It has already been one of those days Sandy Tremont would like to forget. A major snow storm is approaching her isolated family home in the Adirondacks and she has just had a dust up with her fifteen year old daughter, Ivy, who is sulking upstairs.

When Sandy's husband Ben, a wilderness guide, walks in the door, he can sense the tension. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning of what will be a terrifying and nightmarish evening, for outside the house two escaped convicts are about to come crashing through the front door. Was there a reason this isolated house was targeted by the two men or was it just a coincidence?

Home invasion is not a subject most people think about nor want to, but Jenny Milchman takes this scenario and turns it into one filled with secrets and surprises that will keep the reader up late into the night.

A complex and intriguing tale, As Night Falls is a memorable read that will only add to the author's growing fan base and bring her additional literary prize nominations. Milchman's debut, Cover of Snow, won the Mary Higgins Clark award.
