Some Choose Darkness is the first novel in the Rory Moore and Lane Phillips series by Charlie Donlea. In this story, readers get to meet the main character of Rory Moore for the first time.

Rory is a forensic reconstructionist and is very good at what she does. Part of what her work involves is taking cold case homicides and attempting to find out more about them. She does this by putting together details from the scene of the crime, often ones that others missed at the time.

Her father has recently died as well, a sad moment for Rory. She’s at his law office after he has been buried, cleaning out some of his things. While there, she gets a phone call that marks the start of her getting into a case that has been cold for decades.

The year was 1979, and it was summer. During that one significant summer, five women from the area of Chicago went missing. It appears that there was foul play involved. A predator was at hand, and they were very careful not to leave any clues– or bodies– in their wake. The man or woman was nicknamed The Thief.

Nothing came up about this case until the police got a package. It came from someone named Angela Mitchell, a mysterious person they knew nothing about. Her investigations had the appearance of revealing a killer, but she disappeared without any clues before they could talk to her.

It’s been forty years. Now The Thief is facing parole for the murder of Angela. However, Rory has found a file in the law office that indicates that there’s more to this case than meets the eye. Rory keeps making new discoveries and is deep into this case. She wants to find out where Angela went.

Rory continues to look into things, but even she may not be ready for the truth. If it comes out, will she be able to roll with the punches? Read this exciting first book in the series to find out what happens!

The Suicide House is the second novel in the Rory Moore series by Charles Donlea.

A prep school is the site for a horrible murder. But can Rory Moore and Lane Phillips, a psychologist, find out what the truth is about the killings? They’re trying to find out what’s going on before another episode airs on a true crime podcast that’s been airing everything about this case.

The prep school in question is located in Indiana and is called Westmont Preparatory High School. This is a strict school with rules that students are expected to follow. Students are also held to very high expectations when it comes to performance and conduct.

However, there is a patch of woods behind the school where a boarding house sits abandoned. The place is known among the students there as a place where they can go to hang out late at night. But they’re also superstitious about the myth about the Man in the Mirror. The saying goes that you should never allow your candle to go out unless you want that man to find you.

It was just a year ago that the house was the site of a murder. Two students were killed, but whether by a myth or a real person remains to be seen. The case caught the attention of The Suicide House, a popular podcast. As it turns out, a teacher was later found to be responsible for the murders. Still, so many questions are left to answer. One of them is why students who made it out that night are coming back to the house in order to commit suicide.

Rory is collaborating on the podcast with Lane to try and find some answers while recreating the fateful night. The more that they find out, the more that they are starting to think that the bad deeds that went on still linger somehow. The prep school may not have seen the last of this horrible game. With silence and secrets all around, can they discover what’s happening in this school before it’s too late? Read this thriller to find out!
