Book Description

Book Two of Arthur A. Lee's Mystery and Adventure Series. “Wait Until The Dark Of Night” is a spin-off from Lee's popular “Morgan Crew Murder Mystery Series.” Joseph Cross, who helped Morgan Crew in "A Deadly London Fog," is an American ex-patriot who owns a luxurious casino in London. He is high up in the criminal world of the UK, running smuggling operations and dealing in illegal diamonds.

His worst enemy, a Member of Parliament, asks for his help to rescue her son, who was kidnapped by an African warlord while doing mission work in Uganda. Cross sees this as an opportunity to get her and the police off his back and agrees to help. He makes use of his criminal contacts in Switzerland, Amsterdam, and Tenerife and hires a French mercenary group to back up his plans. He then travels deep into Africa, risking death and imprisonment over and over, giving the reader a constant sense of suspense and fear, never knowing what will happen next.

And, despite his criminal reputation, Cross maintains he is willing to put his life at risk because ‘It is the right thing to do.’ The character is what Lee likes to describe as the “good bad guy.”

In the Mystery and Adventure Series, Lee explores the psyche of men who live in the world of crime. These men, like Joseph Cross in “Wait Until The Dark Of Night” and Tony Moretti in “Three Families,” do not run from danger; they run towards it without hesitation, relishing the fear and the rush that a near death experience provides. This results in a constant sense of suspense and intrigue for the reader, who has to wonder what will happen on the next page.
