"Darkness Once More" is a novel in the Black Comedy Humor/Comedy and General Mystery and Detective genre, by Grant FieldGrove.

It is the first book in the series: Archie Lemons.
Overall "Darkness Once More" is a good book. Although it was kind of slow in the beginning (like there were more Archie rants than an actual story), it started to pick up mid-point and have some action in it.

My best part was when Archie wanted to be a bad guy by hanging up the phone without saying bye to Mrs. Fick, only for her to call back and kill his flow. Then he ends it with "ta-ta." Hilarious!

What I didn't like all through the book was the constant negative comparison/referencing: either someone's dying career or horrible acting, a terrible show, a bad writer...always something. I kept reading, hoping for something positive. Nada.

I really enjoyed the suspense and mystery, though. That's why I kept reading.
