Special Agent Smoky Barrett has been to hell and back - her husband and child were murdered years ago - and now a serial killer who calls himself The Preacher wants to teach her a lesson about divinity.

A high-profile politician's daughter is killed mid-flight on her way to Washington, DC, and the only clue is a silver cross that has been left in her side. Smoky and her team of agents begin a chase that leads them across the country and into the twisted mind of one of the most prolific serial killers ever seen.

This time he's put his crimes on display for everyone to see - he's asking to be caught, but only by someone clever enough to catch all of his clues. And for Smoky, the clock is ticking. Download and start listening now!

    " The protagonist has had a tragic life, and, as an FBI agent, she continues to see the very worst side of humanity. The novel, however, is not bleak. There are moments of laughter and sentiment. Why, there is even a vein of moral argument at the heart of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 12/24/2013

    " Enjoyed this, quick pace to the story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 11/30/2013

    " There are horrible, disturbing things in this book. It is not a book for the faint-hearted. I loved it. And, as usual, McFadyen is a writer's writer - he uses language so gorgeously. A beautiful, horrific, heart-breaking book that I only rated down to four stars because I didn't like the plot *as much* as I did his previous book - and I'm pretty sure he's incorrect about how strictly priests keep criminal confessions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 11/20/2013

    " I'm halfway through and will finish it by tomorrow, gotta know who did it and why, you know??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 10/18/2013

    " I absolutely liked this book! But... I've read the first 2 parts of the Smoky Barrett-series just last week. Maybe that's why it all seemed a bit too much to me. That's why I gave the book 3 stars, though that may not be quite fair. I'm going to wait a while before I read the 4th book! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammie | 9/2/2013

    " Not as good as the first two but still a great read and excellent story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ReneeB | 2/3/2013

    " I can't seem to put these books down. They are so engrossing. He's one of my favorite writers. Can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 7/14/2012

    " Great suspense thriller! I really like McFayden's Smokey Barrett series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Claudia | 6/3/2012

    " Didn't finish. Too graphic? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nelson Mays | 2/23/2012

    " Great read! Can't wait to read another from Cody McFadyen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harriet | 2/5/2012

    " Terrific thriller. Not for the faint at heart. This is a thriller/murder/mystery book. I could not put it down! I cannot wait to read more of his books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl | 11/1/2011

    " the good guys are awfully idiosyncratically good, but my, the pages turn quickly. it makes me wonder if the author could dispense with the serial killer trappings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 10/5/2011

    " The Darker Side is a beautifully written novel, which is especially interesting considering that the subject matter is so violent. Smoky Barrett just keeps getting more and more interesting. McFadyen is nothing short of brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Gadsden | 7/16/2011

    " Uh, oh. Possible series fatigue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandi | 6/24/2011

    " I read this book first and was drawn in almost immediately. An amazing story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luca | 6/19/2011

    " disappointing. Smoky series should finish here "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emine | 5/30/2011

    " I bought this book in hopes that it would be a well-written mystery novel, but all I could find was tasteless gore that was supposed to make the book more interesting somehow. I finished it wishing I had never picked it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 5/19/2011

    " Unputdownable! I'm on to #4 next! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 5/12/2011

    " Again, unputdownable! Now it's I'm to #4 I'm the series and I'm actually a bit bummed cos it's the last one :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elayne | 4/2/2011

    " exciting, emotional...thrilling
    An edge of the seat gripping part of a wonderful series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica | 1/1/2011

    " A great book, but like the first two (Shadow Man and Face of Death) more. Love the characters and the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammie | 11/26/2010

    " Not as good as the first two but still a great read and excellent story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/5/2010

    " Kapitel 39 zieht sich ein wenig... sonst wie gewohnt: humorvoll, packend, für mich diesmal eher nur "leichte Kost"... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leeann | 7/28/2010

    " The series with Smokey Barret is fast moving always keeping you on your toes.The main characters develope with each book until you almost feel like you know them.
    Great reading! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 7/5/2010

    " Another thriller from McFadyen that I couldn't put down. Love his characters in this Smokey Barrett series. Callie is a hoot and Kirby walks a little left of center and brings an end to the killer(s) and almost herself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Minnie | 6/23/2010

    " Zoals de titel zegt is het maar een duister verhaal. Met geweldige personages en een goed samengesteld verhaal. Altijd leuk om over Smoky te lezen! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 5/13/2010

    " Tom and I are both enjoying this series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Waggonerdebbie | 4/4/2010

    " This was one was a little graphic with sexual violence, I thought. The story line was still good. "
