Paris Peralta is suspected of killing her celebrity husband, and her long-hidden past now threatens to destroy her future. When Paris Peralta is arrested in her own bathroom--covered in blood, holding a straight razor, her celebrity husband dead in the bathtub behind her--she knows she'll be charged with murder. But as bad as this looks, it's not what worries her the most. With the unwanted media attention now surrounding her, it's only a matter of time before someone from her long hidden past recognizes her and destroys the new life she's worked so hard to build, along with any chance of a future. Twenty-five years earlier, Ruby Reyes, known as the Ice Queen, was convicted of a similar murder in a trial that riveted Canada in the early nineties. Reyes knows who Paris really is, and when she's unexpectedly released from prison, she threatens to expose all of Paris's secrets. Left with no other choice, Paris must finally confront the dark past she escaped, once and for all. Because the only thing worse than a murder charge are two murder charges.… (més)

My favorite thriller end-to-end in a long time. Some dark subject matter but a solid story and mystery, in-depth characters, and enough twists to keep your interest high. First time reading Jennifer Hillier and she did not disappoint. I'll be looking to go through her other works soon. 5 stars

Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the ARC. ( )

Things We Do in the Dark begins with a murder. Paris Peralta is covered with blood and holding the knife that killed her husband. Of course, she is presumed guilty, especially as she was a young nobody when she married him and he was an retired celebrity. Oddly, she is more worried about people recognizing her from her past than being convicted in the present. She fears if her secret comes out she will be facing two murder charges.

Meanwhile, Owen, a podcaster is researching Canada’s infamous Ice Queen who twenty-five years earlier murdered her married lover by stomping him with an ice skate. When he was young, he shared an apartment with the Ice Queen’s daughter Joey and has always felt responsible for Joey’s death in a fire.

How these stories come together is a compelling read. The resolution is not surprising at all, but it is satisfying.

Paris Peralta is found by the police in the bathroom with her husband’s dead body in the tub. To complicate matters she's holding the murder weapon in her hands. Of course, it looks bad, but you have to think that it wouldn't be this easy to find the killer. It gets more complicated when we learn that her husband, Jimmy, is 30 years older than her... Jimmy is famous as he was part of a show that everyone remembers and recently, he has come back from retirement to do a couple of comedy specials. No one has to tell Paris that the situation is NOT in ANYWAY good. Believe it or not...it indeed can get worse, especially if the police learn who she really is. Someone already knows and they are blackmailing her. Now we learn about Ruby Reyes...known as the Ice Queen, who is in prison in Canada. She is about to be released back into society after serving a sentence for murdering a man. She knows exactly who Paris is and wants money in exchange for silence. Now we come to Drew who is an investigative reporter in Toronto. His next true-crime podcast is about Ruby Reyes and her daughter. He wants the world to know what an awful person Ruby actually is. Drew feels guilty. He made mistakes and he is relieving the time when he let his friend down. Joey Reyes is the daughter of Ruby Reyes. She suffered in the hands of Ruby's verbal and physical abuse. The story is told from these three characters POV....Paris, Drew and Ruby...and by the end the reader will probably have no more idea about the truth than we did from the start. The audiobook was perfect for this novel and Carla Vega did a fantastic presentation. The timelines were a big problem for me but the narrator managed to keep them straight for me. I enjoyed guessing the twists and turns I really liked the story overall. ( )

This is the 3rd book I have read by this author. I like her easy going writing, but unfortunately there are 1 too many times when you have to throw logic, facts, and common sense out the window. The endings of this authors books also usually seem rushed.
That being said this story did have 1 or 2 surprises and again the flow of these books are very smooth and easy. ( )

Not my favorite Hillier. Thought it could have been shorter and more tightly edited. I read a lot of thrillers, but I tend to suspend disbelief so I'm still typically surprised by the twists. Not with this one - I guessed them all early. I usually like POV switch-ups, but it just wasn't successful for me this time. Not awful, but I'd recommend Jar of Hearts or Little Secrets way before this one. ( )

Because while you can reinvent yourself, you can't outrun yourself. (p. 38)
Drew needs to accept that maybe he wants the fire to not have been an accident so there's someone to blame for Joey's death, other than himself. (p. 139)
The past is melding with the present. The truth is mixing with the lies. This is a supernova. (p. 297)
