Author Event - As Night Falls with Jenny Milchman in Conversation with Catriona McPherson

The Avid Reader is happy to welcome back author Jenny Milchman for a conversation with local fellow suspense author and Sisters in Crime President Catriona McPherson regarding Milchman's latest suspense novel, As Night Falls on Saturday, August 8th at 7:30 p.m.

In her isolated home in the shadowy Adirondacks, Sandy Tremont prepares dinner after a fight with her daughter, Ivy. Upstairs, 15 year-old Ivy has every right to be angry tonight. Sandy’s husband, Ben, a wilderness guide, arrives late to find a home simmering with unease.

After almost 20 years as prison cellmates, Nick and Harlan have become a deadly team with Nick as the mind and the will and Harlan as the muscle. They are desperate, on the run, bloodstained and determined to leave no loose ends or witnesses. As they approach a secluded house and look through its windows to see a cozy domestic scene, Nick knows that here he will find what he’s looking for...before he disappears forever.

Opening the door to the Tremont home, Nick brings not only a legacy of terror but a secret that threatens to drag Sandy with him into the darkness.

In a Starred Review, Shelf Awareness calls Milchman's novel “electric” and adds that “Milchman’s talent for building atmosphere will have readers wondering if they’re shivering from the story’s excitement or northern New York’s winter cold.”
