Publisher's Summary

If you look hard enough into the history of anything, you will discover things that seem to be connected but are not. So claims a character in Frederick Reiken's wonderful, surprising novel, which seems, in fact, to be determined to prove just the opposite. How else to explain the threads that link a middle-aged woman on vacation in Florida with a rock-and-roll singer visiting her comatose brother in Utah, where he's been transported after a motorcycle injury in Israel, where he works with a man whose long-lost mother, in a retirement community in New Jersey, recognizes him in a televised report about an Israeli-Palestinian skirmish? And that's not the half of it.

In Day for Night, critically acclaimed writer Reiken spins an unlikely and yet utterly convincing story about people lost and found. They are all refugees from their own lives or history's cruelties, yet they wind up linked to each other in compelling and unpredictable ways that will keep you guessing until the very end.

    "Good story, bad narrator"

    This is one instance when I wish I had read the book in paper form rather than listening to it. The performance, especially the male narrator (George K. Wilson) really detracts from an interesting and compelling set of intertwined stories. Wilson reads so slowly that I checked my iPod to see if it was set on "slow" instead of "normal". Nope, it was just Mr. Wilson, who reads every syllable with plodding deliberation. I love audiobooks, and in many cases I find the story is enhanced by the performance. I'm posting this as a warning! On the other hand, it works very well as a sleep-inducing reading; just don't drive while listening!

    I'm trying to wean myself and learn to function without earbuds for more than ten minutes at a time. It hasn't been easy. I lose balance...

    "horrible."

    Sometimes I think to myself, self - why don't you write a book? And especially when i get one like this that is just poor in plot, style and entertainment value. There's a little of everything, and it's not appetizing...cult, multiple personality, nevermind... just skip it.
