Review: Don’t Go Down There by Kiersten Modglin


Release date: February 28, 2023

Genre: Mystery/Thriller


Spencer Edwards has a beautiful wife, two perfect children, and a sinister secret locked in his basement…

When Andi Edwards discovers her husband isn’t where he’s supposed to be and isn’t answering her calls or texts, a flurry of scenarios races through her mind.

Is he hurt?
Is he cheating?
Is he dead?

The truth, she soon finds out, is so much worse than she could’ve imagined.

As she struggles to make sense of her new and chilling reality, she must decide whether to stand by the man she loves and help protect him or walk away and let him pay for his sins.

With time running out, the secret in the basement becomes more dangerous, and the spine-chilling truth becomes clear: if she makes the wrong decision, she stands to lose much more than her marriage.

When their best laid plans come back to haunt them, what will Spencer and Andi be willing to sacrifice to survive?


This will be even trickier than usual to review and I say that every single time I write a KMod review, but it’s true! The whole plot is based on what is in the basement and it’s obviously a must to keep that a secret. But it’s a really good secret and what is down there has the power to change Andi and Spencer’s lives forever. There were some really solid and surprising twists here, especially as things escalated and got closer to the end. I didn’t see them coming and that’s always so fun as an avid thriller reader. If you like juicy and fast paced domestic thrillers this was a good one!

Overall rating: 4.5/5
