About D. W. St.John

Here is where a writer is supposed to tell you all about the exciting things he's done. How he's wrestled crocodiles in Tanzania, bounced drunks in an Amsterdam brothel, smuggled guns to Cuba and sat in as drummer for the Who in Tokyo. Well, I've never done any of that, but hey, nobody's perfect.

My life is much like yours. I'm just another soul shoe horned into a meat puppet biding my time until I return to the one.

These stories are just dreams I lived. If I've done my job even passably well, then you may live them, too.

Review by: Carol on Oct. 15, 2012 :
A nicely paced novel with suspense and some romance. I would have liked better formatting with some chapter divisions and marking for changes of scene and time.

Cop Thriller Makes for Memorable Characters
Night Hume is a cop, a wannabe social worker, protector of the downtrodden, and saint to the masses. He is also a fool and a hopeless romantic who may very well lose his job, his lifelong friend/cop partner, and even his life if he doesn't stop doing stupid things just on principle. This man, with whom I was privileged to spend a few hours over several evenings, has fallen in love with the lady, and I do mean lady, he was supposed to have arrested. The sting needs to happen and the confiscation of her home, the "essentially orphaning" of her daughter, and the death of her daughter all must happen in the name of the law. And Night does not question the law he enforces—until today.

This is a good story, and I enjoyed it very much. The characters develop throughout the story. The climiax is well written, and builds tension nicely. There are some formatting problems, which one reviewer pointed out, but they don't really interefere with reading. One of the better reads I have picked up here.

Review by: Roberto Rivera on April 15, 2011 :
All in all, a very satisfying read. The book's leisurely pace allows you to get a feel for the principal characters and the story itself does a good job of expressing the author's take on some aspects of the "War on Drugs."

While I enjoyed the story, I must add that this is, by far, the worst-formatted e-book I have ever read: bizarre and even distracting breaks and some passages seemed to have been cut and pasted into the wrong sections. It's a testimony to the story itself that I was willing to work through what was an unacceptably-poor bit of formatting.

This is a very good book, though it needs some editing.
Punctuation makes things run smoother for the reader.

Review by: Roger R. Fernandez on Nov. 17, 2010 :
In See Night Run, Dave ST. John poignantly relates a devastating problem of our modern society: the war on drugs. In the engaging dialogue of common folks, the author stimulates the reader to follow with amazement the increasingly intense impact of the often violent street life in the drug culture, and the fate of the undercover agent Night who becomes himself an unsuspected victim of that street environment. This novel is indeed a real thriller in the streets of Eugene, Oregon.

In the age of medical marijuana, here's a story about a drug cop who makes the ultimate mistake---he begins to question what he's doing, who he's hurting by enforcing the law. Loved seeing him squirm.
