"In this chilling and disquieting debut thriller perfect for fans of Caroline Kepnes's Hidden Bodies and Jeff Lindsay's Dexter series, a family man with a habit of digging up the past catches the attention of a serial killer who wants anything but his secrets uncovered. For years, unbeknownst to his wife and teenage daughter, Martin Reese has been illegally buying police files on serial killers and obsessively studying them, using them as guides to find the missing bodies of victims. He doesn't take any souvenirs, just photos that he stores in an old laptop, and then he turns in the results anonymously. Martin sees his work as a public service, a righting of wrongs. Detective Sandra Whittal sees the situation differently. On a meteoric rise in police ranks due to her case‑closing efficiency, Whittal is suspicious of the mysterious source she calls the Finder, especially since he keeps leading the police right to the bodies. Even if he isn't the one leaving bodies behind, how can she be sure he won't start soon? On his latest dig, Martin searches for the first kill of Jason Shurn, the early 1990s murderer who may have been responsible for the disappearance of his wife's sister. But when he arrives at the site, he finds more than just bones. There's a freshly killed body--a young and missing Seattle woman--lying among remains that were left there decades ago. Someone else knew where Jason Shurn left the corpses of his victims...and that someone isn't happy that Martin has been going around digging up his work. And when a crooked cop with a tenuous tie to Martin vanishes, Whittal begins to zero in on the Finder. Hunted by a real killer and by Whittal, Martin realizes that in order to escape, he may have to go deeper into the killer's dark world than he ever thought.."--… (altro)

Martin Reese tiene un pasatiempo: los crímenes. Meticulosa y obsesivamente, se entrega desde hace años a ese perturbador hobby a espaldas de su mujer y de su hija adolescente: tras obtener en el mercado negro los expedientes de los más variados asesinos en serie, los utiliza para localizar y desenterrar los cuerpos de aquellas víctimas que la policía nunca logró descubrir. Saca fotos, las guarda en su viejo portátil y solo entonces da un aviso anónimo a la comisaría sobre el hallazgo. Esta afición es para él un servicio público, una reparación de daños allí donde los investigadores fracasaron. Pero para la detective Sandra Whittal y su meteórica carrera en el cuerpo gracias a su eficacia cerrando casos, el tema es algo personal. Desconfía del macabro denunciante porque, aunque él no sea el autor de los delitos, ¿cómo puede estar segura de que pronto no empezará a serlo? Pero Whittal no es la única interesada en el misterioso desenterrador: alguien más —alguien dispuesto a matar— tampoco está nada contento con el trabajo de ese aficionado empeñado en sacar a la luz los cadáveres que tantas molestias se tomó él para ocultar bajo tierra...
A mitad de camino entre la acidez de Dexter y la eficacia de El talento de Mr. Ripley, cada una de las páginas de este trepidante y morbosamente adictivo thriller rebosa innovación, oscuridad y suspense

Familienvater Martin Reese hat ein ungewöhnliches und auch wohl gefährliches Hobby. Er sucht nach den Leichen von Menschen, die Opfer eines Serienkillers wurden. Dann gräbt er die menschlichen Überreste aus und meldet die Funde anonym an die Polizei. Er glaubt, etwas Gutes zu tun und betrachtet sich selbst als Kämpfer für die Gerechtigkeit. Doch dann macht er eine Entdeckung, die ihm zeigt, dass jemand weiß, was er da so treibt und dass es gefährlich ist, einem Serienkiller in die Quere zu kommen.
Die Idee zu diesem Thriller finde ich irgendwie schon interessant, aber trotzdem konnte mich die Geschichte überhaupt nicht packen. Mir fehlt einfach die Spannung.
Martin Reese ist ein seltsamer Typ. Als Motiv für seine Tätigkeit gibt er vor, dass er seine vor Jahren verschwundene Schwägerin sucht. Aber in Wirklichkeit scheint er Gefallen an diesem Tun zu haben. Niemand weiß, was er da treibt. Er ist sehr von sich eingenommen und betrachtet sich als Held. Also, mir war er überhaupt nicht sympathisch. Aber auch die anderen Personen haben mir in ihrer Darstellung nicht besonders gefallen.
Als er ein altes Grab freilegt und darin eine frische Leiche findet, gibt ihm das zu denken. Ihm wird klar, dass er jemandem in die Quere gekommen ist und dass es führ ihn gefährlich werden könnte. Also muss er sich und seine Familie schützen.
Die Leseprobe des Buches hat mir etwas versprochen, was das Buch dann nicht gehalten hat. Der Schreibstil ist gut und flüssig zu lesen. War der Anfang des Buches noch spannend, so ließ die Spannung zunehmend nach. Auch das Ende ist unbefriedigend, da vorhersehbar.
Konnte mich überhaupt nicht überzeugen. ( )

Thank you to Goodreads and Atria books for the opportunity to read and review Find You in the Dark by Nathan Ripley.
While not exactly a page-turner, this book was entertaining enough and fairly middle-of-the-road for me. It reads part thriller, part procedural, part whodunnit. I found myself disliking the main character a great deal. I appreciate his moral ambiguity and the fact that he was not written as a black/white character. He has numerous faults and makes many selfish, poor decisions. I found that you had to suspend much disbelief with this novel, as certain events or problems happened "just so" and in a way that made the whole thing feel a bit too contrived at times. Things would work out a little too perfectly for the characters and there's only so much you can give a pass to before becoming frustrated by it all. Mild spoiler: You never do find out exactly where Tinsley ended up and that unsatisfied me. I enjoy ruminating on where Martin may have ended up if the events of this story never transpired. Would he have reached a point of murder himself? Or would he have managed to remain satisfied in the role of the "Finder"? The writing style was a little on the dry side in my opinion, but the story managed to hold my attention. I wanted to see it through. All in all, not quite a slam-dunk but definitely worthwhile if you're unsure what to read next. ( )

Thank you to Atria Books and NetGalley for an e-ARC of Find You in the Dark by Nathan Ripley in exchange for an honest review. If you like your mystery fiction dark and foreboding, this is the book for you. Dread seems to be around every corner. Martin Reese, a dot.com retiree, has a strange hobby. He secretly buys serial killer files from an unscrupulous policeman and then intensely studies them until he finds the location of the hidden bodies of the victims. After digging to verify that he is correct, he leaves the remains where he found them and then reports his findings to the police, always anonymously. Detective Sandra Whittal soon becomes suspicious that the person finding these bodies may himself be a killer. And someone is watching Martin and his family! This is a first novel for Nathan Ripley and hopefully there will be more to follow. Well done. ( )

A special thank you to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Martin Reese digs up murder victims from cold case files he buys from the police. He calls in his findings anonymously to the police but Detective Sandra Whittal is suspicious of her caller and his motives. As she moves in on discovering who her 'Finder' is, Martin is being hunted by someone who is not happy with his discoveries. With his family's safety on the line, Martin must go even deeper into the dark realm of murder.

Hailed as a cross between Dexter and The Talented Mr. Ripley, I thought this book was going to be a mesmerizing study in character development. Well...some comparisons just shouldn't be made. I got completely lost in the story, and I don't mean that in a good way, I literally mean that I couldn't flesh out the actual story from the messy plot. I really had to push myself to finish and this was because I didn't connect with the characters—they weren't believable. Nathan Ripley's Martin Reese lacks the depth and likability factor of Dexter Morgan, or the creepy brilliance of Highsmith's Tom Ripley. ( )
