About the Book

Zoe Michaels is working the late shift in the Easy Stop Diner on Route 15.

Vince, the owner is nowhere to be seen, and the fryers and griddle went cold over an hour ago.

But luckily for Zoe, it’s a Monday – and quiet.

Because something smells off tonight, and it isn’t Vince’s famous fried bologna sandwich…

All Night Long forms part of the Case Files series of short crime stories from USA Today bestselling author Rachel Amphlett.

My Thoughts

Another absolute cracker of a short story from Rachel Amphlett as part of her Case Files series. Slightly longer in length this one has a few surprises and unexpected twists that will amuse, and perhaps also make you feel a little queasy.

There is a tension that bubbles through this story right from the start. You get that edginess, a feeling of unease and things not quite being Ona. Level but not really knowing why. I kind of a got a feeling for the story early on, for what one of the revelations might be, but I certainly wasn’t expecting it to end quite as it did. I love that the author can do that and, in a few short chapters, set up the main characters in such a way that we are invested, whether we like them or not.

If you need a lunchtime distraction, this is most definitely worth a read.
