Chilling New Suspense -- Night Fall

If you have read any of Nancy Mehl's suspense novels -- particularly her Kaely Quinn series -- you know something of her skill in the genre, as well as her ability to draw you in with some out-of-the-box story elements. Well, she has done it again with Night Fall, the first book in her Quantico Files series.

The characters -- good guys, bad guys, those guys you aren't sure about -- are what move this story at a pace that makes it hard to put down. Like any good suspense, there are hints and questions about "whodunit" that come at various spots along the way. But you just might find some twists near the end of the story that you didn't see coming. 

There is a genuine and well-done element of faith development woven throughout the story. Also important to the movement of the story is the research by the author into realistic law enforcement and medical details.

I highly recommend Night Fall to fans of great inspirational fiction, and I look forward to more to come in this series.

Thanks to the author and her publisher for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book

For any little boy or girl who hears the Train Man speak,
Who feels his rancid breath caress their pretty cheek,
Must close their eyes, pretend to sleep, and very softly pray,
Or else the evil Train Man may carry them away.

Finally free of her troubled upbringing, Alex Donovan is able to live out her childhood dream of working for the FBI. But soon after she becomes a member of the FBI's elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, authorities in Missouri contact them about bodies found on freight trains--all killed in the same way.

Alex never expected to be forced to confront her past in this new job, but she immediately recognizes the graffiti messages the killer is leaving on the train cars. When the BAU sends her to gather information about the messages from her aunt in Wichita, Kansas, Alex is haunted by the struggles she thought she'd left behind forever.

In a race against time to solve the case and recover a deadly virus sample the killer intends to spread, Alex must face how far she'll go--and what she's willing to risk--to put a stop to the Train Man.
