You know those rundown motels that you pass on road trips, the motels where you can park right at the door to your room? The ones with the buzzing signs that blink vacancy and cable TV? The really creepy ones? Welcome to the Sun Down Motel, located in Fell, a small town in upstate NY.
Viv Delaney was just passing through in 1982. Running out of money before she could reach New York City, with dreams of becoming an actress, she takes a job as the night clerk at The Sun Down. Something isn’t right at the motel, but Viv is compelled to investigate...and then she disappears...
In 2017, Viv's niece Carly is drawn to Fell, NY after her mother's death.
She wants to find out what happened to Vivian and ends up following in her Aunt's footsteps.
She too takes a job at The Sun Down as a night clerk, some things never change..
With a badass heroine, dual timelines, ghosts, one of the creepiest atmospheres, and layers of backstory that build and build. This book is rich with chills and suspense. It is one of my favorites.— Amy Handley
