    Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.

    If you could sum up Nocturnal: A Novel in three words, what would they be?

    In your face.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that Sigler doesn't treat apparently beloved characters as treasures to keep on a shelf. He's not afraid to kill a loved character, nor is he afraid to put the hero into a darker place, reflecting what might really happen to a guy on the edge of sanity when everything he knows and believes is torn out from under him.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't yet, but I really, really liked Phil's performance. I like his voices, I like his delivery and I like that he brings the characters to life without having to over-do it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When I finished this book I was in a bit of a conflicted mood... not only did I need to take a moment and catch my breath, but I didn't want it to end. It was like that first roller coaster ride at a new park. I want a sequel... I want more Chang & Klauser. I want more, more, more.


    Any additional comments?

    To be fair, I'd first listened to this book's earlier version on the podcast, and this rewrite smacked me in the head and made me love it all over again. I never felt like I was trudging through a retelling. It's new... it's kick ass... it's hard hitting. It's really quite good. I'm an unapologetic super-fan of Sigler's work, and I keep waiting for that jump-the-shark moment. He keeps not letting me down, and delivering top-notch stuff.
