Thank you for joining me on this Mystery Monday. Tonight’s Gem is set in the Big Apple. A tale of sisters, dysfunctional families and discovery.
Author Luanne Rice’s 30th novel, Little Night is a hard told tale of two sisters, Anne and Clare. In trying to protect Anne from an abusive husband, chosen in the most reckless of ways, Clare goes to prison for a period of time. Anne’s prison is of her own making as she chooses to stay with Frederick, an unbelievably cold and controlling artist. He moves Anne and their children to Denmark during Clare’s prison term and they lose touch.
Fast forward 15 years and Anne’s daughter shows up on Clare’s New York City doorstep. This is where the real Mystery begins and you won’t be sorry you stay to unravel it.
Little Night will have you up into the night. Enjoy.
