    Midnight on Mourn Street

    If the two novels I've read written by Christopher Conlon, this one and "A Matrix of Angels," are any indication, he likes characters who had childhood experiences that have haunted them as adults. While not exactly the same, it appears from the description of Conlon's book of poetry, "Starkweather Dreams," that it is told from the viewpoint of serial killer Charles Starkweather, and delves into the same psychological neighborhood.

    If done right, this combination is the recipe for an intense, satisfying story. The conflict in such a tale comes from the character's own mind as they attempt working out their issues. In this instance, the fact that the path one character is taking to accomplish this is on a collision course to disrupt that of the other, adds additional conflict. I love stories where it doesn't appear that there is a way for characters we identify with to all meet their apparent goals. This makes the story unpredictable and keeps us interested. Will one of the characters realize their goal is wrong and change it? Or maybe the happy ending we're hoping for isn't in the cards. The only way to find out is to read to the end. With "Midnight on Mourn Street," Christopher Conlon gives us one of those intense, satisfying stories, done right.
