In Nocturnal, Christopher, a brash reporter, has trouble with the night. An insomniac, he rarely sleeps and, when he does, nightmares stemming from the unsolved murder of a childhood friend fifteen years earlier haunt him. But when he meets a young girl, who is the splitting image of his friend, and with the same name and same mother, his obsession intensifies.
With his obsession pushing away the woman he loves and threatening his promising career, Christopher seeks to halt the nightmares by solving the mystery of the murder. Through twists and turns, Christopher’s investigation takes him back to his sleepy hometown as well as the voodoo tinged world of the Louisiana Delta. Along the way, unknown forces that don’t want him to find the truth threaten his very life.
