When Night Comes
By 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.
You can read the first chapter here.
Jack may be an expert on military history, but he was getting more than he bargained fo. How on earth did he end up at Pearl Harbor, and how can he get out of this nightmare world and back to Georgia and his normal life?
That’s just the beginning. As they say, the plot thickens. I can’t really go there, because I’m afraid I’ll get carried away and give away the plot. What I can say is that this book is definitely different from all the other Dan Walsh books I’ve read.
Intrigue. Suspense. Dead bodies. Adrenalin rushes. This book will grab you and not let go. I planned to just read a few chapters after dinner, but I couldn’t stop there. I HAD to finish the entire book.
I’ve enjoyed all the Dan Walsh books I’ve read – at least nine or ten. This one is much different, and I really liked it. In my book, he’s a master of both kinds of books. I like both the “weepers” and the “edge of the chair” books. Please keep writing both, Mr. Walsh.
One more thing. Can you please write a little faster?
