Dark Illusion is a dark and suspenseful thriller. We have a murderer with a personal vendetta who is cold and calculated, and we have a detective who just can't let this mystery go. In a game of cat an mouse can detective Davis not only figure out who is killing but stop them before they kill again.
Normally I get bored with murder mystery novels as many times they fall into the usual tropes. Moison however, kept the twists and turns coming from the very beginning (mostly by choosing an uncommon candidate for her murderer). She also does a wonderful job of taking you inside the murderer's head and showing the descent into to delusion.
I easily became attached to Detective Davis and I had a real emotional investment with the character. That for me is what really made this book stand out.

I never did see all the plot twists coming. Not until the very last paragraph. Dana V. Moison has the ability to take the reader deep into the minds of the characters. This book had me glued to my kindle until the very end, and I will most likely re-read it to see if I can pick up on any clues as I go along. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.
So many twists and turns!
Dana V Moison's Dark Illusion The Deceptions of Beauty Had Never Been So Dark is a great read! Dana did an amazing job of developing the characters. The story draws you in, keeps you guessing as to why! The story centers around three women. This book will keep you turning pages. It is an amazing book especially for a new writer. I will by looking for more from Dana Moison! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good suspense novel!
Dark Illusion for the Win
I started reading this book and couldn't put it down! My attention was captured from the very first line of the book. I enjoyed how the story unfolded with the detective's investigation. I was compelled to keep reading because I wanted to understand the reason for the murders. Even in the last chapter I still wanted to know why to bring closure to the entire story. I like how the epilogue completed the story even though the events had transpired three years prior tithe climax of the story.
I wasn't expecting the turn of events that revealed the real killer. I would love to read more stories that include Detective Davis. Detective Davis was a woman I would want to meet, and she would be considered a tough woman who can solve a case.
This book reminded me of the television show Criminal Minds with the mentioning of unsubs and profiles. If you like shows like Criminal Minds, you will love this book!
Awesome psychological thriller!
A great book I will definitely read again to see if this time I can detect the clues to the unbelievable ending!!!
A delightful Christmas read!

I was a huge fan of this book! I was impressed with the fact that even though the killer was revealed from the beginning it still didn't lack in surprises. All the twists and turns made for one very, can't put down book. Maybe that's why this was the fastest book I have ever read? My favorite part about this book is the fact that it focuses on three woman who are not only beautiful & compelling but strong and independent as well. The ending wasn't what I expected either which was so great!
The story is interesting, even engrossing, and surprisingly original! Nothing like any other book I've ever read!! And I have to point out this book is very well written. The author's unique way to narrate the story is just captivating and made it even more fun to read.
Nothing like any other book I've ever read
This was a fun and intriguing read. Filled with enough suspense and plot twists to keep me frantically turning pages, I will definitely follow this author. Don't hesitate to read this exciting thriller, but be prepared not to put it down until the dramatic conclusion.
Creepy and wonderful

I just finished the book. It's now 6:04AM and I have yet to go to sleep. I just couldn't stop reading! What an ending! I hope this will be the first in a series. I'm kind of invested in Sharon now and I want to see how things go between her and Chris!
