bodies they couldn't find. But, he's doing all of it anonymously and taunts the cops with a tip off of each new body located. Oh, and he takes only photo ...more
Kind of dark & freaky when you realize the true premise of this book. A little slow in spots & some stuff wasn’t quite believable even stretching my imagination. But a good read.
Thanks to the publisher for this early copy.
