Publisher's Summary

A race against time becomes a battle for the soul in this suspenseful story from New York Times best seller Jeffery Deaver.

Death is a topic Bradford Douglas is intimately familiar with. The young attorney is on a crusade against capital punishment. He’s saved a number of death row inmates, but none of his cases has been as tough as the one he now faces: Henry Combs, a vicious serial killer, has only hours to live when Douglas is summoned for a Hail Mary attempt to have the man’s sentence commuted to life imprisonment. 

As Douglas races to pursue whatever strategies he can think of, he finds his passion for justice giving way to something altogether different.

An obsession.

Did Not See The End Coming

Really good and certainly didn't see how it would end. I like to listen to short stories sometimes and this was definitely a good listen.

Twisted

The narrator did a really good job reading the story. After listening to this story I’m very happy because of two things.
1-This was a free listen and;
2-This was a short story.
I initially had it at one star, but after further thought I gave it two extra stars because there is no vulgar language in the story and that in itself has become such a rarity with so many authors of late.

Great short story

I really liked this story even though I predicted the ending. A good short story about a serial killer and the death penalty. Great narration.

A fantastic listen

I was a fan of Jeffery Deaver some years back and hadn't read any of his work in years. DATE NIGHT just reminded me why I was a fan. It made me angry, sad, frightened and, in the end, shocked. Loved it!

NOPE

Seriously!? The ending became incredibly predictable before it happened. So, in other words, there could have been an unpredictable and interesting ending. But instead, the story lazily walked down the obvious road of creepy, but complete predictability. How disappointing.

Creepy story and subject

This is a prime example that the human psyche can become twisted. Some folks have such strong convictions for topics that others are just as strongly against

slow but intriguing.

The story was kind of slow going but the ending very surprising. It's actually a pretty good book.
