Face the Night: A Novel

She has an eerie gift for drawing faces. Will one terrifying vision tear apart everything she loves?

Ohio, 1987. Adriana Krause hasn’t slept in weeks. Desperate for work to keep her three-year-old son out of her powerful father’s controlling clutches, her vivid illustrations land her a job as a police sketch artist. But the only image she can draw is the shockingly mangled visage from her recurring nightmare.

With her disturbed nights spiraling into violent episodes, Adriana’s unique talents pull her into the tight-knit small-town’s buried secrets. And now fearing she’ll lose her little boy to the madness sucking her down, she’s convinced that the monstrous likeness she can’t stop scrawling holds the answer to a brutal crime.

Can this struggling mother solve a dark puzzle before her family is destroyed?

Face the Night is a bone-chilling supernatural thriller. If you like complex characters, lived-in settings, and tension dripping from every page, then you’ll be transfixed by Alan Lastufka’s gripping tale.
