A secret bunker. A sinister darkness. Can Dan Tracy put the pieces together before the whole world is lost?
On a family trip to a disused Cold War bunker, Dan Tracy's family gets caught up in life threatening events which have cast a sudden and terrible darkness over the surface of the planet.
All known life has been put to sleep, causing havoc throughout the world as planes drop from the skies, vehicles career off the road and governments seem powerless to intervene.
24 hours after the darkness descends, the bunker undergoes a massive transformation and it emerges that the dusty old tunnels form a state-of-the-art operations centre which has been hiding in open view for many decades - but its present-day purpose is unclear.
Dan soon realises that he and his family are part of something bigger than they could ever have imagined and the world is in perilous danger from a malevolent organisation based on earth and intent on destroying the planet.
Darkness Falls is the first book in a modern-day sci-fi dystopian thriller.

What readers are saying
The Secret Bunker set a quick pace towards a culmination of events with a meeting of all the main characters and left me gripped along the way. It's not often I pre order the next book but I did in this case, there's no way I'm missing what happens next.
I'm fascinated by the fact that Paul manages to provide an authentic teenage voice for his prime character all the way through. Looking forward to seeing what comes in the second of the trilogy which I've already pre-ordered, need I say more?
Really enjoyed this adventure seen through the eyes of the teenage lead character - his voice was so true and compelling. I'm looking forward to reading the others and would rather like to go and visit the real bunker!
Thoroughly enjoyed this as it keeps you intrigued all the way through. Must get on to part 2 now.
I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down, I can't wait to see what happens next in book two! 5 Stars, I really enjoyed it!
... the action is intense and lots of twists and turns abound until the last page is turned. At the conclusion, the reader is left wondering about many events that are still in progress. Wow...... The characters are well defined, plot is fantastic and the ending leaves us waiting for the next part
… Most highly recommended.
[Note: This book has a cliffhanger ending and is written in UK English]
