Hold Back the Night
Three unsuspecting women. Two escaped convicts. One shocking night of escalating terror.
From acclaimed crime writer and law enforcement veteran Sean Lynch . . .
HOLD BACK THE NIGHT
It begins with a spark. A simple act of carelessness that ignites the autumn grass of the Sierra Nevadas. In minutes, the flames spread. A raging wildfire sweeps down the mountain, engulfing a van from the local prison—giving two chained convicts a chance to escape . . .
Two desperate men. Psychologically disturbed. Extremely dangerous.
In Farnham County live three very different women. Marjorie Guthrie, a wealthy suburban housewife fleeing an abusive marriage; Mary Hernandez, her troubled, rebellious sister; and Leanne Strayer, a young SWAT deputy with a dark past. All three share one thing in common: they are in the wrong place at the wrong time . . .
Today, their worst fears come true. Tonight, the nightmares come home.
