The Night Season
by Chelsea Cain
Pub. date 3/1/11
Description: With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan — a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims — can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that’s what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn’t drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water. Soon after, three of those drownings are also proven to be murders. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case.
Chelsea Cain is back with another gripping serial killer novel that’s hard to put down. I haven’t read the other Archie Sheridan books (Heartsick, Evil and Heart and Sweetheart), but this book stands on it’s own. You may want to read them in order to see how the story unfolds, but that isn’t necessary.
This is one of my favorite genres and this book stands out as being unique. The characters, descriptive language and plot are quite entertaining.
The Night Season is fun for fans of psychological thrillers.
