In bestselling author Dianne Emley’s chilling new paranormal thriller, a beautiful woman’s romantic past comes back to haunt her in the form of an otherworldly visitor seeking justice.
Gorgeous and successful, Rory Langtry seemed to have it all. Daughter of a movie star and sister of a supermodel, Rory was engaged to sexy artist, Junior Lara. But her bright future went dark one terrible, bloody night that left her sister dead and the accused murderer—Junior—in an extended coma.
Now, five years later, Rory appears to have put the past behind her. She has a wonderful new fiancé and heads a successful cosmetics company. Yet dark secrets threaten. Across town, Junior lies close to death but before he departs he seeks to clear his name.
It starts with a feeling. It turns into a vision. Soon Rory is having sensations that only Junior could experience—from the horrifying to the erotic. Then she learns details about the awful night that only Junior could know, newfound knowledge with potentially fatal consequences. When another act of violence rocks her family, Rory plunges deeper into the unsolved mystery, led by an inexplicable visitor to a dangerous time and place where all will be revealed at last. But until then, Junior will not let her go.
The Night Visitor wields the slightly paranormal tale of the twisted and tragic murder of a young socialite supermodel. Her sister’s fiancé is accussed of the crime and has been withering away in a hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. They’ve never been able to put him on trial for his crimes because of his condition. Both families have suffered. Flash forward 5 years later, their families are still suffering as Junior, the expected murderer, condition worsens. But, the crime isn’t as clear cut as they once thought. Junior’s former fiancé and Anya’s own sister begins to suffer adverse effects from Junior’s brothers attack. She can hear and feel Junior’s thoughts and she sets out on a mission to solve her sister’s murder.
The Night Visitor wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but with that kind of name you’d expect a vampire theme to the novel. However, while I was surprised at the story, I found that the mystery and suspense of the story is what hooked me. The outcome wasn’t expected at all, which is another major plus for me. I come from a forensics background and when a crime novel can stump me, that’s quite an accomplishment on the author’s part. The concept between the connection between comatose Junior and Rory. It’s an intriguing concept that was developed beautifully. The Night Visitor is a must read for mystery and suspense fans that like just a little bit of paranormal added to the mix.
