Book review: The Darkest Place by Jo Spain (published 2018)
Format: audiobook (from Audible) narrated by Aoife McMahon
Rating: 3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

GR summary:
It’s Christmas day, and DCI Tom Reynolds receives an alarming call. A mass grave has been discovered on Oileán na Caillte, the island which housed the controversial psychiatric institution St. Christina’s. Amongst the dead, the body of a doctor who went missing from the hospital in mysterious circumstances forty years ago was found… jeng jeng jeng!

This is the fourth book in the ‘Inspector Tom Reynolds’ series. With her excellent storytelling, Jo Spain uncovers this murder mystery involving disturbing practices in a (now closed) mental asylum.

This was of course, again, brilliantly narrated by Aoife McMahon.

There were a lot of unanswered questions and twists that don’t make much sense to me, so unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the previous three in the series.
But hey ho..

I’m also attaching one of my Youtube shorts – walking up Pendle Hill (East Lancashire, England)! It was a breathtaking short walk but also with a VERY STEEP first half. Ending it by starting the new audiobook , The Boy Who Fell (book 5 in the series), on my drive home made it so much better. Please come back for its review soon 🙂
