Product description

About the Author

Better known in the art world, F.M. Kearney is an award-winning fine art nature photographer. Although he has written several photography-related articles for magazines and online sites, this is his first novel-length feature in the horror genre. Kearney began his career as a photojournalist in New York City. His assignments took him all over town, with the subway serving as his primary means of transportation. When most non-New Yorkers think of the subway, thoughts of Grand Central, Times Square and Penn Station – huge bustling hubs filled with hundreds of people – will undoubtedly come to mind. Having traveled on every line in the city, it was clear to him that the vast majority of the system’s 468 stations were nothing like that, in fact, they were the exact opposite. Most were fairly quiet, dimly lit and sparsely populated…and that’s in the middle of the day. Viewing it as the perfect setting for a horror story, it’s no wonder why Kearney chose the subway as his muse for “They Only Come Out at Night.”

Character study balanced with uproarious action scenes of horror and carnage characterize this novel, set in the subways and the aboveground locales of New York City. Riding the subways has always included an expectation of crime, including mugging, robbery, and assault. But murders aren't expected, aren't as common belowground, as now; suddenly someone -or perhaps something--is targeting lone commuters, those who stay out too late at work or at classes, and so are alone embarking on a subway train or departing one. Next are attacks on subway employees, including a conductor. Eventually it seems no one is safe in the subway; but what could be causing the extraordinary level of violence involved, of murders seeming to require superhuman or beyond human strength and agility? The race is on for law enforcement to target the culprit or culprits, and for the reader to race to the end to find out: Who? What? How? And Why now? One woman, Melissa, lost her mother and nearly lost her father in an unprecedentedly brutal subway assault some years back. Now she fears that the Subway Slayer may also be targeting her, or possibly her boss/boyfriend, or even her father, who had survived the initial attack which killed his wife.

I rate this novel at 18+, due to extreme violence and some sensual encounters.
I reviewed a complimentary e-book copy of this novel, provided in return for my fair and impartial review.

I have to say that I personally think that it needs to come with a warning of the graphic and very violent scenes portrayed in the book. I have to say that even though I have read many horror, gore violence genre led books this was extreme and left me feeling sick, although I will give praise for the authors obvious ability to set the mood for the book, the first chapter however put me off reading the rest of the book as it made me feel physically sick.
I cannot therefore say if this is a good book or not, the author obviously has a great command of the English language. But for me it was too much.
I hope that if you decide to read this book you can read more than I was able too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, creepy story but riddled with typographical and grammatical errors 22 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As other readers have noted, this book is very violent in the descriptions of what becomes of the victims. However, it is a good, creepy, spooky story. It is especially fun if you live in NYC and are familiar with the various stations and landmarks referenced. Suddenly I found myself riding the subways with a heightened sense of fear. Normally, I get on the subways without thinking much about it, but once I was fully into the book I found myself jumping at the mysterious noises of the subway system. So the book accomplishes the creepy factor.

My biggest complaint about the book has to do with the technical side of it. The editor did not read the book and catch the multitude of typos (usage of 'passed' when the correct word was 'past' or 'scrapping' where the word should have been 'scraping'). Seeing typos like that irritate me to no end, but once I got over my irritation, I enjoyed the story. But be warned, if you are easily bugged by that kind of problem in text, avoid this book. The further I got into the book the lazier the editor got and more errors were present.
4.0 out of 5 stars I sense a sequel.... 27 May 2014
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

They Come out at Night- F. Kearney: This ended up being a pleasant surprise for me. I was expecting something else. Although this was not what I expected I found this highly entertaining. There were a few spots where I thought too much time was spent on details or back history. After reading several paragraphs of “trivial” content, I admit I skipped over about a handful of pages altogether. That’s not too bad. The author will learn how to keep us well informed in fewer words so that the meat of the story can continue before losing the reader.
I adore Melissa and felt for her sorrows. She is a very young woman to have endured such tragedies in her short life.
The author is highly talented and creative. I stayed perplexed but did manage did figure out part of the ending...but only a small part. I was surprised. The ending left me full of questions. I sense a sequel..perhaps? The ending is a perfect set-up for one.
The was spooky and brought the chicken out in me. I am a country bumpkin who is afraid of things that go bump in the night.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money on this one. 11 Nov. 2013
By Phillip Casey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I usually refrain from writing reviews of books I have read, because reactions to books and authors is pretty subjective, and one man's pleasure may be another's poison. But, in the case of this book, I couldn't resist. The best thing I can say about this book is that I managed to get it for free. While the basic story has the possibility of being good, the execution undercuts it badly. I have seen transcription errors in digital books that I have purchased, but this book outdoes them all. Instances of poor sentence structure, and the incorrect use of sound-alike words detracts from whatever the author is trying to accomplish. The use of "mustard" for "mustered" and "giggling" for "jiggling" are just a couple of many possible examples. I can't believe that the author did not proof-read this story before publication. I cannot recommend that anyone bother to read this book, particularly if the price stays at the current $4.99. A dime is too much.

The writing - particularly the dialogue - is very simplistic. Though it did not bother me personally , there is violence in story so be warned if you dislike that sort of thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars not even halfway yet but.... 19 Jan. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
very graphic violence,a storyline that keeps you reading,and, so far I would recommend this story to those horror fans if you are not against the gruesome details of slicing and dicing murder. I would like to volunteer to be a proof reader however because I have found 3 errors in the first 105 pages. One of the mistakes I found was the word" the" when it was supposed to be they. A small mistake but distracting.(Chapter 2 discussing what to wear.."The laughed again.")Another small mistake was the word possible when it should have been possibly. Another little error but for some readers it is distracting.( Chapter 4 "She continued to scream as loud as she possible could-") The 3rd thing was also in chapter 2 but without rereading the chapter I couldn't find it quickly.
In spite of being nit picky I am enjoying the story and can't wait to finish the book.Don't let the tiny distractions keep you away. This book is definitely worth reading.
