The Gravediggers are a group of elite military personnel who may as well be dead. After all, everyone in the unit has been burned by the United States and its military, and not even their families know they are still above ground.

Meet Deacon Tucker. A former black ops agent, it’s up to him to stop a terrorist plot known as the Day of Destiny. As his cover, he takes a job as a funeral assistant at the only mortuary in the tiny town of Last Stop, Texas.

Tess Sherman runs the establishment, and it quickly becomes apparent to her that Deacon has more secrets than anyone she has ever worked with before. Their worlds collide when a man who was already presumed dead ends up on Tess’s embalming table in the middle of the night. Secrets are soon revealed, and Deacon must enlist Tess’s help to stop the terrorists before it is too late.

Every page of The Darkest Corner is filled with action, intrigue, and high stakes danger. Hart combines fascinating, complicated characters with fast-paced prose and descriptions that are always on point. This is such a creative concept for a series, and I loved Tess (it’s not every day we read about a leading lady who is a mortician), and this unique element automatically drew me into the story. Hart writes with both passion and power, showcasing her distinctive, lyrical voice throughout this book, and ensuring her place in thriller fiction for years to come. Remember the name Liliana Hart. This is a writer to watch!
