A career screenwriter, Robert Geoffrion has worked in all genres of feature films and television in North and South America, Europe, and Australia. He is a graduate of the University of Ottawa and the University of Montreal. Dead by Night is his first novel.
A week-old baby lies in a coma—the victim of an accident, or of his mother's distress. Christened Hope, he is alive yet unable to live. Most of the characters in Hope's orbit are also in limbo, unable to make sense of their lives or to grasp what they feel they deserve.
