Review: Dark Places by Linda Ladd

Claire Morgan is recovering from wounds she sustained and is just back to work when a gruesome discovery is made.  A man has been murdered in a horrific way and her investigation takes her to a very strange school for the gifted.  Her chief also orders her to work with a psychic who may have insights into the crimes.  She is a no-nonsense cop who is not thrilled with his inclusion in the investigation nor the Woo-woo factor of her 'angelologist' victim.

The methods of the crimes are terrifying - especially for anyone with a fear of creepy crawley things.  This book is quite dark and intense and the secrets of the motivations and past quite disturbing.  Yet is pulls you along through a dark journey to a powerful climax.
