Middle of the Night - a man tries to figure out what happened to his missing childhood friend in this tense thriller.

Ethan Marsh continues to have a recurring dream that transports him back to the night in 1994 when his best friend Billy Barringer was abducted when they were sleeping in a tent behind his home in the Princeton area of New Jersey. Ethan wishes he could recall who took ten-year-old Billy. The case was never solved, and Billy was never found. After his parents move to Florida and his marriage ends, Ethan returns to his childhood home on Hemlock Circle, still haunted by the loss of his friend. When a series of unexplained events start occurring at night, Ethan is finally ready to try and figure out what happened to Billy.

Author Riley Sager sets his latest thriller in a seemingly safe, affluent suburban neighborhood and turns it upside down. Middle of the Night is a gripping mystery thriller with a touch of horror. Do we ever really know our neighbors? And what about the creepy and secretive Hawthorne Institute located at the other end of the woods? Sager has again delivered lots of psychological suspense, good twists and in this new novel, some poignant moments. 

Rated 4 out of 5 stars.
