When Night Comes


Title:  When Night Comes
Author:  Dan Walsh
Pages:  346
Year:  2014
Publisher:  Bainbridge Press
My rating is 5+ out of 5 stars.
What a thriller!  I have read other works of Dan Walsh and enjoyed them too.  When I saw the cover of When Night Comes, I must say I was highly intrigued!  Then when I began reading, wow!  The story can be called mystery, thriller, suspense and high octane tension and all of that would be true!  Set in a small town, an upscale private college a student turns up dead, but one look at the victim and it is easy to see something weird is going on!
The further I read the book the deeper the mystery became along with a higher body count.  The test subjects, though they didn’t know they were being sued, had dreams that were very lifelike.  In fact, they could recall everything they experienced no matter how horrifying, scary or weird it felt.  The only person who could attest to the drugs effect was a well-known author who was on campus to give some lectures on history as well as finish his latest novel.  What he got was more than he bargained for with a possible romance so different from his last experience.
When Night Comes kept my eyes glued to the pages as action ramped up and the wonder of how the mystery would be solved was drawing closer.  Part of the cast of characters was former agency man and a doctor who not only forgot his Hippocratic Oath but only saw the end result in dollar signs; no one else mattered.
The hardest part about finishing a great story like this is just that, the end.  I have no idea what Dan Walsh plans next or is working on currently, but I hope he brings on more suspense type tales that engage the reader as thoroughly as this one did.  The interesting part was when Jack, who was the lecturer/author, would dream it was always in the WWII era.  History has a way of coming alive for those of us who weren’t around when it happened and reading it in a novel is a little more exciting than simply a textbook.  So please don’t pass up this wonderful work of fiction!  It captivates without scaring the audience.  I don’t want to be scared; I want to be drawn in to the tale and then share what I think with other readers.  If you know of someone who likes mysteries, history or even suspense books, here is one to give as a gift because they won’t be disappointed!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
