The White Night, the follow up to The Dark Man and second book in the Graveyard Classified series by Desmond Doane (or Ernie Lindsey, if you prefer), will grab hold of you and won’t let go…ever.
Unlike his debut Graveyard novel, The Dark Man, which is told primarily from Ford Atticus Ford’s perspective, The White Night follows Ford as well as his old partner, Mike Long, on two separate, but eerily connected adventures.
Ford Atticus Ford, on his almost self-deprecating journey to redeem himself after forcing a young, innocent girl to her doom, bumps into one of his toughest critics and is quickly pulled into a fight for not only her life, but also his own.
Mike Long, who is in the midst of fixing his on-the-rocks marriage, meets a very active woman, who just so happens to have a ghost problem and as luck would have it, Mike just so happens to be a retired ghost hunter. Score! But, his excitement at meeting this mysterious beauty is short-lived and soon finds himself eating a nice big ghost-turd sandwich.
Doane/Lindsey does a fantastic job of interweaving the two storylines and by the end of the book both characters had grown significantly. Doane/Lindey’s style, which I’ve come to enjoy very much, makes this book a supremely enjoyable read and will keep you turning each haunting page to the terrifying end.
If you like ghost stories that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, you definitely need to get your hands on this book. At one point I felt compelled to grab a baseball bat just to go to the bathroom. I had nightmares about the black-eyed kids for weeks.
So, check it out, Doane/Lindsey never fails to impress and entertain! Leave a review of your own, too, authors love those!
