This Just In… Moonlit Nights by Jacob Parr

A crime spree of horrendous proportions is just beginning in the Washington Metropolitan Area as bodies begin to turn up horribly mutilated and torn to pieces.

Aidan Preston, a homicide detective for the Montgomery County Police Department, delves into the case, finding himself immersed in a dark and dangerous world, the likes of which he has never seen.

What secrets do these moonlit nights hold?

The author explains that, while fictional, his narrative calls on scientific fact to take readers on a vivid and very real journey.

“It is a fresh new take and offers a well-researched perspective on not only these creatures of legend but the psychological condition of lycanthropy as well while making it a pulse racing thriller that continues to build all the way until the climax,” says Parr, who set his book in his native East Coast of the United States. “It’s being compared to NY Times bestselling authors’ work such as Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s The Relic, many of Michael Crichton’s science-laced novels like Congo and Jurassic Park and others as well. It takes a supernatural/mythological character and bases it in science and reasoning to make it a very real and horrifying possibility.”

Since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.

“It is a fresh new perspective in a world where people seem to keep rehashing the same tired storylines over and over again. One of the greatest strengths of Moonlit Nights is the author’s development of the characters, their individual storylines and particular arcs. It devotes just the right amount of time to every person in this book and actually makes you care about what happens to them,” says reviewer, Mark Kyle.
