“Darkness Left Undone explores the fine line of how a normal everyday life can be seamlessly transformed into an extraordinary fast paced edge of your seat sequence of events. This novel is about how bar owner Michael Andrews quest to find his friend who is traveling abroad turns into a momentum driven search that bleeds into dark world wide repercussions. The characters were developed in my debut novel Yesterday’s Darkness.
Although Darkness Left Undone is technically a sequel, it stands alone and was inspired by the Harriet Beecher Stowe quote “The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone” As with most thriller authors I like to look at life through the eyes of my antagonist.

If I had to say something to my readers I would say this. My novels will make you turn the pages while respecting your intelligence. I never shove my personal opinions down my reader’s throat but create situations that provoke thought. In fact, when I am in the writing process I only have the opinions of the characters. I love to walk the line of fact and fiction to the point that you will question if what is insinuated as fiction is actually fact. It is rare that two readers get the same interpretation from my novels and I truly love that about my writing. ” – Carl Henegan is one of the few authors who can give such a true to life experience with his brilliant descriptions in his novels that the readers feel they see and live through every moments like in the real life…
