Summary

In this gripping new series by New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Eden, a disgraced FBI profiler must save her reputation by stopping a sadistic killer she knows all too well.

Former FBI agent Samantha Dark was one of the most respected profilers in the bureau, an expert on the twisted minds and dark hearts of the most depraved criminals. But when her own former lover turned out to be the serial killer she was hunting, Samantha's career was destroyed. Blamed for the FBI's failure on the complex case, Samantha left Washington, DC, for the quiet anonymity of Alabama.

Now an all-too-familiar killer is hunting once again. She can catch the cunning assassin, but that means putting her trust in her former partner, Blake Gamble. Ex-military, Blake is tough, protective, and precise. With her entire life on the brink, she knows he wants her back in the FBI...and possibly more.

But someone else wants her, too. A threat is waiting in the dark, a killer who has set his sights on the ultimate trophy victim - Samantha.

Twisted FBI Thriller!

Talk about a twisted FBI thriller! Profiler Samantha Dark is suspended after a serial killer who just happens to be her ex-lover escapes capture. With her tail between her legs she runs away to her hometown in Alabama and after a time her former partner and want-to-be lover Blake Gamble comes calling when the murders start again.

The best way I can describe this is that is a love triangle between Samantha, Blake and the psychopathic killer, Cameron. It’s been a while since I’ve read any of Eden’s other books, but this seemed quite different to me. It wasn’t a bad read and the suspense was well written. However, the love story between Samantha and Blake seemed a little forced to me. They worked together as partners for quite some time and never acted on their feelings, yet we must believe they knew and accepted their feelings for each other.

In the meantime, crazy serial killer Cameron was out wreaking havoc because Samantha stopped being intimate with him and he knew it was because she had feelings for Blake. If you know anything about psychopathic killers, they don’t tend to have any real feelings for anyone. He is creepy, despicable, and evil. I don’t want to go further into the story as to not spoil it for anyone, but of course, these three are going to crash into each other at some point.

I really wavered on how to rate this story. I listened to this on Audible. I tried to decide if reading a physical copy might have been better as it sometimes is. Points in favor are that I do want to continue with the series. Also, the narrator Summer Norton did an excellent job with all the characters. In the end I gave it 3 ½ stars rounding up to 4.

Great book

Would you listen to After the Dark again? Why?

Maybe after a while when forget story a little. Too fresh in my mind right now

What was one of the most memorable moments of After the Dark?

Interesting how the killer felt for female main character

What does Summer Morton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Very good with voices and emotions....prefer when there is a male and female narrator but she did a very nice job...almost didn't notice there was no male narrator

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it kept me very interested to know what was going to happen next. Not totally predictable

Any additional comments?

Loved the book can't wait for the next in this series. Love her LOST series too
