?Review: Into the Night by Cynthia Eden

Having read and enjoyed the first three books in the series, I expected an enjoyable experience with Into the Night. It did not disappoint. Someone is hunting serial killers and Agents Bowen Murphy and Macey Knight find themselves pitted against a brilliant and calculated villain who is always one step ahead. 

“Because predators didn’t always walk on four legs. The most dangerous predator…he walked on two.”


I had a great time with this installment in The Killer Instinct series. The prologue gave the reader insight into Agent Macey Knight’s up, close and personal experience with a serial killer. This set the tone for the remainder of the story.

The story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time I spent reading. I couldn’t resist turning the pages. I needed to know who was hunting and killing serial killers. The hunting of serials may not be so bad, but the villain  let lots of collateral damage in his wake, which made the situation dangerous for innocent victims.

The story featured several suspects. I had a list written. However, despite having this list, I couldn’t figure out who was the guilty party. The many well placed red herrings threw me off the scent of the real villain. It wasn’t until it was revealed that I learnt their identity. Funny enough, that person was on my list. There were other players involved who I never once suspected. 

The moments leading up to revelation and capture were tense, suspenseful, and riddled with danger. I feared for Bowen and Macy as the perp had them in his crosshairs. One scene near to the end almost wrecked my nerves. I kept thinking, this can’t be happening. Thankfully, it worked itself out in the end.

To spice things up so that all was not dark and gloomy, Eden gave the reader a sweet and spicy romance. Bowen and Macey had a great partnership both on and off the field. I loved their chemistry. I appreciated that the romance did not overshadow the suspense. They spent the night together as lovers and their days as work partners.


Overall, this was a fitting addition to the series and a must read for fans of romantic suspense.

  1. I love the way you were really anticipating this book, trying to figure out who was behind it, and then it had you so worried about what was happening. One of these days, I will get to this series.
