Description

For fans of Rachel Hawkins with a salacious reality show edge, Then Things Went Dark follows a cast of hot-headed contestants competing to prove themselves to an audience of millions...but with eyes following you everywhere, how can you hide your motive to kill?

The first episode is waiting...are you ready to watch?

No murder has ever had more witnesses…

Six people land on a desert island ready to make their reality show debut. The contestants are suitably glamorous and dramatic – and they're also hungry to prove themselves. The stakes are high and with millions of viewers watching, losing is not an option. But three weeks and eighteen episodes later, five of the six contestants sit in a Portuguese police station, and none of them are winners. 

Because twelve million people were watching when Rhys Sutton died on camera, and someone must pay for the crime.

The best friend, the rival, the girlfriend, the lover, and the sworn enemy are left standing. And of course, no-one is talking. But how do you keep secrets when the world has been watching? Especially when, just a day before his murder, Rhys was the most hated man on television.

For fans of Rachel Hawkins with a salacious reality show edge, Then Things Went Dark follows a cast of hot-headed contestants competing to prove themselves to an audience of millions...but with eyes...

Suspenseful and twisty! Loved then premise of a reality TV show mixed with a little murder. Recommend to fans of the genre!

A train wreck I couldn’t peel my eyes away from. I loved how trashy reality tv and a murder mystery were joined to create a great book. The characters were both simultaneously likable and hated. Had a fun amount of romance and the perfect amount of drama.
I loved the social media aspects at the end of each chapter to see how their “real world” was perceiving their actions.
The ending gave me all the answers I needed but I felt like it didn’t give me what I wanted. I also was confused why the cops had a romantic relationship it really didn’t add to the overall of the story.
Overall will be highly recommending this book to all.
