Dark Corners by Megan Goldin | Review

Book #2 | Megan Goldin | Dark CornersSt. Martin's Press | Pub: August 8, 2023 | Pages: 352

Book #2 in the Rachel Krall Series.

I enjoyed The Night Swim but I really loved this one. I would have given this one a 5-star, but I couldn’t get past the nasty social media aspect of it. I understand it was significant to the story, but the social media world described and the action of the people just made me annoyed.

Having said that though, the rest of the novel was perfection! Megan is an excellent author that brings loads of suspense and mystery to her writing. I also love Rachel Krall’s character; she is so fierce and never backs down. I’m so intrigued about where the series will go next, especially after meeting a special FBI agent.

If you want an interesting, twisty, unputdownable psychological thriller, you won’t regret picking this one up! 

Thank you to St. Martin's Press for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Terence Bailey is about to be released from prison for breaking and entering, though investigators have long suspected him in the murders of six women. As his freedom approaches, Bailey gets a surprise visit from Maddison Logan, a hot, young influencer with a huge social media following. Hours later, Maddison disappears, and police suspect she’s been kidnapped—or worse. Is Maddison’s disappearance connected to her visit to Bailey? Why was she visiting him in the first place?

When they hit a wall in the investigation, the FBI reluctantly asks for Rachel’s help in finding the missing influencer. Maddison seems only to exist on social media; she has no family, no friends, and other than in her posts, most people have never seen her. Who is she, really? Using a fake Instagram account, Rachel Krall goes undercover to BuzzCon, a popular influencer conference, where she discovers a world of fierce rivalry that may have turned lethal.

When police find the body of a woman with a tattoo of a snake eating its tail, the FBI must consider a chilling possibility: Bailey has an accomplice on the outside and a dangerous obsession with influencers, including Rachel Krell herself. Suddenly a target of a monster hiding in plain sight, Rachel is forced to confront the very real dangers that lurk in the dark corners of the internet.

Rachel Krall, the true crime podcaster star of Megan Goldin’s acclaimed Night Swim returns to search for a popular social media influencer who disappeared after visiting a suspected serial killer.
