|Plot Summary of In the Night Room|
Random House, Oct 2004, 21.95, 330 pp.
Willy Patrick should be ecstatic as she has found love again with wealthy businessman Michael Faber especially since he has moved her into his mini-mansion in Hendersonia, New Jersey. Still the young adult author has some issues for instance she has to fight herself from busting into a warehouse where she feels her dead daughter waits for her. Defeating the compulsion, Willy returns to her new home only to find pictures of her deceased spouse in a box in Michael's study, a room she never entered before.
Stunned, she flees to New York. She enters a Barnes & Noble bookstore where horror author Timothy Underhill is providing a reading. Timothy's life has been unsettled of late since he saw his dead sister's ghost and communicated by email with a being from another dimension. When Timothy sees Willy, he recognizes her as the key person to fight evil waiting for them in the house of a deceased serial killer in their hometown of Millhaven.
