Praise

“Laura McHugh is already on everyone’s short list of crime writers to watch for, someone who just goes from strength to strength. What’s Done in Darkness is timely, but more important, it’s a deeply empathetic look at a community and place that are all too easy to stereotype. Compulsively, propulsively readable, it never loses sight of what’s really at stake for its characters—or its readers.”—Laura Lippman, bestselling author of Lady in the Lake

What’s Done in Darkness is a beautifully paced story of a young woman’s courage to confront, both psychologically and by novel’s end literally, an evil that might again entrap her.”—Ron Rash, bestselling author of Serena

“It’s hard to find a truly original thriller these days, one that’s populated with unique characters and a plot that feels fresh. But with What’s Done in Darkness, Laura McHugh has managed a new spin on the genre. From the suffocating isolation of a religious cult to the twisted loyalties of family, this page-turner takes readers on a journey into the dark heart of the Ozarks. A riveting, poignant, and propulsive read.”—Amy Engel, bestselling author of The Familiar Dark

“In her latest spine-chilling thriller, McHugh weaves a dark and delicious spell. Seamless, expressive writing, a voice like a crystal clear lake, an intimate sense of place, and storytelling that keeps the pages spinning make this a thriller that should be at the top of everyone’s summer reading list.”—Julia Heaberlin, internationally bestselling author of We Are All the Same in the Dark 

“Once again, Laura McHugh has written a gorgeously evocative and perfectly plotted rural thriller you’ll devour in one gulp or die trying. Thoughtful, compelling, and steeped in the secrets of its backwoods setting, What’s Done in Darkness is a cry for justice for the girls and women lost on the shadowy, ultrareligious fringes of the homeschooling movement. With every dark, unsettling twist, it becomes more and more apparent: The Ozarks belong to Laura McHugh.”—Amy Gentry, bestselling author of Good as Gone and Bad Habits

“It’s no secret that I love Laura’s writing and have devoured each of her novels since I got my hands on The Weight of Blood, and with What’s Done in Darkness it was no different. This is one heck of a spine-tingler, and Laura’s combination of seamless prose, beautifully drawn characters, atmospheric settings, and plot twists to keep you guessing—not to mention reading—is sure to be another stellar hit. If this one isn’t on your Thriller Reads Radar, it should be!”—Hannah Mary McKinnon, bestselling author of Sister Dear and You Will Remember Me
