Allen Eskens for "The Deep Dark Descending"

Join us in the store on Wednesday, October 4th for a reading and signing with Allen Eskens, author of "The Deep Dark Descending." It's a thrilling and engrossing read, and you don't want to miss this event. 

Homicide Detective Max Rupert never fully accepted his wife's death, even when he believed that a reckless hit and run driver was the cause. But when he learns that in fact she was murdered, he devotes himself to hunting down her killers. Most of his life he had thought of himself as a decent man. But now he's so consumed with thoughts of retribution that he questions whether he will take that last step and enact the vengeance he longs for.

On a frozen lake near the US-Canadian border, he wrestles with a decision that could change his life forever, as his hatred threatens to turn him into the kind of person he has spent a career bringing to justice.
