Product description


"All the Perils of This Night is not a cozy mystery but a dark, complicated thriller, at once shocking, suspenseful, and significant.

The novel features all Elizabeth Cunningham's virtues: propulsive plotting, a rich brew of the religious, magical, and naturalistic, a female-centered story with characters who are sharply delineated, absorbingly developed, and interestingly re-arranged, psychological perception and spiritual aspiration.

Standing strongly on its own, the book is also a sequel. The cast from Murder at the Rummage Sale is back, seven years deeper into the Sixties. It's 1968, the decade's climax, the year of protest, schismatic politics, assassinations, strikes, riots, social change, and much indelible music. Most changed, of course, are the two young people, Katherine and Frankie, who have doubled in age. Fifteen-year-old Katherine Bradley is at the center of the action as both victim and protagonist. She endures trauma, abuse, ordeals, and parental discord; she discovers Aretha Franklin, new friends, a good deal about resilience, love, courage, and herself. She lives out fulfilled fantasies and survives realized nightmares.

The novel's daring trajectory takes us from Katherine's small-town home in upstate New York to the underside of a Sixties London that isn't swinging but frighteningly decadent and corrupt. When Katherine vanishes into this maw, the lives of everyone who loves her are disrupted and transformed.

All the Perils of This Night mixes the public with the intimately private, scandalous revelations with consoling love, the lurid with the pastoral, the adult with the adolescent, and it all reaches a satisfying denouement. In this darker, deeply imagined sequel, Cunningham again offers her readers a richly complex and gratifying experience."----Robert Wexelblatt, author of Hsi-wei Tales, Intuition of the News, etc.

"Elizabeth Cunningham has done something rare and special in mystery writing. Mysteries fall into several sub-genres, such as 'locked-room, ' or 'international thriller, ' or 'courtroom suspense.' Some writers will switch sub-genres in different books. But this is the first time I've ever seen a writer move the same cast of characters to a radically different kind of setting and story. Elizabeth Cunningham has taken the small town cast from Murder At The Rummage Sale, and brought them to a story that is not only on a much larger stage--London in the 1960's, but also to a world that is far darker, more disturbing, with a young woman's life and soul in the balance. Remarkable book."----Rachel Pollack, author of author of The Beatrix Gates

"A smart and twisted literary thriller, one of the best of the year. I dare you to read the first few pages and then try to put this book down!"---- Steve Hamilton, Edgar-winning author of Dead Man Running
