From Michael David Ares comes a dark new audiobook that will haunt listeners FEAR THE DAY In the near future, patches of the northern hemisphere have been shrouded in years of darkness from a nuclear winter, and the water level has risen in the North Atlantic. The island of Manhattan has lost its outer edges to flooding and is now ringed by a large seawall. The darkness and isolation have allowed crime and sin to thrive in the never-ending shadows of the once great city, and when the sun finally begins to reappear, everything gets worse. A serial killer cuts a bloody swath across the city during the initial periods of daylight, and a violent panic sweeps through crowds on the streets. The Manhattan police, riddled with corruption and apathy, are at a loss. That's when the Mayor recruits Jon Phillips, a small-town Pennsylvania cop who had just single-handedly stopped a high-profile serial killer in his own area, and flies him into the insanity of this new New York City. The young detective is partnered with a shady older cop and begins to investigate the crimes amidst the vagaries of a twenty-four hour nightlife he has never experienced before. Soon realizing that he was chosen for reasons other than what he was told, Jon is left with no one to trust and forced to go on the run in the dark streets, and below them in the maze of the underground. Against all odds Jon still hopes that he can save his own life, the woman of his dreams, and maybe even the whole city before the arrival of the mysterious and dreaded event that has come to be known as.. DAYFALL.

Professional reviews

"For the past 10 years, Manhattan and most of the Northern Hemisphere have suffered under perpetual darkness. The city rots as sin and corruption run rampant. As daylight finally begins to break through, a serial killer's rampage throws the city into chaos. Narrator Paul Heitsch portrays small-town cop Jon Phillips, who attempts to stop the serial killer and avoid becoming entrenched in a deep conspiracy. Heitsch narrates with a methodical tone that amps up the tension. He lends Phillips a neutral tone befitting the calm hero and gives lively accents and verbal tics to a colorful cast. Heitsch's narration and energetic characterizations are contrasted with the story's gruesome violence and explosive action to great effect. J.M.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
