The Dark Web Murders by Brian O'Hare is a crime thriller novel. The book was published by Crimson Cloak Publishing. It is the fourth book in The Inspector Sheehan Mysteries series, but it can be easily read alone. At the beginning of the story, a young boy is arrested for manslaughter. On his first night at the Magilligan Prison, he got killed by two prisoners accidentally six years ago.
On the present day, Judge Trevor Neeson is brutally murdered at his home. Chief Inspector Jim Sheehan and his team are assigned to solve this murder. Following this murder, another person is found brutally murdered in the same fashion as the Judge. These two victims have no connections between them. The Detectives team caught in race to chase all possible leads. Soon, the team found that the murderer has been writing a blog on the Dark Web. He calls himself “Nemein” and explains away his reasoning for the murders and their gruesome details on that blog. Two more individuals got killed in the same fashion by the same killer. During this investigation, Sheehan and his team found a secret organization called “Fulfillment for the Enlightened Club”.
More questions arise when the detectives proceed this case. Why this club is secret? Is there any connection between the club and the murderer? Will the detectives find and save the next target? Will they find the killer? I lost myself in reading the second half of the story. I enjoyed the suspense throughout the book.
This book is a cliffhanger one and I love it. The author has created a character list with a short description about them and a glossary at the beginning of the book. This helps when it is hard to follow the characters and the police terms in the book. I liked the idea of the story that the killer is writing a blog so that the readers can understand what the killer is thinking.
This book will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. So, I rate this novel 4 out of 4 stars. This book was professionally written and edited. This book was really a gripping tale from the start and filled with twists and turns. It is not appropriate for those who are under age 18 due to violence, adult themes and sensitive information. I recommend this book for those who love to read books about crimes, mystery, and thriller.
