STEALING NIGHT by HWA Member Peter Giglio
Author: Peter Giglio
Jack has nothing to live for, nothing worth dying for, no one to love, nothing to lose; but that all changes when his sisterâ s life unravels and he takes guardianship of Nora, his eleven-year-old niece. Looking out for her fast becomes the only thing he has ever done right. Driven to move his family from the bleak flatlands, to give his niece a chance at a better life, Jack takes the only job he can find, washing cars for minimum wage, saving every penny.
When an old friend steps back into Jackâ s life, a joyride leads to an explosive night of terror and betrayal.
Now Jack must stand firm for those he loves as he struggles between the promising new life in bloom and the dark secret of a dead girl from California.
Stealing Night is a riveting exploration of our best and worst angels, the familial ties that bend but never break, the decisions we make, and the high cost of hesitation in the face of evil.
