BOOK REVIEW: In the Dark
by Loreth Anne White
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
A secluded mountain lodge. The perfect getaway. So remote no one will ever find you.
The promise of a luxury vacation at a secluded wilderness spa has brought together eight lucky guests. But nothing is what they were led to believe. As a fierce storm barrels down and all contact with the outside is cut off, the guests fear that it’s not a getaway. It’s a trap.
Each one has a secret. Each one has something to hide. And now, as darkness closes in, they all have something to fear—including one another.
Alerted to the vanished party of strangers, homicide cop Mason Deniaud and search and rescue expert Callie Sutton must brave the brutal elements of the mountains to find them. But even Mason and Callie have no idea how precious time is. Because the clock is ticking, and one by one, the guests of Forest Shadow Lodge are being hunted. For them, surviving becomes part of a diabolical game.

I discovered In the Dark on a list (somewhere) of best thriller audiobooks. I tend to enjoy thrillers, so I thought I’d give it a chance.
The story is definitely interesting and suspenseful. It’s based on a poem from an Agatha Christie book (And Then There Were None) which predicts the deaths of all the guests who are together on a luxury vacation. We discover that all the guests are tied together in some way, and we learn more about their connection as the story unfolds.
I listened to the audiobook, which I almost had to give up on because the narrator pronounced a couple of words so oddly it was
annoying distracting. But I pushed through and finished it.
If you enjoy thrillers, you’ll probably like this book, although I’d recommend reading the physical version or ebook rather than listening to the audiobook.
