Following on the heels of his most recent bestseller, Lost Immunity (Simon & Schuster, 2021), which CBC Books named one of the Best Canadian Fiction Books of 2021, Daniel Kalla has written The Darkness in the Light (Simon & Schuster $24.99) due out in May. In this thriller, a psychiatrist worries about his patients suiciding and flies to the remote Arctic community Utqiagvik, Alaska to check on one of them, Amka Obed only to find she has disappeared. Regional police believe Amka will return but the doctor as well as the town’s social worker aren’t so sure. Is it a missing person inquiry, a pharmaceutical cover-up or the local underground drug trade acting up? The answer will horrify this isolated community. Daniel Kalla works as an emergency physician in Vancouver when not writing novels. 9781982191399
