Judge Neeson is found murdered in his home with a police truncheon sticking out of his rectum. Det. Chief Insp. Jim Sheehan, along with his colleagues, is wondering who would kill such an influential person? What is the reason? Someone dissatisfied by the trial results? The judge is, among other things, a member of the club named 'Fulfilment od the Enlightened' whose purpose of existence, for people who are not potential members or patrons as they are called, is Brexit. After the second murder, which inextricably resembles the murder of a judge, little does Sheehan know that he is about to be pulled into a whirlpool of dark minds and sadistic desires.

The killer is writing a blog on 'The Dark Web', a scary place full of violence and death where it is almost impossible to find a person's ID who surfing and blogging on it. The killer would write a blog after every murder, making sure he included every detail in the announcement. Titles of his announcements were written in Greek letters, and he would use the old - fashioned style of writing, sometimes using Latin terms.

The Dark Web Murders by Brian O'Hare is a great crime/mystery/thriller book that had me at the edge of my seat the entire time. There is not much action in the book until the end, but the book is written in such an interesting way that the reader is constantly curious about who the culprit is and what is going to happen next. O'Hare made sure that the reader is acquainted with every part of the story so we can read from the killer's point of view and detectives' point of view. The book is written in a third person.

There are lots of characters in The Dark Web Murders; every member of the team participated in the case, but Detective Sheehan, Sergeant Denise Stewart, and Detective McBride are the most important ones in solving the case. Characters are wonderfully described and since there are lots of them, O'Hare gives us a list of characters at the beginning of the book which I am grateful for since it really helped me to understand some things.

The dates and days are written at the beginning of every chapter so it was really easy to follow the timeline of the story.

There are curse words in the book, but they are censored or spelled differently since the book is written in British English. There are many graphic scenes of murders. I have found a few missing punctuation marks, but it didn't bother me too much and I can tell that this book is professionally edited.

I loved everything about The Dark Web Murders and I'll give it solid 4 out of 4 stars since it was one of the best mystery books I have ever read. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves any kind of mystery and crime mixed up. It's not suitable for the younger population since there are quite a lot of graphic scenes.

This is a smooth read. This book has lots of suspends and it was well written. It's a wonderful book that boasts of so many characters. The build-up of characters was good. The rating was also deserved. Good review.
