A judge is brutally murdered; a sixteen year-old girl is accused. Josie Bates, an attorney who left her high powered law practice when her skill inadvertently led to the deaths of two small children, cannot turn her back on this one. Reluctantly she takes on a case that will put both their lives on the line and change one of them forever.
A young blind woman participates in an experiment that could restore her sight but becomes unwittingly drawn into a dark and dangerous conspiracy:
Twenty-four-year-old Audra Carter, a deejay in Manhattan, won’t let mere blindness keep her from living life her way, sometimes even riding her bicycle through town, using her keen hearing and uncanny instincts to guide her. This is all much to the dismay of her father, Jenson, a neuroscientist who has devoted his career to finding a cure for her particular form of blindness. He now believes he has. With a number of test subjects, including Audra, Jenson takes his research to the next level, only to face apparent failure. Before long, a string of bizarre deaths involving the test subjects alarms Jensen and the FBI. Jensen is blamed for those deaths and fears his experiment was hijacked. Soon, Audra is kidnapped. As Jenson races to discover the truth, avoid the FBI, and save his daughter, Audra struggles with her captors and with a new and dangerous kind of seeing: darksight. Audra must not only master her mysterious darksight vision and fight oncoming madness, but also confront her past, to keep them both alive.
“An action-packed thriller full of authentic human drama skillfully depicted. … an intelligently conceived work, driven more than anything else by fully developed characters in the throes of real human emotions.” – Kirkus Reviews
“An engaging female protagonist, a mind-bending plot, and some marvelously gruesome pseudoscience make DARKSIGHT a true page-turning thriller about the fine line between emotional blindness and physical sight. …DARKSIGHT is a scintillating read.” – IndieReader.
“The blade that clears the path for medical progress has another edge, one that often creates unexpected, unimaginable, even unthinkable side effects, both real and imagined. Such is the case with DARKSIGHT. A tightly-written, fast-paced thriller that will make you think–and disturb your sleep. Highly recommended.” – DP Lyle, award-winning author of the Jake Longly and Cain/Harper thriller series.
“Mallery’s novel is a fast-paced thriller that is part X-Files mixed with a dash of CSI.” – The US Review of Books
“‘Darksight’ by DC Mallery is an insightful psychological suspense that will take you on a thrilling ride! … The heroine begins as a person with depth, but as she faces challenges, she really evolves into a woman of incredible strength. … Fans of science fiction, suspense, and thrillers will love ‘Darksight.’ It would also make an excellent selection for a fiction readers group. Lively conversations are guaranteed!” – Reader Views.
“Author DC Mallery has clearly done his research as Darksight is brimming with science and technology that makes it feel like a Michael Crichton novel. … Ultimately it is a book that asks what you would do if you could have your one big wish come true: your sight restored…but there is always a caveat, and sometimes those caveats cost lives.” – San Francisco Book Review.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Darksight was inspired by the real medical phenomena called blindsight, which is the amazing ability that some individuals with cortical blindness have to "see" objects they can't see. With that type of blindness, the retina and optic nerves still function, but the part of the brain that processes vision — the visual cortex — is badly damaged. Yet some people with cortical blindness are still "aware" of objects they can't consciously see. That is, they see without seeing.
Darksight takes blindsight to new and terrifying levels.

If you had the chance to live forever, would you take it?
2053: An old man, Viktor Erikson, lies on his deathbed. Alone and with no known relatives, he is tended to by Olivia, a nurse. He has only one request: that she reads to him.
The request is not unusual, but the battered, leather-bound tome she must read is no ordinary book. Written in 1839, it chronicles the discovery of the fountain of youth by Morgana de la Motte – and Viktor Erikson.
What starts off as a swashbuckling adventure on the high seas in search of riches and eternal life soon transforms into something quite different: a clash between two personalities bound by love and deceit, locked together by a terrible burden of necessity.
What lengths would you go to – and what price would you pay?
As Oliva reads through the ancient book, she discovers a quest for truth and meaning as Viktor and Morgana relive the greatest sufferings and sorrows of humanity, over and over again.
In such a timeless loop, can Viktor or Morgan save their own true selves? Or will their unstable alliance, forged on the fine line between love and hate, turn into a tangled web of deception?
Insensible Loss is a dark historical thriller, breathlessly following Viktor and Morgana through a centuries-long adventure. Switching between the present and the past, Peters’ masterful storytelling make this fast-paced, imaginative epic a bold exploration of a past spiraling out of control – and a future that has never been more uncertain.
A troubled past resurfaces when an investigative journalist agrees to help find a missing child.
The Australian bush is unforgiving, and there is not much hope when a four-year-old boy, Clem, apparently disappears into it without a trace. When the police begin to suspect the boy’s step-father, his lawyer hires Damon, a specialist private investigator, to help defend him.
No stranger to missing person cases, Damon agrees to let his partner, Lucy, interview the family. There she finds a strong connection to the boy’s mother, and determines to find Clem no matter the cost. Having lost her own parents young, and nearly lost her brother, she hopes it will help her to exorcise her own demons.
Refusing to believe that Clem is dead, Lucy begins a search that will take her into the seedier side of a rural community with many secrets. In so doing, she will stumble across criminal activity that will put her in serious danger.
But it will also stretch her fledgling relationship to Damon, the only person she has ever really trusted. Can she find Clem? Can she find an inner peace? Can she let Damon in?
If you enjoy suspense thrillers you are in for a treat with COLD VALLEY NIGHTMARE. It is a standalone, but you can also read about Lucy’s backstory in the bestseller SMALL TOWN NIGHTMARE, which is FREE with Kindle Unlimited and available in paperback.
