    EXCERPT: 'It makes you wonder if there’s anything left out there,' said Paul, his voice eerily calm. 'If the world has just gone away, or the dark has eaten everything up . . . If we're all that's left now, alone in the night.'ABOUT THIS BOOK: The sudden appearance of a sinister black hole in the English countryside leads to a baffling murder investigation for Ishmael Jones.

    This book actually takes to readers away from the usual creepy haunted house/mansion etc theme. Instead, there is a hole. Yes sir, a killing hole! I always enjoy these books although, the very best of the Ismael Jones book is the brilliant DEAD MAN WALKING. Could be that it was the very first I read in the series or just something with the book's story that truly captivated me. Or both.MURDER IN THE DARK takes our paranormal crime-fighting duo Is...

    If you haven't yet discovered Simon R. Green's Ishmael Jones mysteries, Murder in the Dark is a good place to start. It's not quite as graphically violent as some of the earlier ones in the series. In fact, this one is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None with the addition of Green's trademark black humor.In 1963, Ishmael Jones crashed to Earth in an alien space ship. Now, he lives in England in human form and works as a fiel...

    Review: MURDER IN THE DARK by Simon R. GreenAnother totally gripping paranormal/sci-fi thriller from an author who consistently delivers engrossing, compelling. and thought-provoking paranormal fiction. MURDER IN THE DARK is the newest in the Ishmael Jones Series, about the secretive agent for a hush-hush covert organization in the UK. I totally admire Ishmael, who can do no wrong in my eyes, and find his background fascinating. This adventure wa...

    A new genre for me science fiction/ mystery. Ishmael Jones is not of this world and is protected by the Organisation. Ishmael and his assistant Penny are asked to act as security at a strange phenomenon. A large hole has appeared in the side of a hill and someone has disappeared down it .At first I thought I had made a mistake with this book as it is not my usual genre but I am glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised. How can people get kille...

    I filed this book under 'Science Fiction' because although it is set up as a mystery, it is actually more SF. Which is great because Simon R. Green is one of my favorite SF authors. Usually he writes books full of very, very strange characters, planets, spaceships and the like. I can really recommend them, because they are also full of humor, science and even romance.Back to Murder in the dark. The title says it all: people get murdered in the da...

    This was creepy. I read it under a blanket half the time because I was alone in my house. I loved the end twist and how were are finding out more and more about Ishmael with each story. Penny is awesome and I can't wait for the next installment.
