Publisher's Summary

A young woman lies dead, strangled by a killer still prowling the sweltering, run-down neighborhood. The young wife of a police lieutenant receives threatening phone calls; the precinct's patrol cars are sabotaged; even the puppies the officers have adopted as mascots are savagely slain.
It looks like there's a psycho on the loose with a vendetta against the cops. And then the widow of a precinct cop is found horribly murdered. The signature of the first crime is on this one. But a deadly new element has been added - another murderer is imitating the first one's methods.

A Bit Too Much Going On For One Book I Got Lost

Night Watch struck me as a typical police detective book. There was a lot going on and at times I had trouble following. I think I would have preferred a more streamlined plot with less of the subplots and details that, to me, didn't really add to the story.

I'm not sure what era or time the setting was. It definitely felt dated – not that that is a bad thing – and certainly not in the 21st-century.

Performance: This is the second book I've listen to that Adam Zens has performed. My personal preference is for fast-moving narration, so I usually listen to my books at 2X speed. I did this that with this one and enjoyed the performance. I'm not sure why the negative reviews. I thought Zens did a good job!

Notes: Violence
Rating: R if it were in a movie theater,

I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select "yes" directly below this review? Thank you so much.

Please consider "following me" here on I purchase a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to and well known names. I also have the unique opportunity to review books from lesser known/new authors in all genres. Most of these books are not something that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and great narrators.

This may be a great book but.....

This may be a great story but unfortunately the narrator did such a poor job, I will never know. I got as far as chapter 5 but the frequent stammering, word mispronouncing and line repeating became too painful to listen. Someone please introduce this narrator to a good producer. This is one of the few times I requested my credit be refunded
