Robin Winter author of Night Must WaitRobin Winter‘s first novel, a historical thriller set in West Africa, Night Must Wait, came out October 2012 . Her next novel, Future Past,  dystopian science fiction, Eternal Press published in 2013. Now you can expect her newest thriller, Watch the Shadows in April of 2015. Here’s the concept…

Think of a strong smart young woman in Isla Vista, California, planning to become a scientist, who’s faced by the gradual disappearance of the local homeless, and a sequence of strange happenings concerning ducks– events mounting to a personally threatening point. Call it science fiction or thriller with aliens for garnish, and a dash of gooey horror.
