Waiting on Wednesday - The Night Season



Hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. Here's your opportunity to share what "coming soon book" you are anxious to get your hands on.

Here is my pick, book #4 of a series that I have enjoyed a lot.

The Night Season; Chelsea Cain
March 1, 2011

Chelsea Cain launches the next stage of her bestselling series as Archie Sheridan works to regain his life and Susan Ward steps in to share the spotlight in this electric thriller from one of today’s most talented suspense writers.

With Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Portland detective Archie Sheridan can finally rest. Meanwhile, the city of Portland is in crisis. Several people have drowned in heavy rains that have flooded the Willamette River. But the medical examiner discovers that in fact the latest victim was poisoned before she went into the water—she didn’t drown. A little detective work shows that so far three of those previously thought to be accidental drownings have actually been murdered. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case. Meanwhile reporter Susan Ward is following up on an entirely separate mystery: the dramatic flooding has unearthed a skeleton, a man who might have died during catastrophic flooding more than sixty years ago that washed away an entire neighborhood and killed at least 15 people. As Archie follows the bizarre trail of evidence and evil deeds to catch his killer, he has to battle the rising waters of the Willamette first.

  12. I read the first one in this series and I remember getting some flack from some customers who came back to return it after my recommend. They did not like the fact that it was about a female serial killer.
    Well, i TOLD them it wasn't a cozy...sheesh.

  16. Do you know that the last series I read was the Little House on the Prairie series when I was 10? What is wrong with me? I need to get with it. Not even Harry Potter. I know!

    I like serial killer slash thriller slash detective books, too. I should try this out :)

  18. Love Chelsea Cain's books. She's a local author (Portland OR) so has been on my radar since before the first book. Funny story. My husband had some minor heart issues and had to be hospitalized. I picked up my current read "Heartsick" as we were heading to the hospital, not realizing the title implications. Once I recognized my mistake, the next day I brought a lighter read! Book was great and husband is fine.
