Dan Page is a police officer who has seen his share of the bad side of humanity. Out of the blue, his wife disappears and turns up in a small remote town in
A terrifying incident happens the night Officer Page finds his wife at the observation area of the Rostov Lights. A gunman begins shooting at the lights – and then turns his gun on the gathered crowd. This leads to a series of events that causes Page and his wife to try and solve the mystery of the lights…a mystery that dates back to the original settlers of the town – and probably before.
As the Afterward points out, this book is fiction – but a “surprising amount of reality is in The Shimmer. Rostov is based on a real town in West Texas (Marfa), and real stories (the way certain people – including a variation of a story about a famous actor – reacted or changed after viewing the lights) are in the novel. I couldn’t get enough of the stories, and have been looking into finding out other information about the lights.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a good thriller. This book will keep you guessing and I might even venture to say you might not want to put it down!!
