This Week's Spotlight is on fiction stranger than truth

They say “Truth is stranger than fiction,” but this suspense novel sure comes close.  It’s about a prison breakout in upstate New York and the prisoners’ plan to reach the Canadian border.  The breakout is nowhere near as high-tech as the recent real one was, but the escape to Canada was even more sophisticated.  As Night Falls by award winning mystery writer, Jennie Milchman, follows two escaped convicts as they hi-jack a car and drive to the home of a wilderness guide to force him to give them all the gear and directions they need to cross the border.  The suspense never lets up as the chapters alternate from current times to the warped childhood of the escaped killer twenty some years previous.  The wilderness guide, his wife and daughter are held hostage until the snow lets up and the convicts can head north—it makes you wonder how the residents along the escape route of the real convicts must have been terrified before the escapees were caught.  As Night Falls—fiction stranger than truth!  You’ll find it at Otto’s, a booklovers’ paradise in the heart of Downtown Williamsport
