For some people, the night is a cloak, helping them to hide. For others, it's a bright light, exposing things better left unseen. The lives of Cam Gallagher and Nick Hendryx have taken separate courses; their roads will cross and cross again, with increasing threat, in the nights they begin to share. With perfect pacing and keen psychological insight, Bill Pronzini proves yet again that his ability to weave a novel of suspense is unsurpassed. Distinctive, chilling, and with never a false note, he peels away the layers of his characters' lives until they finally stand exposed, with nothing but the night between them.

Pronzini pulls readers' strings like the expert he is, keeping them unsure of whose side to take and whom to believe (Cam doesn't remember the accident).
