Publisher's Summary

Cam Richter, needing a break from his too eventful detective career, is in search of more peaceful pastures in the North Carolina countryside. He buys a 700-acre antebellum plantation, the perfect location for restful solitude, but it doesn't take long for him to discover that his new locale is not as quiet as he'd hoped.

Almost immediately, Cam finds himself caught up in mischievous pranks around his land, the site of a Civil War-era massacre. When the pranks turn hostile, however, he realizes he's been targeted by a killer who holds him responsible for something Cam is pretty sure he never did. As he tries to find out why someone wants him dead, he begins to uncover the secrets of his plantation and how the land's tragic history is still tangled up in the present.

Cam will need all of his resources, including his redoubtable German shepherd companions, to stay alive as he deals with a determined stalker, some very eccentric people, and all the entanglements of a place suddenly alive with secrets and the fruits of a bloody past.

Change of pace for Cam via small Confederate town

I very much enjoyed the book and would recommend it. I like to start with the first in a series and read straight through so after Cat Dancers I immediately went to Spider Mountain. Both were enjoyable, especially the dogs. Then Moonpool, which I do NOT recommend and suggest you skip entirely. The story is confusing and, in my opinion, badly written. It's only redeeming quality is the dogs. And I've just finished Nightwalkers, I liked it as well and will buy the next in the series when I find it. All that said, I always like Dick Hill and although his "female voices" are sometimes a bit like nails on a blackboard, he is one of the best!

Better then Moonpool

This 4th book in the series is great, better then Moonpool which was a little disappointing.

If you haven't started this series begin with 'The Cat Dancers' which is a great cop / suspense novel.

A Creditable Entry

I've been a Deutermann fan since his first novel, The Edge of Honor. This was a good Cam Richter story, much, much better than Spider Mountain, which required way too much disbelief. Particularly compelling was his depiction of folks still living in the old old(!) South, and his portrayal of the subtleties of small-town politics.

This is a fun read with a great twist, as can be expected from Deutermann.

Possible issues with the playback?

Good story. Of course Cam is always leaving is gun in the car or other room which is weird especially when someone is after him. There were some weird issues around chapter 27 where is seemed to skip some setup pieces but overall a good book. I still need to go back and listen to Moonpool... I skipped it because the narrator was terrible.

Not for listening in noisy places

Dick Hill uses vocal dynamics - and his voice disappears when we play his reads in the car. Deutermann's stories are fun and complex, and it is a shame I can't enjoy the reading.

Another Winner for PT and Cam....

Just discovered Deutermann a few weeks ago and have now read the 4-book Cam Richter series. More please! Being in North Carolina I enjoy his NC settings for all four. Pretty easy to guess his locales.

With Dick Hill's voice, its easy to compare Richter to Reacher.... if Reacher had Frick and Frack (and Kitty). Yes, there is a formula to the series.... nothing wrong with that. MUST read in order - Cat Dancers, Spider Mountain, Moonpool then this one. Now I will be reading Deutermann's non-Richter stories. Suggest you do too!

Deutermann delivers another wonderfull thriller

If you could sum up Nightwalkers in three words, what would they be?

Intense twists and turns

What did you like best about this story?

All the twists and turns and trying to figure which way the story line would turn.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The different voice inflections and different voices. I listen to a lot of audio books and Dick is the best.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Cam decided to keep the two dobermans.

Any additional comments?

This was a great read, the story was developed well and the narrator's performance as always was fabulous.

P T Deutermann Does It Again

Another well developed story, with another unusual setting - this time a little fanciful, if you will. Love those German Shepherds.
