"I'm there when it gets dark to kill you if I can..." The Bogey Man's sinister chant used to scare the wits out of Gary Scott when he was a five-year-old, growing up in the worst part of Glasgow. But now, nearly twenty years later, he's an experienced and, he likes to think, hard-nosed journalist. He's far too preoccupied with real life in all its seedy variety to worry about imaginary horrors. So why does he keep being drawn back to the dark closes and crumbling tower blocks of Maryhill? As one bizarre and grisly event succeeds another, as the deaths begin to pile up, Gary realizes that he himself is, somehow, inextricably involved. Then, one night, the Bogey Man arrives under his window. Of Darkness and Light is an elegant story of horror both physical and psychological, a taut and vivid slide into panic.
