Too Dark to Sleep

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Maggie Quinn was the top homicide detective in Chicago’s Area One before she suffered a devastating loss. Now struggling to face each day, Quinn becomes obsessed with solving her last case for the department that now bars her from wearing a badge. But is she targeting the right person or is Quinn’s tormented mind pushing her to ruin the life of an innocent man?

Avid readers of crime fiction, noir or psychological thrillers will find Too Dark to Sleep a fresh take on their favorite genre. This is the first book in a gripping new series and not to be missed.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 08, 2013 – Gallagher's densely layered murder mystery is part police procedural and part psychological thriller a combination that unfortunately slows the book's pacing to a grisly crawl. Maggie Quinn, a disgraced Chicago homicide detective, gets pulled back into the pursuit of a serial killer she was chasing before her young daughter died and her world fell apart. From her luxurious townhouse, courtesy of an appropriately slimy ex-husband, Quinn recuperates from a suicide attempt and visits her imprisoned father, who happens to be able to pull strings within the corrupt Chicago Police Department. Called in as a consultant to the homicide squad, Quinn battles her psychic demons expressed as a physical manifestation of darkness as she pursues a homicidal surgeon whose chilly and chilling character is the focus of some of the book's best writing. While Gallagher takes some genuine risks, such as killing off a particularly sympathetic character, she lards on subplots that are not fully explained and come too slowly to help move the plot forward. The courtroom theatrics at the end are implausible and the resolution is, like much of the writing, overwrought and unsatisfying.

Customer Reviews

Too Dark To Sleep

Solid, good read and also cinematic for me. Surprises for the reader and earnest danger for the main characters. Original protagonist, Maggie Quinn, would make a really interesting role for a mature actress looking for meaty bone to chew on after having had their fill of ingenue appetizers.

If you like a character-driven thriller with great dialogue and telling detail in the policework then you're in for a treat with this one
