Darkness Descends, the crime thriller by Scott Frank (aka Scott D Welch) is available on Kindle or as a quality paperback edition.
New York Times bestselling author, Clive Cussler, said this: “I truly enjoyed it. A real spellbinder with a multitude of twists and turns through a labyrinth of intrigue. A read not easily forgotten…a timeless tale of suspense.”
Two weeks prior to graduation Chris Walker, high school senior and state champion in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, jogs by a 7-Eleven store and hears a sound in the alley. Curious, he slows and, while witnessing what he believes to be a murder, accidentally kicks a can. He is spotted and immediately turns and runs, narrowly escaping.
He does not know what to do or where to go until events force him to confront his innermost principles, and corresponding fears, and what follows becomes a cat and mouse game leading the police into a mountain community in a desperate attempt to free the town’s mayor, who had been kidnapped as part of a master plan devised by the two men Chris had seen earlier.
