Goodnight, Mr. Knight is a mystery drama by Allan Davis. After years of moving around from one foster home to another, Owen and his foster sister Martha are eventually put into the care of Sister Charlotte in Toronto by the Catholic Family and Children Services (CFCS). To the children's surprise, they soon realize that Sister Charlotte's incurable health condition forces her to take pills that often leave her "high as a kite." When a high-profile case involving the deaths of boys puts a senior clergyman at risk, Sister Charlotte may find herself being forced to testify and having to lie under oath. Meanwhile, Owen and Martha discover the true identities of their birth parents, turning their worlds upside down. Will Sister Charlotte testify and how will Owen and Martha deal with the secrets of the Church?
Every single one of the main characters is plagued with trauma and conflict, resulting in inherently dynamic characters that are riveting to read. Allan Davis weaves a tantalizing plot revolving around the scandals of the Catholic Church and its clergymen, who go to extreme lengths to protect the secrets and reputation of the Church, disrupting innocent lives with indifference in the process. Goodnight, Mr. Knight is surreal, at times poignant, but above all, emotionally resonant. This is primarily due to the distinct and layered protagonists, each of whom has a well-fleshed-out character arc that keeps you invested throughout the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and if you're a fan of character-driven stories, you shouldn't miss this one.
