For Ray Manning, owner of the Atlanta Barons, the timing of the shooting couldn’t be worse.

R.C. O’Leary has written a compelling novel with a fast-paced plot that keeps the pages turning. A legal thriller that features a mix of colorful characters, backroom dealing, and well-written action.
Hallways in the Night starts off strong and never lets up: from the initial confrontation through a courtroom showdown in which the stakes are much too high for anybody to tell “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
All the elements necessary to make it a satisfying and enjoyable read, and plot twists that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
Once begun, it’s hard to put down.
Hallways in the Night is a legal thriller, but it is also much more. It is a novel with plot twists that surprise and will keep you guessing as you read the story. As each character joins the story, the novel widens out and becomes more complex. Each character helps add complexity to the novel because each character is pursuing their own agenda, usually at the expense of others. There's enough money, power, and consequences at stake that each character is impacted by it and it influences not only the choices they make, but also forces them to decide how much of the truth they are willing to tell and how much of the truth must be sacrificed in order to either maintain the life they have or to achieve a life they desire. As a result, two of the most powerful emotions <b> fear </b> and <b> ambition </b> have as much to do, if not more, with the outcome than the actual truth of what happened.
This novel also is a story about race and power. It's a story of how those with power wield it, often with little regards for those who will be negatively impacted by it and how they, themselves are impacted by it.
The novel also shows not only the role that race plays in modern day America, but how race relations have evolved over time and how that evolution affects the lives of those living when it takes place.
In all it's a book that will keep the pages turning. It manages to combine a complex and entertaining plot with an ease of prose that ensure an enjoyable read. By the end, the book wraps up in a way that respects the reader's time and ensures that the book was an enjoyable and satisfying read.
