A Darker Place

Laurie R. King: A Darker Place (USA 1999)

From the Publisher:
Called "one of the most original talents to emerge in the '90s" by Kirkus Reviews, award-winning author Laurie R. King delivers an intelligent, terrifying, engrossing drama of good and evil, unlike any she has written before....

A respected university professor, Anne Waverly has a past known to few: Years ago, her own unwitting act cost Anne her husband and daughter. Fewer still know that this history and her academic specialty -- alternative religious movements -- have made her a brilliant FBI operative. Four times she has infiltrated suspect communities, escaping her own memories of loss and carnage to find a measure of atonement. Now, as she begins to savor life once more, she has no intention of taking another assignment. Until she learns of more than one hundred children living in the Change movement's Arizona compound...

Anne soon realizes that Change is no ordinary community and hers is no ordinary mission. For, far from appeasing the demons of her past, this assignment is sweeping her back into their clutches... and to the razor's edge of danger.

Laurie R. King: A Darker Place. Bantam, ISBN 0553578243 (December, 1999), 477 p., $6.99.

The Birth of a New Moon

Laurie R. King: The Birth of a New Moon (UK 1999)

From the Publisher:
Anne Waverly, university lecturer and sometime FBI consultant, lives with the curse of a tragic past -- the horrific deaths of her husband and beloved daughter Abby in a mass suicide pact. No one knows what she has suffered better than Glen McCarthy, an FBI expert in cult behaviour. As a professor of new religious movements, Anne is called on by McCarthy over the years to help solve certain FBI cases, and Anne, in an attempt to atone for the long-ago tragedy, has never refused him. Until now. But Anne finds she can't say no to this particular case: a religious community out in the desert that looks as though it has the seeds of dangerous fervour. Slowly Anne works her way into the life of the community, and there meets two children, one of whom reminds her strongly of Abby, her dead daughter, and suddenly she finds herself involved at a level that could be fatal...

A Darker Place

Laurie R. King: A Darker Place (USA 1999)

From the Publisher:
With her debut novel, A Grave Talent, Laurie R. King became the first novelist since Patricia Cornwell to win prizes for Best First Crime Novel on both sides of the Atlantic. Now, in her first stand-alone novel, the Edgar Award and John Creasey Award winner brings us an intelligent, engrossing drama of good and evil -- once again showing how Laurie King breaks every rule to craft some of the most fascinating novels in crime fiction.

Anne Waverly is a respected university professor. Few know that, eighteen years ago, her own unwitting act cost Anne her husband and seven-year-old daughter. Fewer still know that her past and her academic specialty -- alternative religious movements -- have made her a brilliant FBI operative. Four times she has infiltrated suspect communities, escaping her own memories of loss and carnage to find a measure of atonement. Now, as she begins to savor life once more, she has no intention of taking another assignment.

Until, that is, she is given an envelope containing details of the Change group and its leaders, whose Arizona site houses over one hundred children and a school admired by even the local authorities. Outsiders have found these children, many of them rescued from abuse, healthy and content -- but far too well-behaved...

Soon Anne -- as the eager, pliable seeker Ana Wakefield -- is on her way to the red cliffs and high desert air of the Change compound. As she explores its enigmatic mixture of mysticism, hierarchy, and trickery, she grows unexpectedly close to two abandoned children fostered by Change. Fourteen-year-old Jason Delgado is a tough, sexy, wary street kid; his timid, silent little sister Dulcie reminds Anne all too much of her own lost daughter.

Slowly, she comes to see that this is no ordinary community and hers is no ordinary mission. For, far from appeasing the demons of her past, this assignment is sweeping her back into their clutches.

In A Darker Place, King masterfully reinvents the novel of psychological suspense, creating a complex and iron-willed woman who, in searching for the truth among the darker places of her past, discovers her own redemption.

Laurie R. King: A Darker Place. Bantam, ISBN 0553107119 (March, 1999), 384 p., $23.95.
