The Familiar Dark by Amy Engel review – a gripping, graphic hunt for the truth

The seedy underbelly of a small Missouri town is exposed when two young girls are brutally murdered one snowy night in this gripping psychological thriller. The opening chapter in The Familiar Dark is titled “The End.” and is a short, shocking page and a half that draws the reader straight into the narrative.

“They died during a freak April snowstorm, blood pooling on a patchy bed of white.”
