About the Book

It was almost dark when i landed...

'There are echoes of Chandler in washed-up journalist Charlie Yates's terse, cynical narration but this is more than a mere pastiche: it's subtle, original and enthralling.' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

Having left Texarkana for the safety of the West Coast, reporter Charlie Yates finds himself drawn back to the South, to Hot Springs, Arkansas, as an old acquaintance asks for his help. This time it's less of a story Charlie's chasing, more of a desperate attempt to do the right thing before it's too late.

Rod Reynolds' exceptional second novel picks up just a few months on from The Dark Inside, and once again displays the feel for place, period and atmosphere which marked out his acclaimed debut.

“Although Rod Reynolds set the bar extraordinarily high for himself with his debut novel, The Dark Inside, it’s fair to say that his second book more than lives up to the promise of its predecessor ... Smart plotting, immaculate research, a tersely precise style and a protagonist with a touch of the knight-errant about him add up to pitch-perfect American noir.”
- Laura Wilson, Guardian
“Set in a 1940s Arkansas haunted by past crimes, evil acts and secret fears, Black Night Falling is noir at its classic best: unsettling, romantic and rippling with tension. Reporter Charlie Yates emerges as one of the most intriguing, complex and likeable characters to have appeared in recent years. Unputdownable.”
- TIM BAKER, author of Fever City
