Ted has been many things……selfish, greedy, and even a murderer. How will he survive judgment day? Ted’s in a hotel room, with a woman named Bella, in the Canary Islands. He’s moments from death. In retrospect, he’d made it to the end and never paid for the drug dealing, gun running, or even the people he’s killed. Let the trial begin. St. Peter said, “It doesn’t look good. ”This other world, one we think of as the afterlife, isn’t as advertised. There is a God, but this Deity isn’t the God people imagine. Ted’s judgment day will peel back the layers of his life. Is there redemption to be found? Will the ruling be Heaven or Hell? Or is there something else? Before they can begin, Ted needs an advocate. After a lifetime of deceit, will anyone stand for him? You’ll love this clever look at a life, because what we see on the surface is often only a shade of the truth. Get it now.


Darkness Comes is an incredibly intriguing and smart novel. I flew through it, not stopping for anything. It left me thinking, which is always nice to encounter.

This review is difficult to write because I want to convey just how much I absolutely loved this novel without giving too much away. I think this is a book you need to go into without a lot of information.

Just trust me when I say, the writing is top notch, and it will hook you from beginning to end. Highly recommended!!



*I received a free copy of this book from Random Things Tours in exchange for an honest review on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*

For 40+ years I was an international salesman; I’ve lived and worked on every continent except Antarctica. I was always a writer, though; the very first writing success I remember was standing on the stage of Benton Park Primary School in Newcastle upon Tyne at the age of ten, reading to the assembled school and parents a story I had written. It still gives me pleasure to know that one of my fellow pupils — a man I have dinner with once a year when I go back to Newcastle — was nagged all the way home that afternoon by his mother demanding, “Why can’t you write like John Lynch?”

I sold my first freelance piece to Good Housekeeping Magazine in 1989 and that was a good year for me — it was also when I sold my first book to a publisher and my first short story to BBC Radio. (It’s called Bird and you can listen to it on my blog). My mother, the daughter of a Durham miner who first went down the pit when he was 12 years old, was proud that her son had a story on the radio — but even prouder that it was read by Clarrie Grundy from the long-running radio serial, The Archers.
I’ve ghost written about 50 books that have been published in other people’s names (you’ll find a video about that on my Author Page) as well as writing my own work. As me, I write under two names:

As R J Lynch for a series of five books set in County Durham (with one in the revolutionary American colonies) in the 1760s.
As John Lynch for contemporary fiction and two non-fiction books.
