Jeremy Finley, a Carterville native and author of the new mystery novel, "The Darkest Time of Night," will be signing copies of his book at Barnes & Noble in Carbondale this weekend.
"The Darkest Time of Night" is Finley's debut novel, a thriller that follows a grandmother's journey after her 4-year-old grandson disappears. The story involves suspense and government cover-ups, and perhaps some extraterrestrial activity.
Finley is an investigative journalist working for WSMV-TV in Nashville, Tennessee. He graduated with a bachelor's from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 1995, and worked for the Daily Egyptian and WSIU radio while in college. He also formerly worked as a reporter for KFVS-TV in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
He has been awarded Emmy and Edward R. Murrow awards during his career as a broadcast journalist.
He will sign copies of "The Darkest Time of Night" at the Carbondale Barnes & Noble at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 30. A reception at Anne West District Library in Carterville will follow at 4 p.m.
