(46) Into the Dark

Title: Into the Dark: A Novel of Suspense (Brenna Spector Novel) by Alison Gaylin
Publisher: Harper Collins
384 pages
Genre: Suspense, Mystery

Synopsis: Can a stranger share your memories?
That's the question that haunts Brenna Spector when she first sees footage of missing webcam performer Lula Belle. Naked but hidden in shadow, the "performance artist" shares her deepest, darkest secrets with her unseen male audience . . . secrets that, to Brenna, are chillingly familiar.

Brenna has perfect memory, able to recall in astonishing detail every moment of every day of her adult life. But her childhood—those carefree years before the traumatic disappearance of her sister, Clea—is frustratingly vague. When Brenna listens to the stories Lula Belle tells her audience, stories only Brenna and Clea could know, those years come to life again in vivid detail. Convinced the missing internet performer has ties to her sister, Brenna takes the case—and in her quest for Lula Belle unravels a web of obsession, sex, guilt, and murder that could regain her family . . . or cost her life

Review: This is the second book in the Brenna Spector series and I found this one more enjoyable than the first.  Maybe because I knew the characters or maybe because it just creeped me out.  Who is this mysterious shadow of a girl and why does she have Brenna's memories? Could it be her missing sister Clea? You sort of get answers at the end but yet you are still left with lots of questions as well.

I would not consider this great literature or anything like that but it is a good story that keeps you guessing, keeps things moving and keeps you entertained.
