A serial killer watches and waits. Each time, he takes two victims, preparing the first's body with all the clues the police need to find the second, who is still alive. The clock ticks, and the second one can still be saved. But the police never make it in time. The second one dies. For years, the killer has plagued the city with the same pattern, but the police never pick up on it quickly enough.

What disappointed you about The Killing Hour?

The narrator will put you to sleep. Voices for the male characters will make you cringe and want to stop listening.

What could Lisa Gardner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Pick a different narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anna Fields?

Anyone without a lisp

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Redeeming quality is that it is a Lisa Gardner book

What disappointed you about The Shack?

It turned into a far fetched Christian fantasy book --- NOT a mystery/thriller at all.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The first couple chapters were good . . .
