Houston, 1985. A group of teenagers, drawn together by a passion for drugs and Heavy Metal, torture and murder one of their companions. But no one knows. Less than a month later, two more brutal crimes follow. As detectives hunt for the killers, the city is rocked when the media brands the teens members of a satanic cult. Thrust into a moral spin, the young killers wonder: should they turn each other into the police, or hope to escape the consequences of their horrifying crimes? Out Here in the Darkness seizes the reader by the throat, taking them step by shocking step through the crimes, the investigations, and the trials and later follows a convicted double-murderer on his 33-year quest for redemption, deep in the dark underbelly of the American prison system. A spellbinding page-turner and an unrelenting trip down the wrong side of the tracks, Out Here in the Darkness will keep you mesmerized and awake at night pondering its questions: What was the motivation behind such savagery? And is there any way to discover the truth buried three decades ago, in the darkness?
