Publisher's Summary

The Dying Hour introduces Jason Wade, a rookie crime reporter with the Seattle Mirror, a loner who grew up in the shadow of a brewery in one of the city's blue-collar neighborhoods. At the Seattle Mirror, he is competing for the single full-time job being offered through the paper's intense intern program. But unlike the program's other young reporters, who attended big name schools and worked at other big metro dailies, Wade put himself through community college, and lacks the same experience.

Wade struggles with his haunting past as he pursues the story of Karen Harding, a college student whose car was found abandoned on a lonely stretch of highway in the Pacific Northwest. How could this beloved young woman with the altruistic nature simply vanish? Wade battles mounting odds and cut-throat competition to unearth the truth behind Karen Harding's disturbing case. Her disappearance is a story he cannot give up, never realizing the toll it could exact from him. The Dying Hour is a bone-chilling, mesmerizing tale that introduces listeners to an all-too-human young hero who journeys into the darkest regions of the human heart to confront a nightmare.

    Story
    "Why isn't this author getting recognized? Excellent book..."

    This is such a good author who pulls his books from his own experience as a crime reporter. In "The Dying Hour" Rick Mofina has written a taunt suspense that moves along rather quickly, keeps the listener on the edge and complex enough to keep you guessing until the end. Actually this book points to one individual almost from the beginning only to throw in a plausible twist at the end.
    Young women are being kidnapped and brutally tortured. Our hero Jason Wade who is a relative newbie that is consistently thwarted by his boss but refuses to give up. There are a few background conflicts going on which help to make flesh out the story. There are no dull moments and I was sorry to come to the end. I am hopeful that this is the beginning of a new series, this character has tons of potential.
    Paul Costanzo did an excellent job narrating.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
