Some Choose Darkness Book Launch

What a great turnout for the launch of my fourth novel. It was a mix of childhood friends and new acquaintances, parents and children, my network of “adult” friends, and random readers who took the time to come out and meet me for the first time. A big THANK YOU to everyone!

Special thanks, also, to Read Between the Lynes Bookstore for providing the books. And to 750 Cucina Rustica for hosting a flawless event. You allowed the beer and wine to flow, perhaps, a bit too liberally. But, hey, everyone had a great time.

PRAISE for SOME CHOOSE DARKNESS

Named one of the most anticipated thrillers of Summer 2019

"The anxiety and deep cleansing breaths will be a must with this serial killer thriller."

—SheReads

“In Donlea's skillful hands, this story of obsession, murder, and the search for truth is both a compassionate character study and a compelling thriller.”

—Kirkus Reviews

“Donlea smoothly mixes red herrings and genuine clues...readers who relish a good puzzle will be rewarded.”

—Publisher's Weekly

“Part 1970s serial-killer thriller and part contemporary Chicago crime novel, this deceptively quick read has something for everyone.”

—Booklist

“A harrowing ride full of twists and turns.”

—Press-Republican
