Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0821763415, Mass Market Paperback)Veterinarian Alyn Blum-Jones's late mother was disinherited long before Alyn was born. Cut off from the Blum family, Alyn has never even met her aunt, Jacqueline Blum, so she's surprised to receive a letter from her asking Alyn to visit the family estate. When she discovers that her wealthy aunt is missing, Alyn is determined to help in any way that she can, although when she arrives at the Maryland estate she instantly walks into more trouble than she can handle.
The police believe that Jacqueline Blum was murdered, and their prime suspect is Alyn. Jacqueline, Alyn discovers, has recently changed her will and life insurance policy to name Alyn, her only living relative, as the sole beneficiary. But Alyn has an even bigger problem, and his name is Peter Youngblood. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he's been hired by the insurance company to find out what really happened to Jacqueline Blum. Is Peter a savior or an assassin? Can Alyn trust him when she discovers that he has a secret agenda that might threaten her very life? And when she finds herself falling in love with him, can she find the courage to trust the one man who can destroy her?
Thanks to complex characters and an expertly paced plot, In the Dark reads like a superb "whodunit" circa 1950. When the prime suspects start dropping like flies, readers will have to rethink their theories about what really happened to Jacqueline Blum. --Lois Faye Dyer
