Four Corners of Night Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Four Corners of Night

This is a story about a cop in a small semi urban city. (Toledo, Ohio) He, along with his partner and friend of many years work nights patroling and keeping the streets safe from gang and other criminal violence. Mack and Bank take on the task of locating a young girl, stolen in broad daylight just outside of her inner city home. This starts off emotionally as Bank himself, lost his daughter to a similar abduction years before. He's determined to set right what was lost in the past. It's a pretty good read for anyone from Toledo. The author is from Toledo, but does not specify it as the setting, rather a city named Libby, somewhere in the midwest. However, any reader born and raised in Toledo can recognize his many haunts within and around woods.
