Product Details


“Deeply plotted and complex. . . . Will have you racing to the last page.” —Michael Connelly 
“Lisa Unger is one of my favorite authors. She gets better and better with each book.” —Karin Slaughter
“Has a gripping plot, fast-paced action, and characters that seem so real they almost leap from the printed page. Darkness, My Old Friend is a great follow-up to  . . . Fragile.The Tucson Citizen

“The scariest things are what we don’t know about our neighbors and friends. . . . [An] exciting psychological thriller.” —South Florida Sun-Sentinel
“One of Unger’s best thrillers yet” —Library Journal (starred review)
“Unger has a sure touch with teenage characters and their parents, exploring the sometimes painful territory without falling back on stereotypes. She also shines a light on marital bonds, some strong, some broken, some unhealthy. . . . Unger gives us one other important element: characters to root for as well as against.” —The Charlotte Observer
“Reading Darkness, My Old Friend is a bit like moving to a small town such as The Hollows. First you get to know the locals, slowly but surely, and then once you’re familiar, you start to notice the oddities and peculiarities of the place, wondering what secrets it’s hiding.” —Bookreporter
“Good reading, canny characterizations.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer
“[A] gripping psychological thriller . . . as much about uncovering the past as it is about accepting the future.” —Publishers Weekly
“This is a magnificent, well told story, full of revelations about human nature.”  —Javier Sierra, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Angel
“The beauty of this unconventional crime novel is that focus is not on whodunit but the darkness that drives us.” —Family Circle
