I was contacted by Sang Pak the author of Wait Until Twilight several months ago. He asked me to review his book. I of course jumped at the chance. After some drama with a publicist quitting I have finally received a copy of his book from Harper. Thank you Sang Pak and Gregory Henry.
The book will be released on August 8, 2009 in trade paperback as well as an E-book. The paperback is available through Amazon, and E-book through the publisher. Please see links below for Amazon purchasing information.

Here is what the publisher says about the book:
A hauntingly strange and powerfully affecting debut novel that heralds the arrival of a unique and captivating literary voice, Sang Pak's Wait Until Twilight is a coming-of-age story that explores the complex darkness infecting a damaged psyche in a small Southern town.
Not long after his own mother's death, sixteen-year-old Samuel discovers a set of deformed triplets hidden behind closed doors in his sleepy Georgia community. The babies—whose shut-in mother believes they were immaculately conceived and whose menacing brother is a constant threat—take control of Samuel's every waking and sleeping thought. His only escape, he realizes, will be to save the monster children. But to do so, he must rein in his darkest impulses as he undergoes a profound transformation from motherless boy to self-defined man—because sometimes the most terrible monsters are those that live inside us all.
