Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

D.W. St. John's (A Terrible Beauty) See Night Run is a densely written cop drama that takes aim at the war on drugs. Night Hume, a ponytailed member of the Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team, is supposed to bust a pretty biology professor for dealing marijuana, but instead he rents a spare room in her house and watches deals go down without a word. Torn between enforcing and flouting the law and caught in the middle of a government coverup, lovestruck Hume is forced to question everything he's ever believed in.

More About the Author

Author profiles are written by the authors themselves. Did you know that? That's why in author bio's, authors never 'live' anywhere---they 'reside.' Sounds more profound, doesn't it? But, honestly, they just live somewhere.

Authors are neither more clever nor more interesting than you are, they just have to pretend to be, because who would pay to read a book by someone as ordinary as they are?

Why do we write? Every writer has a different reason.
We want people to think we're smart.
We're not comfortable talking to people directly. We can write all the clever stuff we could never think of in real life.
We want to share our dreams.
We want to make a few shekels.
The more naive of us may want to change the world.
That's all.

Be well and may reading be a great joy to you.

See Night Run was recommended to me. When I checked it out at The Kindle Store I wasn't impressed but I downloaded a sample. Went back and bought the book. Great book!! Makes you rethink your attitudes about "drug users" and the so-called "drug war." Such as: it isn't all black and white. There are many shades of gray.
True, many lives and families are ruined due to drug addiction but many of these are "legal" drugs. Do yourself a favor - read this book. At the very least, it'll make you think.

In See Night Run, Dave ST. John poignantly relates a devastating problem of our modern society: the war on drugs. In the engaging dialogue of common folks, the author stimulates the reader to follow with amazement the increasingly intense impact of the often violent street life in the drug culture, and the fate of the undercover agent Night who becomes himself an unsuspected victim of that street environment. This novel is indeed a real thriller in the streets of Eugene, Oregon.

The Drug War is a topic usually avoided by novels unless portraying evil drug lords and heroic cops and agents taking them down. But what if... Just what if the drug dealer wasn't an evil drug lord? What if she is a very decent woman? And what if the cop sent to arrest her is able to think about what he does rather than just follow orders? Wellll... then you've got a story, and damned good one.

Night Hume is a cop, a wannabe social worker, protector of the downtrodden, and saint to the masses. He is also a fool and a hopeless romantic who may very well lose his job, his lifelong friend/cop partner, and even his life if he doesn't stop doing stupid things just on principle. This man, with whom I was privileged to spend a few hours over several evenings, has fallen in love with the lady, and I do mean lady, he was supposed to have arrested. The sting needs to happen and the confiscation of her home, the "essentially orphaning" of her daughter, and the death of her daughter all must happen in the name of the law. And Night does not question the law he enforces--until today.

As Night's boss presses for the arrest, Night stalls by fixing broken washing machines and garbage disposals for Ceridwen Lawrence, then by leasing her two extra bedrooms and moving himself and his thirteen-year-old daughter, wise beyond her years, into this home. The better to arrest Ceridwen, right? How stupid can he be?

Night continues to do his job, gets himself shot, eavesdrops on his daughter, Jade and her friend, Alexis and wonders how he is going to keep his job as he realizes he may have been set up. Five, or was it seven, innocent cops murdered by the bad guys may have by murdered by the good guys. How can he prove it? How can he stay alive, keep his daughter alive, cure Alexis' cancer, win the heart of Ceridwen, and keep everyone from learning he is living in her house and giving cooking lessons to her daughter?

I like great stories with memorable characters, and I certainly will remember these people.

There are formatting issues. (Read the sample in case they have been fixed.) The Kindle book needs to have a title page before the blurb about the book.
