Darkness, My Old Friend


Lisa Unger

Darkness, My Old Friend, features another teenage girl at the centre of the story.  Fifteen year old Willow and her mother have moved to The Hollows.  Willow is short on friends with her best/main/only friend not all that interested in attending school or authority figures.  In fact her bestie’s attitude does not help Willow who is a rebellious teenager wanting to be back home in Manhattan.

The story revolves around solving the disappearance of a local woman, without a trace, nearly twenty years earlier and which has now become a very old case.

Willow; a retired policeman (who is doing odds jobs for neighbours); a women who has acquired physic powers after an accident; some psychological domestic abuse in another family; and a son wanting to know why his mother left him all those years ago gives you an idea of the plot.

As in any good story all character are intertwined with each other’s lives; both then and now.  As usual, I will not give away any more of the plot than I need to.  Darkness, My Old Friend is well worth reading if you enjoy this genre of novels.

I think Darkness My Old Friend just manages a four star rating.
