On Australia’s island state, more than one species of Tasmanian Devil exists…

Beneath the surface of Nina Holt’s perfect marriage lurks a life of terror inflicted upon her by her politically powerful husband Michael and his brother Greg, a sadistic detective. For over a decade they have managed to keep Nina imprisoned, using her to satisfy their every whim.

Worse still, the only light in her life—her 9-year-old son, Sam—considers Michael a hero. When Sam imitates Michael’s violence by lashing out at her, Nina knows it’s time for both of them to escape before Sam truly turns into the monster Michael is grooming him to become.

After crashing her car in her haste to escape, kind motorist Case Herder offers her help. Unaware that he has his own plans for her, Nina accepts, igniting a deadly game of cat and mouse as they flee across Tasmania with Sam.

As Michael and Greg relentlessly hunt them down to Cradle Mountain, Nina finds herself with nowhere left to run. Cornered, she has no choice but to face evil head-on.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Ms Daniels delivers a cleverly-crafted and skilfully executed psychological thriller – ending each chapter with a cliff-hanger that catapults the reader further into the next chapter.


I took a chance on a $.99 offering of The Devil’s Cradle. Boy, am I glad I did! This was a great thriller with a compelling plot and characters that you’ll get to know in depth. The heroine and hero are truly admirable and courageous. The villains are utterly despicable.


Darcy Daniels’ descriptions – from despair, the pain from loss, healing from mistakes, guilt, to the joy of finding one’s path – allow the reader to feel everything deeply. This contributes to a gratifying read. I can recommend The Devils’ Cradle to anyone who likes a suspense thriller that keeps the reader on the edge coupled with a lovely contemporary romance.


The Devil’s Cradle is a compelling, mesmerizing, all to believable story of warped arrogant power and evil corruption. One must root for Nina, Sam, and Case. They are under dogs who have resilient sparks and a love of life. They have hoarded secrets that must be uncovered and told. This is excellent. My whetted curiosity urged me not to lay this story aside. Darcy Daniel is a very capable writer.


It is a story that cannot be put down until the conclusion as we travel her path to a better life. It was quite a ride and I appreciated the ending…not a cookie cutter ending. I look forward to reading more by Darcy…she has a gift.
