Midnight Eyes is a thriller set in Louisiana, an area of the country Williams knows well having grown up there. A serial killer is working on of the small Louisiana towns and an embattled sheriff and his FBI profiler son have to solve the case before more die.

I have read several of Mr. Williams' shorter works. This was my first trip with him down the long path. It's a hefty book and it took me some time to get through. This is a good thing -- there is such rich character development and build-up as the book moves forward that I think it would be shame to try to slam through the book.
