The Night Season | [Chelsea Cain]

The Night Season

With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan—a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims—can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that’s what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn’t drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water.

Publisher's Summary

With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan—a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims—can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that’s what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn’t drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water.

Soon after, three of those drownings are also proven to be murders. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case.

Reporter Susan Ward is chasing this story of a new serial killer with gusto, but she’s also got another lead to follow for an entirely separate mystery: The flooding has unearthed a skeleton, a man who might have died more than 60 years ago, the last time Portland flooded this badly, when the water washed away an entire neighborhood and killed at least fifteen people. With Archie following the bizarre trail of evidence and evil deeds to catch a killer and possibly regain his life, and Susan Ward close behind, Chelsea Cain—one of today’s most talented suspense writers—launches the next installment of her best-selling series with an electric thriller.

    "Good. Not great but good."

    There is no Gretchen in this book. And to those who have read the first 3 that will be disappointing. But most disappointing is that they changed narrators and I personally didn't love the new one. I am looking forward to the next installment and hope that she writes Gretchen in to the story line. Still worth listening to though!

    "Poor narration - stopped halfway through"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I couldn't even finish listening. The reader read with such a monotone that I kept losing interest. I'm pretty sure it isn't the story since I've loved Chelsea Cain's other books.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Chelsea Cain? Why or why not?

    Not with same narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christina Delaine’s performances?

    NO WAY!!


    Was The Night Season worth the listening time?

    No

    "This narrator is fantastic"
    What made the experience of listening to The Night Season the most enjoyable?

    The narrator of the prose is wonderful. The story is classic Chelsea Cain. Couldn't wait to read the next book.....


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was a good CC story.


    What about Christina Delaine’s performance did you like?

    She is a wonderful narrator. She is melodic and almost hypnotic. She is the best of the best.....

    "a new direction"

    yes, there's no Gretchen in this book, but I didn't mind, we spend the whole book with Susan and Archie and got to know them better. I felt like the author used this novel to set-up some new stories for our beloved characters down the road, which I am looking forward to. I missed the previous narrator for all of 5min, yes she was great, but Christina Delaine made it her own. I will be keeping my eye out for the next installment, here's hoping there is one!

    "good"

    but not great... I enjoyed the book but I think the previous books were better. A continuation of Archie and company on a different case. Still a good story worth your time and or credit
