AUTHOR: Dan Walsh
Jack Turner comes back to Culpepper to give a series of lectures for his old history professor. Within days, he starts having bizarre experiences at night. Like he's traveling back in time, experiencing the epic events in his lectures firsthand. He has no control over these experiences and can't make them stop.
Joe Boyd thought he'd left big city crime back in Pittsburgh when he took a detective job in Culpepper, Georgia, a sleepy southern college town. His peaceful life ends when two students turn up dead in two weeks. The coroner is saying natural causes, but something doesn't add up.
Rachel Cook, a teaching assistant at Culpepper, can't believe Jack is back in her life again. She's had a crush on him since she was fourteen, but Jack never knew. He instantly seems attracted to her, but she can tell...something is deeply troubling him.
Watching all this from a distance is Nigel Avery. He's certain this experiment's about to unravel. It'll be his job to tie up all the loose ends when it does.
When Night Comes is the first Dan Walsh novel I’ve read, but I daresay it won’t be the last. From the first line, I was hooked, and the tension didn’t let up until after I’d turned the last page. This is not a soothing bedtime story!
The nightmares afflicting Jack Turner are filled with war scenes, and they’re more than dreams. But why, and how? And why are two college students dead with no obvious cause? Those are the mysteries that haunt Jack Turner and Detective Joe Boyd.
Author Dan Walsh creates realistic characters, strange plots, and a truly suspenseful story. I was given an e-copy of this book by the author, and in return I offer my honest opinion. When Night Comes earns four stars, and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good suspense story.
