When six desperados hunting their ex-partner ride into what appears to be a ghost town at dusk, they must fight to survive the night with the town's only two survivors, a woman and her deaf daughter, while fending off the animated bodies of the victims of a mysterious gas leak in the nearby mines.


As most paranormal fiction usually takes place in the modern world, a post-apocalyptic world or another dimension, Nine Hours Till Sunrise is rather unique. Set in a mining town in the old West, this book tells the story of six desperados whose need for vengeance and a satchel full of rubies lead them into a death trap; literally.

This compact, suspenseful and action-packed adventure of Ben and his band of villains is a book one can finish in an evening. True to the nature of lawless men, jealousy, hatred and the desire to kill one another, are rife among the members of Ben's group. Despite the life threatening situation they find themselves in, every man is still focussed only on avenging himself on his old comrade, Pat Ormsby, getting the rubies and being the sole survivor to claim said rubies.

The action takes the reader onto the roofs of the buildings of an old Western town, through underground passages and into highly dangerous mine shafts. In the end the main character, Caroline, must make impossibly difficult decisions regarding the lives of one of the men and her deaf daughter, Suzanna.

For a book full of adventure, lots of bloodshed and gore, and an underlying, very touching bit of humanity and compassion, I highly recommend Nine Hours Till Sunrise.
