Sandy and Ben Tremont have built their dream home in the mountains of the Adirondacks. It glows with warmth on a cold winter night as Sandy waits for her husband and their teenage daughter, Ivy, to come home. The family dynamics have been a bit tense lately as Ivy has hit those "difficult" teen years, but she is determined to make their evening a pleasant, relaxing one. What Sandy doesn't know is that two convicts have escaped the nearby prison and have found their way to her neighborhood and will soon be on their doorstep.
Nick and Harlan have been cellmates for years and have concocted a scheme to escape prison. Nick is the more evil of the two and uses Harlan to execute his deadly plans. But, the pair did not come upon the Tremont home by mistake. There is deep, ugly connection between Sandy and Nick and when it comes to light it threatens to destroy everything Sandy has built with her family. But the immediate concern is for her family. Will the Tremont family survive a night with two escaped convicts?
From almost the first page of As Night Falls the author creates this vivid world that plays like a movie in your head. Almost from the beginning I was trying to cast the movie in my head. Who will play Sandy? Who will play Ben? Jenny Milchman's agent better be shopping this book around Hollywood, because it is a movie I would definitely watch. The author's descriptions so vivid that it was borderline terrifying. I loved Sandy and her way of trying to keep things from escalating, yet still trying to find ways to get them to safety. Throughout the book there are a few chapters that explains where Sandy came from and how she got to where she is today. In some ways I think that her family history was more jaw-dropping than what was happening in present day. As the story is catapulting to it's conclusion you find your pulse racing and your heart pounding and you are desperate for Sandy and her family to be safe. It is the ultimate thrill-ride!
Bottom line - As Night Falls breathes life back into the old "page-turner" moniker. I truly found myself so engrossed and on the edge of my seat and I could not wait to see what happened next. Now I can't wait to see it on the big screen.
