“An exhilarating emotional roller-coaster ride.”
Washington Post

“Haunting, beautifully-written, and heart-wrenching.”
—Harlan Coben

With his shattering, extraordinarily affecting debut novel, Light of Day, author Jamie M. Saul made a powerful, incontrovertible statement: a major American writer had arrived on the literary scene. The author of The First Warm Evening of the Year, Saul mesmerizes with the unforgettable story of a small-town Midwestern professor struggling to come to terms with a devastating tragedy and the strange and terrible mystery at its core.
