Michael, has truly made perfect for the story. First, we introduce you to a brilliant scientist in our In Dark Places book review who is on the brink of discovering something huge regarding psychiatric medicine. Her name is Robin Cameron and she has managed to create something that might prove like a breakthrough in treating mentally challenged patients.
She has invented a special magnetic helmet that has the ability to trigger certain emotionally painful memories in her patients. This machine then manages to modify all of these memories that make the patients angry and mainly lead to murder. It sounds like a wonderful way to treat angry patients and serial killers without much work.
Her first promising subject appears to be one typical serial killer named Justin Gray. He would be sent into rehab to test this treatment as he has committed countless crimes in the form of killing high school girls.
At first, his motivations are unknown for these killings as he doesn’t even kidnap them to torture them or sexually assault them and they find out that he has to drink heavily to deal with all of the death around him that he is responsible for.
Another character is then introduced to the story who you get to meet in this In Dark Places book review, LAPD Sargeant Alan Brand who makes Gray look like a teddy bear compared to the trauma that this man has witnessed in his life.
The story gets super twisted after meeting these characters as the serial killer Gray manages to escape and in all of the trouble, Robin’s teenage daughter is kidnapped. Robin doesn’t know who to accuse of this crime, the sick serial killer Gray or the traumatized cop Alan?
Another scenario comes to mind that involves a more serious and darker conspiracy. Whatever it is, you get to find out for yourself and witness all of the excitement as you take a look at this awesome thriller that has a ton of suspense for yourself.
