North Chastain possesses a paranormal talent that gives him the ability to track down the most dangerous psychic criminals. When his father suddenly falls into a coma, North is convinced it was caused by a deadly artifact traced back to the days of a secret government laboratory known only as the Bluestone Project. North knows his only hope of saving his father is to find the artifact. He is good when it comes to tracking down killers but to locate the relic, he's going to need help from a psychic who knows the shadowy world of obsessive collectors, deceptive dealers, and ruthless raiders…Thoughts on All the Colors of Night: More shenanigans in Fogg Lake. Well, sort of. I mean, some of it takes place outside of Fogg Lake. But everything is definitely connected to that mysterious place.
With her reputation in ruins after a false accusation, antique expert Sierra Raines is looking for a fresh start. She turns to the murky backwaters of the paranormal artifacts trade, finding and transporting valuable objects with a psychic provenance. When North Chastain approaches her for help, Sierra takes him on as a client, though not without reservations. North represents the mysterious Foundation, the secretive organization established to police the underworld populated by psychic criminals and those, like Sierra, who make a living in the shadows of that world.
North and Sierra soon find themselves at the scene of The Incident that occurred decades ago in Fogg Lake. The town and its residents were forever changed by the disaster in the nearby Bluestone Project labs. The pair unearth shocking truths about what happened that fateful night, but they are playing with fire—someone in town knows what they’ve discovered and will do anything to make sure the secrets stay buried.
This time around, we have North and Sierra. He's a cleaner for the Foundation whose paranormal senses are on the fritz. She's a go-between for those who collect hot artifacts. They both have dangerous jobs. They're both in a weird transitional place when they meet. They both feel the undercurrents sparking between them.
They're also working against the clock. North's father is in a bad way and he and Sierra need to figure out what's going on and how to help him before things take a turn for the worse. Following a trail of old breadcrumbs, they end up in Fogg Lake at the site of the now infamous incident.
A whole lot of danger, two individuals trying to find their place in the world, a sketchy hospital, mysterious artifacts, and a very intense connection. Fogg Lake. Oh, yeah.
