The "spellbinding story-spinner" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)), and New York Times-bestselling author of Tampa Burn returns with a stunning novel of ecoterror and personal revenge.
It started when Doc Ford got a call from his old friend Frieda Matthews; her reclusive biologist brother, Jobe, wasn't answering the phone - could Doc check up on him? Ford can't think of a reason not to, but soon he will think of a hundred. NOt only will it be one of the worst scenes he has ever encountered, the consequences will draw him into the heart of a nightmare. A catastriphe is coming to Florida, and just maybe there is something Ford can do about it - but he doesn't know how or where or when...or even if he is already too late.
Brimming with the remarkable prose and rich atmosphere that have won White so many fans already, and featuring some of the best characters in suspense fiction today, Dead of Night is White's biggest thriller yet.
Later, my conscience would play the inevitable game of "What if..." What if I had stopped by Jobe's home on Friday morning in stead of Sunday night? What i I hadn't interrupted the two people who were alternately interrogating and beating him? Would he have lived? Or would he have died? And what would have happened to him?
