Anchor and investigative journalist for WSMV-TV in Nashville, Jeremy Finley’s debut thriller explores what happens to people’s lives when our world intersects with the unexplainable. “The lights took him.” When the seven-year-old grandson of a US senator vanishes in the woods behind his home, the only witness is his older brother, who whispers, “The lights took him,” and then never speaks again. As the FBI and National Guard launch a massive search, the boys’ grandmother Lynn Roseworth fears only she knows the truth. But coming forward would ruin her family and her husband’s political career. In the late 1960s, before she became the quiet wife of a politician, Lynn was a secretary in the astronomy department at the University of Illinois. It was there where she began taking mysterious messages for one of the professors, messages from people desperate to find their missing loved ones who vanished into beams of light. Determined to find her beloved grandson and expose the truth, she must return to the work she once abandoned to unravel the existence of a place long forgotten by the world. It is there, buried deep beneath the bitter snow and the absent memories of its inhabitants, where her grandson may finally be found. But there are forces that wish to silence her. And Lynn will find how far they will go to stop her and how the truth about her own forgotten childhood could reveal the greatest mystery of all time. The Darkest Time of Night is fast-paced debut full of suspense and government cover-ups, perfect for thriller and supernatural fans alike.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A gripping and graceful thriller that conjures moody atmosphere and haunting circumstances into a rich read…Will have you turning pages—and turning up the lights.” Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author
“A top notch, scary, and all-too-real debut with Hollywood written all over it. Thrilling speculative fiction at its finest.” J. T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author
“A delightful mystery with a sci-fi twist that makes the unbelievable seem totally plausible. Fasten your seat belt, lock your doors, and don’t go into the woods!” Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author
“Outstanding…Finley’s complex portrayal of his heroic lead will carry readers through plot developments that would come across as unconvincing in the hands of a lesser writer. X-Files fans will be enthralled.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“With a twisty surprise on every page, this seamlessly written and captivating thriller is edgy, unique, and incredibly thought-provoking. Jeremy Finley is a star.” Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark Award winning author
“An absolute must for anyone who has enjoyed The X-Files…The Darkest Time of Night combines science fiction and mystery with family drama and wins on all fronts.” F. Paul Wilson, author of The God Gene
“From the first page, I was hooked on Jeremy Finley’s action-packed thriller. Tension crackles, mysteries abound, and conspiracies escalate in this crisply-written and imaginative novel. As the indomitable heroines (think Thelma and Louise) race against time and UFOs to find a missing child, Finley’s unerring sense of pacing and suspense will make you read far into the darkest time of night.” Ann Weisgarber, author of The Personal History of Rachel DuPree
