Publisher's Summary

Each time he struck, he took two victims. Day after day, he waited for the first body to be discovered - a body containing all the clues the investigators needed to find the second victim, who waited...prey to a slow but certain death. The clock ticked - salvation was possible.

The police were never in time.

Years have passed; but for this killer, time has stood still. As a heat wave of epic proportions descends, the game begins again. Two girls have disappeared...and the clock is ticking.

Rookie FBI agent Kimberly Quincy knows the killer's deadline can be met. But she'll have to break some rules to beat an exactingly vicious criminal at a game he's had time to perfect.

For the killing hour has arrived...

Story is Good....

The narrator is hard to warm up too... she does well with Kimberly, but the male voices are just well not right. The story is intricate and well done, the ending is electric. If you can adjust to the voice the book plot will carry you ...

Good, but rushed..

Good book. I feel it could have been better if it haden't been so rushed. New people in this book were introduced too early. I think it could have been much more intresting if it haden't felt as tho the auther was just trying to bring it to an end. Worth a free credit, although I don't know if its worth paying for. Not the Lisa Gardner we know and love!
