In the first book of the Frank Quinn series known as Darker than Night, the story begins when the muderer known as The Night Prowler turns a city that does not sleeps into one town that is now kept awake by terrifying ordeals. The Night prowler, gets into couple’s homes unseen and in an unsuspecting move, the Night prowler lingers around until the perfect time and moment arrives when he kills his victims and takes their lives while leaving them with gifts.

However, the killer seems to grow bolder and horns worst fears are about to to be confirmed.Since some where in the dark , there is a night spider who is prepared to take a new victim, and it appears that the killer is no stranger. The whole story is now about race against time .Thomas has no choice but to snare this psychopath, and to beat him at his own the killer at his own game or simply die trying.
