Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Al amparo de la noche
Baker & Taylor
In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast, and though the overnight guests are few and far between, Cate always manages to make ends meet with the help of the local jack-of-all-trades, Calvin Harris, who can handle everything from carpentry to plumbing, but Calvin is not what he seems, and Cate’s luck is about to run out.

Spanish Pubs Llc
Cate Nightingale, una joven madre viuda, vive pacificamente en una pequena poblacion en Idaho, donde regenta un hostal con escasos visitantes. Cuenta con la ayuda de Calvin Harris, un enigmatico personaje que arregla los desperfectos del edificio. Sin embargo, cuando un huesped del hostal desaparece misteriosamente, la apacible rutina del pueblo se altera sin remedio. La brutal visita de unos matones exigiendo las pertenencias de ese hombre aterra a Cate y le hace temer por la vida de sus hijos. Calvin aparece y espanta a los agresores, pero esto no sera mas que el comienzo de la pesadilla: los intrusos se organizan para aislar totalmente al pueblo y convertir a sus habitantes en asustados rehenes. Ocultandose en la oscuridad de la noche, Cate y Calvin huiran al pueblo vecino para obtener ayuda, y durante ese viaje desesperado y lleno de peligros descubriran que los une algo mucho mas profundo e intenso que el miedo.
