When four-year-old William disappears from the woods behind his house in Nashville, the only witness is his seven-year-old brother who says "the lights took him" and then refuses to speak again. William’s grandmother, Lynn Roseworth, the wife of a senator and potential VP candidate is afraid she knows what those words mean. They are a link to her past--a past she has never talked about with her family, and one she fears will destroy her entire family.
The Darkest Time of Night is a truly remarkably written story. It is fast-paced and suspenseful...a thriller that is a combination of science fiction and government cover-up. Once you start, you can’t put this one down. A little bit scary, a whole lot heartrending: a complex plot, and many brave people make this a book that will make you question what might or might not actually exist.
