Praise for When Night Comes
"Dan Walsh surprises with his new novel, When Night Comes. This engrossing mystery/thriller takes place in the present day, but with a twist. The main character finds himself going back in time. When he does, as usual, Walsh's historical fiction is spot on. This break from his normal superb Christian fiction proves Walsh is more than one-dimensional." - John M. Wills, New York Journal of Books
"Though Walsh steps into a different genre, fans will not be disappointed. He continues to infuse historical facts into his books, bringing history to life in this character-driven tale. The pace quickens as events unfold, making it challenging for the reader to predict the twists and turns." - 4.5 Stars! RT Book Reviews (Leslie McKee)
Dan holds his own very well in the area of suspense. His writing is tight, the plot well developed, and the villains are totally without conscience. There's even a neat little twist at the end that I never saw coming. Dan is gifted at writing suspense and I hope he gives us more of these stories. Highly recommended to all who enjoy suspense. -- Carole Jarvis, Soul Inspirationz Reviewer
Dan Walsh's first straight suspense novel (after several hugely successful contemporary romances) has a unique premise, and a terrific cover. He drew me into the story, and I wanted to know how things turned out for his characters. When Night Comes is a good suspense novel. However, I was hoping for a little bit more--more twists and turns, more surprises. It was fairly easy to guess where things were going. That's probably because I've read quite a few suspense novels. I do think Dan Walsh's fans will enjoy this book, but if you're looking for a novel that gives you grand twists and clever villains, you might be disappointed. Still, pick it up and see for yourself.
