Billy is known throughout his small town as a trouble maker. But now that his father told him they might lose their house, Billy is doing everything he can to make money in time to save it. That is, until boys start going missing.

Billy has his hand in a few odd jobs around the town, but has been so focused on saving his money that he didn’t realize he had uncovered clues to who was kidnapping the boys. That is, until he is confronted by the kidnapper.

Ask the Dark will take you on a crazy journey with Billy and his family as he tries to change the towns opinion of him, save his family home, and solve a kidnapping/murder at the same time.

I really enjoyed this story but sometimes the dialogue took me out of it. At one point near the end Billy is engaged in a sort of inner monologue that felt a little too cliched. But overall I highly enjoyed reading about Billy. Henry Turner wrote the entire book almost in a stream-of-consciousness sort of way where the reader is inside Billy’s head.

This mystery novel will keep you guessing up until the end. A fun new read for any thriller fan .
