BOM: Reviews and Reaction

Since LET DARKNESS COME hasn't been out that long, there haven't been too many reviews, but I was thrilled when PW gave it a star. And here are a couple of others I've gleaned from the web:

"This is a super legal thriller with several twists including a terrific look at the DNA chimera issue. The story line is fast-paced and gripping as everyone from the onset believes Erin is guilty, but over time the audience and her attorney begin to wonder if she might be innocent. Angela Hunt provides a winner and sets up what looks like another Briley legal thriller with her apparently on the prosecution side next time." --Harriet Klausner

"As Briley learns more about Erin and her life before meeting her she discovers medical evidence concerning her client that will not only break open the case and change the original direction, but will astound the reader as well. How valid is DNA testing? You will have to read this book to find out just what the author relates. A client who fears for her life and a family who will stop at nothing to see that she pays with her life. What happens will surprise the reader. The twists and turns and the surprise ending will give the reader hope that there are lawyers that will not accept failure as an option. There are people that even though they are set up to lose, will give it everything no matter what. With a well-crafted plot and suspense until the very end, the author leaves us wanting more. Hopefully she will bring Briley back for a sequel to this great novel." --Fran Lewis

"Angela Hunt takes this impossible case and creates some courtroom drama. This is no Perry Mason novel; this is based on potential possibilities. This author always educates.

The writing is first-person narrative and flows. Pages almost turn by themselves. I would enjoy staying in touch with the characters. I do hope to see Briley Lester in another novel. Be sure to grab this one for a good read." --our own Smiling Sally

Several of you have been kind enough to post reviews on and other sites--thank you very much! And my publisher informed me that they have nominated the book for the Edgar Award and the Mary Higgins Clark Award. I'm certainly not holding my breath in anticipation of winning those tough contests, but it was truly an honor to be nominated.

So thank you for your support, and I hope you enjoy the read! Tomorrow: Your questions and my answers! Leave your question in the comments, and I'll be sure to answer it tomorrow.
