Steps Into Darkness
By Ben Woodward
Age Range: Young Adult
The author grew up practically living in the local library. Reading was his escape and the library was his portal. He loved boys adventure stories and he’s been amazed at the reports that say boys don’t read. So he decided to write the kind of stories he remembered. Tales of lost gold and river caves, and fun. And stories of friendship that endure through adversity and danger. Adventures that inspire and educate, and, most of all, entertain.
The result is Steps Into Darkness where fourteen-year-old Tom Wallace again makes plans to escape the small town in the 1923 Kentucky countryside. The town that won’t let him forget his past, when a horrific event changes his mind. He teams with his cousin Will and young FBI agent Rick Sweeney to try to solve a perplexing mystery. Attempts on the boys’ lives and a bewildering list of suspects keep them on edge and confused. An old man gives them a clue that leads to a false accusation and embarrassment until they discover the real villain, and then wish they hadn’t.
STEPS INTO DARKNESS is a fun, page-turning thriller with a hint of romance that delivers adventure and mystery while exploring the fears of a teen living with a frightful memory.
