I purchased a copy of this book from Amazon.

Book Blurb (via Goodreads):

A socially awkward mall cop forges an unlikely alliance with a teenage delinquent as a last resort in his desperate search for a kidnapped young woman. The pair must venture onto an eerie abandoned psychiatric hospital campus in pursuit of her captors, battling the darkness of the night and their own demons in an attempt to save the woman before it is too late.

My Thoughts

Into the Darkness is a short read and I think that does the story a favour. The investigative work of Duncan the mall cop and Calvin the teenaged delinquent is impressive and intriguing, but does seem too easy for such inexperienced people.

The story is fast paced and flows nicely, but there were too many typo errors for my liking (usually these things don’t bother me too much, but for a finished, published piece, it was distracting).

I’d recommend this if you’re looking for a quick read and like Crime fiction.
