WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains author Kevin Egan has just released his ninth novel, "Midnight," which has been called "a crystalline noir nightmare built on the premise that yes, things can always, always, always get worse” by Kirkus Reviews.
Set in the New York County Courthouse in Lower Manhattan, "Midnight" tells the tale of a courthouse with its own rules and traditions.
“Midnight is the most bracingly original thriller of the year. Egan’s deliciously devious novel asks and then answers the perfect question: How far would you go to keep your job? Here is a noirish tale layered with both style and substance, packed with colorful characters who give a new meaning to the word sinister. Great fun that is not to be missed!” said Jon Land, bestselling author in his review of the book
Egan, according to his website, is a self-described nonpracticing attorney who has spent his entire legal career working in the New York State Court system, including lengthy stints as law clerk to two State Supreme Court Justices. He now works in the New York County Courthouse that serves as the setting and inspiration for "Midnight." He also serces as an adjunct professor at Berkeley College in White Plains, teaching legal research and writing.
Egan is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the International Thriller Writers. Besides his novels, Egan has written several short stories. For more information, go here .
Egan will be appearing at 4 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Merritt Bookstore, 57 Front St., Millbrook to read and answer questions.
