Publisher's Summary

In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast. Though the overnight guests are few and far between - occasional hunters and lake fishermen - Cate always manages to make ends meet with the help of the local jack-of-all-trades, Calvin Harris, who can handle everything from carpentry to plumbing. But Calvin is not what he seems, and Cate's luck is about to run out.One morning, the B&B's only guest inexplicably vanishes, leaving behind his personal effects. A few days later, Cate is shocked when armed men storm the house, demanding the mystery man's belongings. Fearing for her children's lives, Cate agrees to cooperate - until Calvin saves the day, forcing the intruders to scatter into the surrounding woods.The nightmare, however, is just beginning. Cate, Calvin, and their entire community find themselves cut off and alone with no means to call for help as the threat gathers intensity and first blood is drawn.With their fellow residents trapped and the entire town held hostage, Cate and Calvin have no choice but to take the fight to their enemies under the cover of night. While reticent Cal becomes a fearless protector, Cate makes the most daring move of her life...into the very heart of danger.

A surprise

The mini-background does not give the book justice. I really liked the story and have listened to it twice and purchased more of Linda Howard.

Cover of the Night

Huge Linda Howard fan for years. Think I've read everyone of her novels. Wasn't too impressed with this one. Thought the story was good, characters interesting, but started losing interest 1/2 way through. The "bad guys" were almost laughable at their ineptness and then the story became pretty predictable. Not one of her best.
