A riveting gothic novel of mystery and horror — from bestselling and award-winning novelist Douglas Clegg — The Hour Before Dark begins with a terrifying event...When Nemo Raglan's father is murdered in one of the most vicious killings of recent years, Nemo must return to the New England island he thought he had 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, author of Ghost Story and, with Stephen King, The Talisman."...An eerie psychological tale of supernatural horror that builds suspense gradually as the characters slowly peel back the layers of their past and face the terrors of their shared childhood. Clegg approaches horror with a stark and vital simplicity that is utterly convincing. Fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz will appreciate this atmospheric gem." — Library Journal"I was compelled to keep turning the pages as fear...raised my pulse to racing level from cover to cover." — DarkEchoHere Comes a Candle to Light You To Bed...As Nemo unravels the mysteries of his past and a terrible night of childhood, he witnesses something unimaginable...and sees the true face of evil...while Burnley Island comes to know the unspeakable horror that grows in darkness.From the Publishers Weekly Starred Review:"Suspenseful and relentlessly spooky, told in economical prose yet peopled by characters as fully realized as one's own blood kin, this is at once the most artful and most mainstream tale yet from one of horror's brightest lights.""... A dark,psychologically astute novel that pushes beyond the horror genreand into raw suspense...THE HOUR BEFORE DARK is a powerful and deeply engaging novel of disturbance and redemption...highly recommended to any reader who enjoys Stephen King, Dean Koontz, or Pat Conroy." - The BookReporter."In his finest novel to date, Clegg establishes himself firmly as one of the leading authors in the horror genre...Hold onto your chair; THE HOUR BEFORE DARK is a powerhouse of a read. - Cemetery Dance Magazine."A gripping read that is refreshingly character-driven, yet still produces a palpable sense of dread." - Fangoria
