Black market rings are not unheard of, nor are they uncommon. These rackets can be found just about anywhere and for just about anything, including babies…
Cry in the Night takes readers deep in the disturbing underworld of black market adoptions, murder, blackmail, and kidnapping. In
a remote Wisconsin backwater along Lake Superior, the crisis of baby kidnapping, murder, and blackmail
center on one family trying desperately to understand.
The Matthews family is fighting for the safety of their son, survival of a two-week-old baby found abandoned in the snow, and the sanctity of marriage when the resurrection of a dead husband threatens to destroy all that has been built in their lives. An unrealized evil has been lurking and growing in the small town of Rock Harbor, and it's up to the Matthews, the
sherriff, and the knowledge hidden in the mind of an autistic man to uncover the truth and save the many lives involved.
The plot type is reminiscent of Belva Plain’s unusual twists and horrifying what-ifs in the complex workings of marriages and families. Though Cry in the Night is much less complex than the scale at which Plain writes, it is no less interesting.
This is a great book, easy to read and easy to enjoy with an interesting plot. The hidden twists
are few, but that doesn’t diminish any of the pleasure of the storyline. Coble realistically portrays the emotions and thoughts of the characters as
multiple breathtaking situations play out and impact their fictional lives. Recommend for an interesting and light read.
