Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is yet another great book by Hillier. This book is a bit different from her other books, and not nearly as creepy. That doesn’t mean it is bad – it’s just different than expected.

This is a very good historical fiction that follows the rise of an iconic 1970s rock band and their mysterious breakup at the height of their popularity. The story is told through a series of interviews of the band members, managers and their friends. I listened to the audio and the cast did a fantastic job of portraying the story.
