“A dark and rainy night. Travelers with secrets. An inn that offers comfort. Or does it?
In Author J. L. Hayes’ novella, DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT, we meet some interesting characters brought together by a stormy night. The Black Raven Inn becomes a refuge for brothers Jintaro and Kaorin, along with two partners from an entertainment troupe and other travelers seeking shelter. Told from different point of view characters, we learn a little about each of them, where they’re headed and why. There is also a mystery about a locked room that contains riches, or so it is believed. Oh, and there is a murder to add suspense to the plot.
DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT brings together a mixture of different personalities, each with a story to tell. This is a book about successes and failures and making choices. There are a lot of characters to keep up with, and I sometimes got confused. But that’s just me. If you read the story on a dark and stormy night, be sure to turn on the lights and lock the doors. You don’t want any unexpected guests arriving, now do you?
