A collection of four stories by Peter Crowther.
On a windswept corner of Manhattan, just a stone's throw from the weathered facade of the legendary Chelsea Hotel, there's a small two-flight walkdown bar called The Land at the End of the Working Day. Stop in and rest awhile.... You'll meet the most fascinating people.
First, the flash. A glare of light, just before dawn, followed by utter darkness. A vast blanketing nothingness that covers the whole Earth. Then, the disappearances begin. Friends and strangers alike, swallowed by the darkness…. A lucky few are returned, but they are altered, changed. For the people of Jesman’s Bend, it feels like the end of the world. But this is only the very start.
