Missing. Fans of science fiction thrillers are those readers most likely to enjoy the debut novel by Jeremy Finley titled, The Darkest Time of Night. The action starts with a child gone missing. Before long, we learn that more than one child is missing. Finley builds the story one element at a time, postponing my reckoning with a less than willing suspension of disbelief. By the time the story turned sci-fi, I was engaged in the plot and with the characters and wanted to stay with the story to the end. After learning what happened to the missing, I was fully committed and enjoyed the novel to the end, despite nagging incredulity.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
