In As Night Falls, Sandy Tremont is cooking dinner for her family when the front door bangs open and two men burst in. They’re clad head-to-toe in county-issued gear, revealing prison jumpsuits underneath. Nick and Harlan have put in enough good time to be given emergency road detail, taking the opportunity to be outside as a chance to escape. But this is no ordinary home invasion, and as the convicts take their prisoners—incapacitating Sandy’s husband, Ben, and isolating the couple’s daughter, Ivy—the shifting landscape of Sandy’s terror shows all that is at stake. For Nick is her brother, the son her parents loved and blindly doted on while ignoring young Sandy. Now, if Sandy is to save the family she loves, she must face the one she tried to leave behind, and a brother who was supposed to remain behind bars.
