Just discharged from the Army, Spence, the narrator of Cage of Night (newly available from PS Publishing), attends a high school party at the urging of his younger brother, Josh. At first, Spence regrets his decision to attend; he gets involved in a brawl, and afterwards, spends most of his time sitting on a stump, morosely observing the actions of the other partygoers. Then, he sees a young woman who will profoundly affect his life--beauty queen Cindy Brasher, who arrives at the party in the company of her hulking boyfriend, David Myles. For Spence, it is love at first sight.

After speaking briefly at the party, the two grow close. Unalarmed by the fact that Cindy spent time in a mental institution, Spence also reacts calmly to her assertions that she is in communication with an alien who lives in a well in the woods on the outskirts of town (holy "Colour Out of Space," Batman!). The alien, who supposely was stranded there during a meteor shower close to a century before, communicates with Cindy telepathically, telling her to do "things." Infatuated, Spence lets Cindy drag him to the well to listen to the alien firsthand, but hears nothing.

Spence is lucky, because others apparently DO hear, and are influenced by, the entity in the well. David Myles, jealous of Spence and Cindy, suddenly snaps and shoots a local girl in cold blood. Myles is gunned down by Mike Garrett, a policeman, who takes up with Cindy immediately thereafter. Ostensibly at the bidding of the alien, the two embark on a crime spree, resulting in a murder for which Spence is blamed. Spence, convinced the Cindy is a pawn in some deadly game he doesn't fully understand, strives to clear his name and rescue Cindy before Garrett can complete the frame-up.

Spence was an awkward kid who spent his teenage years reading comic books and watching horror movies. After high school he spent three years in the Army and when he returns—as the novel opens—he finds his hometown both different and the same. His little brother Josh turned into a star basketball player for the local high school team and blossomed into popularity, but he doesn’t feel any different. He lost his baby fat and his acne cleared up, but he still feels like an outsider.

Shortly after Spence returns home his brother talks him into attending a kegger and that’s where he meets Cindy Marie Brasher—an eighteen year-old homecoming queen who is dating the star quarterback at the high school. His name is David Myles and he and Spence take an instant dislike to each other. It doesn’t help that Spence and Cindy begin to see each other and quickly grow close.

Spence is smitten by Cindy. He doesn’t mind that she spent time in a mental hospital, or even that she claims to hear a voice from an old well. She is beautiful, tender and vulnerable. Their relationship is quick and it is everything Spence could imagine; then things start to happen. David guns down a woman in a grocery store for no apparent reason and an old high school friend, who is now a police officer, begins to follow and intimidate Spence. Then everything gets much worse when an old woman is brutally murdered and Spence is the suspect.

It all centers around Cindy and the voice from the old well, a voice that Spence can’t hear, but that Cindy and the others can.

CAGE OF NIGHT is a novel that is difficult to explain and describe. It doesn’t fit nicely into a category—it is horror, crime, fantasy and suspense rolled into one neat package, but yet not quite. It is different.

This is another one of my faves from Gorman. This book is suspenseful and creepy. The characters are likeable and very real. This book combines the elements of suspense, and the supernatural perfectly. Imagine a well shrouded in mystery. An old well that is said to be inhabited by a being from another world which is talking to those who will listen.
