What are the changes that convicted killer Sam Blue is innocent of the serial murders of three young women? Determined to clear his name, no matter the cost to her career, Detective Harriet Blue accepts a risky reassignment to a remote town where a diary found on the roadside reveals a murderous plan. And the first killing, shortly after her arrival, suggests that the clock is already ticking. Meanwhile, back in the city, a young woman holds the key to crack Harriet's brother's case wide open. If only she could escape the madmen holding her hostage.

    The book takes place in Australia, narration was done by someone with an accent. It was good for me, but someone who has trouble understanding accents in general might not be happy, and question my 5 star rating. This is the second in the Harriet Blue series, but you don't have to read the first to follow along. Without giving too much away, Harriet is a detective with authority and family issues who gets sent out of the city to stay out of trouble, but trouble finds her. The ending encourages one to see what happens next, but doesn't leave you with an irritating cliff hanger. I enjoyed the read, but probably will look at other series from Patterson to read next. Sometimes you identify with a character, sometimes you don't.

    Disappointed in this book overall, hard to follow this character, just unhappy with this story. Not sure if it is the narration, the accent. I tried but could not get into this book and couldn't get to the ending.

    I thought this book was intriguing. Well written and narration was great as well.

  • Joanne K.

    Very disappointed in the ending. I don’t necessarily believe in happy endings but this was ridiculous. I believe there is a future continuation of this story and I felt like a sucker listening to this story. This will be the last James Patterson novel I ever read or listen to.
