Pete Fernandez should be dead. His life -- professional and personal -- is in ruins. His best friend is dead. His newspaper career is past tense. His ex is staying with him as her own marriage crumbles. On top of that, the former journalist finds himself in the eye of a dangerous storm; investigating a missing girl with an unexpected partner and inching closer and closer to a vicious, calculating killer cutting a swath of blood across Miami -- while at the same time battling his own personal demons that refuse to be silenced. Down the Darkest Street, the hard-boiled sequel to Alex Segura's acclaimed debut, Silent City, tells a tale of redemption, survival and the sordid backstreets of Miami -- while asking the question that many are too scared to answer: When faced with pure darkness, would you fold or fight?
