Book of the day: Cage of Night by Ed Gorman
Twenty-one-year-old Spence returns to his hometown after two years in the Army and falls in love with Cindy Brasher, Homecoming Queen and town goddess to a long line of jealous men.
A string of robberies puts Spence at odds with his obsessive love for Cindy. One by one Spence's rivals are implicated in horrific crimes.
Spence wonders how much Cindy knows and why she wants him, like her past boyfriends, to visit the old well in the woods...
This is one of my favorites of Ed's. Highly recommended! --Dave Zeltserman
