Doug Horolez is a talentless boy hopelessly in love with his only friend, E. Summerson. That’s the good news. When E.’s sister is murdered in the woods behind town, Doug, to prove his devotion, joins a group of local pariahs, led by a deathly ill and eerily charismatic boy, who urges them to dig for clues to solve the girl's mysterious death. But as cultish bonds deepen within the group, their activities become more reckless and vengeful. Doug must then find his voice and act according to his conscience before the price to be loved becomes unspeakable violence. Kelter has created is a coming-of-age novel and psychological thriller that investigates the recurrent mysteries of loss, loneliness, and the precarious desire to belong.

"Levis Keltner's debut has echoes of William Golding and Ian McEwan. Haunting and moving, Into That Good Night is a dark twist on the coming-of-age narrative that you will not easily forget. This one will keep you reading well past your bedtime. Keltner is the real thing." -- William Jensen, author of Cities of Men

"The characters in this novel haven’t lived long enough to understand that social rivalries aren't more urgent than death. An existential mystery story only partly about who did it and why, Into that Good Night explores the difference between what's right and what others tell us is right. This elegant, wise novel with its profound insights about adolescence and tribal loyalty makes us flinch with recognition about the difficult navigation into selfhood. Everyone’s rite of passage isn’t this dark, but this is everyone's rite of passage." --Debra Monroe, author of My Unsentimental Education

"Haunting, moving, and impossible to put down, Into That Good Night unearths the fear and redemption that surround a group of teenagers in the wake of a mysterious death. In this solid debut novel, Levis Keltner shows us how compassion can rise from the ashes of what tragedy leaves behind, that sometimes the most important lessons might be the most burning." –Robert Wilder, author of Nickel and Daddy Needs a Drink.
