Publisher's Summary

He comes out when the sun goes down. He delivers death from the barrel of a rifle. He's made New York City his shooting gallery. Men and women, natives and tourists, young and old, have all been his victims. The press has named him The Night Sniper. He taunts those who would try to stop him, threatening to increase the body count unless legendary retired homicide detective Vin Repetto is willing to engage him in a lethal game of cat and mouse. Repetto paid his dues. Over 20 years on the force, obtaining a captain's rank and injured in the line of duty, he's earned his retirement. Yet he can't help feeling responsible for the lives The Night Sniper has taken, and will continue to take if his challenge remains unanswered. The decision is snatched from his hands when the next victim is murdered right before Repetto's eyes. Now, the game is truly set to begin, but The Night Sniper doesn't realize that they're playing by Repetto's rules

Gripping and Predictable

I really loved "Fear the Night" and Lutz does himself proud with the riveting story of the night stalker terrorizing New York City in a post 9/11 mindset. Nobody does this stuff better than Lutz and I am always eager to read and or listen to his brilliant predictability. Everything always turns out right and the good guys, often injured, just never bite the bullet. Still, in hindsight, while he keeps you enthralled all the way to the end, you never should have had any doubt that in Lutz-world the nice guys always win.

Fear the Night

Well written, fast paced. Worth listening to. Would have liked a slightly different ending, but ultimately the author puts everything together well, drawing to a dramatic close.
