The Man in the Dark Night: A Novel by Arya Ayaan is a psychological thriller that will have you biting your nails until the end. Our story follows an initially unnamed male protagonist whose car broke down. With the rain pouring heavily and a flat tire that cannot be fixed, his only source of refuge is home. Walking to his mansion was tedious, and his wife could not help but notice that he was acting strange. But he is not the only one. Something strange is happening to both of them and their relationship. Things get confusing, the couple doesn’t remember a lot of things and before they know it, strange things happen. What is wrong with our protagonist? What is the dark presence that they feel?
A psychological thriller novel can be predictable and clichéd if authors aren’t careful, but Arya Ayaan did a fantastic job of keeping the plot fresh and interesting right until the very end of the story. The atmosphere of the story was intense, dark, and mysterious. Nothing made sense in the beginning but as The Man in the Dark Night progressed, it became clear to me that something was wrong with the protagonist. We get to know toward the end that he is called Christopher, and there is something wrong with him or something is driving him crazy. The ending surprised me. I was not expecting the last chapter and the turn of the story. I love how the author took just a handful of characters and created a story around them. Fans of psychological thriller novels will enjoy it!
