Summary

Summary

Finalist for the 2019 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Paperback Original

From the critically-acclaimed author of The Day I Died comes a terrifying twist on a locked-room mystery that will keep listeners guessing until the last words.

Only in the dark can she find the truth . . .

Since her husband died, Eden Wallace's life has diminished down to a tiny pinprick, like a far-off star in the night sky. She doesn't work, has given up on her love of photography, and is so plagued by night terrors that she can't sleep without the lights on. Everyone, including her family, has grown weary of her grief. So when she finds paperwork in her husband's effects indicating that he reserved a week at a dark sky park, she goes. She's ready to shed her fear and return to the living, even if it means facing her paralyzing phobia of the dark. But when she arrives at the park, the guest suite she thought was a private retreat is teeming with a group of twenty-somethings, all stuck in the orbit of their old college friendships. Horrified that her get-away has been taken over, Eden decides to head home the next day. But then a scream wakes the house in the middle of the night. One of the friends has been murdered. Now everyone—including Eden—is a suspect.

Everyone is keeping secrets, but only one is a murderer. As mishaps continue to befall the group, Eden must make sense of the chaos and lies to evade a ruthless killer—and she'll have to do it before dark falls…

Editorial Reviews

“A brilliant concept, brilliantly told! Under a Dark Sky is a novel that you simply can’t put down. Populated by living, breathing characters and filled with fresh prose and sharp dialogue, we thrill to spend a harrowing, yet redemptive, getaway with our wonderful protagonist, Eden Wallace. I guarantee this book will resonate with you. Because, let’s face it, aren’t we all afraid of the dark?” Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author
Under a Dark Sky by Lori Rader-Day is an atmospheric and absorbing mystery with an intriguing cast of characters. You’ll want to read this gripping novel with the lights on.” Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author
“Cleverly plotted…A great setting for a murder, and each of Rader-Day’s prickly millennials feels capable of murder—to say nothing of sleep-deprived, near hysterical Eden. Readers will have fun following the subtle clues.” Publishers Weekly
“A tense tale of murder among old friends featuring an evolving protagonist and high-stakes mind games.” Booklist
“Rader-Day juices her young-widow setup with enough soul-searching, menace, and dirty linen to make you think of Mary Higgins Clark with teeth bared.” Kirkus Reviews
“Both an irresistible locked-room puzzler and a finely wrought examination of friendship, love, and loss.” Elizabeth Little, author of Dear Daughter
