Publisher's Summary

When retired police detective Joe Heller is called in to investigate what might be Antarctica's first murder, he quickly discovers that winter at McMurdo Station comes with a unique set of challenges: darkness, isolation, and the eccentric behavior of the research facility's 157 inhabitants. But a difficult investigation turns much tougher when all communication with the outside world is suddenly cut off.

While Heller works diligently to reconstruct the scene of the crime, evidence mounts that a pathogenic event could be ravaging the rest of the planet. As night descends, fear mounts, and confusion reigns, the killer strikes again. If this is a global cataclysm, is someone now picking off the human race's few remaining survivors? Is this the end of the world - or just the end of Joe Heller's?

Another offbeat story by Jonathan Stone

First I listened to Moving Day, the story of perfect revenge, which is one of my all time favorite novels. Then came Two for the Show which easily earned 5 stars. Then the wonderful short story Mailman. Then The Teller which started off great and then became insufferable in the second half. And now Days of Night which is a disappointment. My major issue with Days of Night is that fully half of the novel is the protagonist sharing his thoughts in seemingly endless detail. It should have been published as a 4 hour novella to avoid frustrating the listener with irrelevant detain . The story is a nice modern detective murder mystery set at McMurdo Station in Antarctica during the winter. Christopher Lane narrates perfectly.

very slow to start

I'm glad I finished it, but the story was very slow until chapter 20ish. possibly the narrator, and possibly a combination of the narrator and the story

For Puzzle Lovers

Stone places you inside the story, and with a cop's eye view; doggedly chewing on facts and interested, before you even realize how clever the plot or how good the writing.

Good book

We enjoyed the story very much. The only down side was at times there was way to much description about other things and not just the story.

Interesting But

Very interesting plot ruined by too much introspection by mane character. He goes on and on about everything making a boring read

Thought provoking

Keeps you guessing to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed it, easy to listen to narration.
