OVERNIGHT by Philip Fracassi

Publisher: Unnerving 
Publication Date: July 16, 2018
Pages: 44

Philip Fracassi's OVERNIGHT wasn't what I expected. I'm not saying it's a bad story. It's not. But I will say it's a creepy story. I read SHILOH earlier this year and loved it. OVERNIGHT is startling in that it deals with stalking. A guard needs the money. The man offering him the money needs access to the actresses trailer to procure some souvenirs. 

OVERNIGHT is relatively flat until the latter third of the story. The characters don't have much depth. The only character with any history is the main character. The ending is great. OVERNIGHT is well-written, but it felt rushed. Philip Fracassi is a superb author with powerful prose. Even though I didn't fully connect with this story, I will definitely check out his other work. Overall, OVERNIGHT is an okay story.
