"The lights took him."
When the seven-year-old grandson of U.S. Senator vanishes in
the woods behind his home, the only witness is his older
brother who whispers, “The lights took him,” and then never
As the FBI and National Guard launch a massive search, the
boys' grandmother Lynn Roseworth fears only she knows the
truth. But coming forward would ruin her family and her
husband’s political career.
In the late 1960s, before she became the quiet wife of a
politician, Lynn was a secretary in the astronomy department
at the University of Illinois. It was there where she began
taking mysterious messages for one of the professors;
messages from people desperate to find their missing loved
ones who vanished into beams of light.
Determined to find her beloved grandson and expose the
truth, she must return to the work she once abandoned to
unravel the existence of a place long forgotten by the
world. It is there, buried deep beneath the bitter snow and
the absent memories of its inhabitants, where her grandson
may finally be found.
But there are forces that wish to silence her. And Lynn will
find how far they will go to stop her, and how the truth
about her own forgotten childhood could reveal the greatest
mystery of all time.
Jeremy Finley’s debut The Darkest Time of Night was
hailed by People magazine and the NY Post as one of
the best books of the summer of 2018, was named to the
Lariat list as one of the top 25 outstanding books of the
year, and described by NPR as "a hugely satisfying, while
still mystifying, suspense novel."
