A stunning debut novella that severs the heart with horror and sutures it with hope.

Gordon would give anything to have Wyatt back. He'd risk and sacrifice all he holds sacred to hear his child's voice again. Nothing will bring that voice back. The dead are dead and they do not speak...

But they listen. They hear. And sometimes... they heed the call.

The dead cannot touch, but they can guide. They cannot ask, but they can answer. They have no voice... but they can lie.

Wyatt's restless spirit returns to point the way to his killer. Gordon failed his son. He can't bring him back, but he can bring him justice. Whatever it takes, whatever the cost, he'll pay it. Anything for his boy. Anything.

Light At The End is a powerful debut, both wrenching and thrilling. Henry Jones has crafted a harrowing tale that blends action and phantasm which will break your heart and mend it again.

Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street

Light At The End is a bloody tale of vengeance that transcends life and death. Henry Jones has crafted a unique blend of James Ellroy and Don Winslow, with achingly real characters driven by heartbreaking loss towards the hope for redemption and forgiveness.

Graham McNeill, New York Times bestselling author of A Thousand Sons

Light at The End is an old-school crime noir, and my favorite kind of ghost story, too. It is, at turns, loving, terrifying and heartbreaking. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Geoff Herbach, author of Stupid Fast and Hooper

A genre-bending gut punch of revenge and redemption. Jones wields a sentence like a meat cleaver, cutting to the emotional bone. A must read for fans of crime drama and the supernatural.

To be a writer you have to have a God complex. But you also have to have a Satan one. Because the devil is in the details. And Henry Jones has just served up a piece of fugitive-style noir so detailed, so impressive and insightful and plotted, that the title, Light At The End, well, you just hope hope hope hope it’s true. No matter what you’ve done. If you like crime, and I do. Probably too much. If you love stories that matter, and they’re the only ones I care about, then read this. You’ll thank me every time you do. And Zach Brunner’s illustrations are pitch perfect. Pitch black perfect.
