"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. When four-year-old William 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. With these words, the boys' grandmother Lynn Roseworth fears only she knows the truth. But coming forward would ruin her family and her husband's politicalcareer. As Lynn and her best friend Roxy revisit the secrets of her long-buried past to find clues that will lead to William, they'll get ensnared in a much larger conspiracy. The truth is hidden for a reason, and not even a grandmother's love may be enough to save her grandson from what is coming for them all. Author Jeremy Finley was inspired to write this story after interviewing so many families of missing people for stories and seeing how far people will go to try to find their loved ones. He combined this experience with that of his mother-in-law, who was a secretary in an astronomy department, like Lynn, for professors who researched UFOs and were featured in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". The Darkest Time of Night is fast-paced debut full of suspense and government cover-ups, perfect for thriller and alien fans alike"—
