Audible Editor Reviews

"Don’t play it after dark" is what characters say about an eerie children’s game that drives the plot of The Hour Before Dark. Of course, the same might be said about this audiobook, in which narrator A. T. Chandler brings a gravely intensity to Douglas Clegg’s supernatural thriller. Fans of Stephen King-style horror will like this character-rich novel, in which Nemo Raglan must conjure his family’s demons to solve the mystery of his father’s grisly murder. Horror fans looking for schlock or geysers of blood may get a little restless at this book’s pace, but for those who like their suspense smart and slow, The Hour Before Dark will scare long after this audiobook stops playing.

Publisher's Summary

There are rules to every game. You must never play the Dark Game after sunset - it becomes real then. It takes you over...

The Hour Before Dark is a riveting gothic suspense novel of supernatural horror from best-selling and award-winning novelist Douglas Clegg - author of The Children's Hour and Halloween Man.

When his father is murdered in one of the most vicious killings of recent years, Nemo Raglan must return to the New England island he thought he'd escaped for good...and the shadowy home called Hawthorn.

"Douglas Clegg has become the new star in horror fiction, and The Hour Before Dark is his best and most exciting novel to date. This is pure imagination, and it is wearing speed skates." (Peter Straub, New York Times best-selling author of Ghost Story and, with Stephen King, The Talisman.)
