Into the Abyss (A Novella)

“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster. For when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

The Violet Darger series continues with this gripping novella, Into the Abyss.

Will Violet Darger agree to a face to face meeting with the man who shot her?

Still awaiting trial, infamous serial killer Leonard Stump has hinted at the locations of additional bodies — more desert graves waiting to be uncovered. He wants to talk, but he has one condition. Violet Darger must be present at the interview.

Now the pressure is on. Should Darger head to Vegas and sit down with Stump? Everyone else seems to think so.

It’s a chance to close some cases and give families closure, they say. A chance to learn something crucial about the criminal mind, they say. A chance to do something good.

So why does Darger feel like it’s all going to go terribly wrong?
