Years ago, Katie Sanford’s husband was convicted of the murder of Jenny Robbins, then died himself in prison. It’s a small town and memories are long, and Katie and Jenny’s husband, Chief of Police Jake Robbins, have had to work at putting the tragedy behind them. But it's all brought up again in the wake of a hurricane which has just wreaked havoc on their quiet Maine town. Since its founding, Wilton has had a quaint tradition of creating a time capsule every 50 years, and the storm unearthed the most recent capsule. As the editor of the local paper, Katie joins Chief Robbins to supervise its opening. Neither of them is prepared for the macabre set of predictions, dating back to months before Jenny’s murder, that they find inside. Someone predicted her death, as well as 11 other tragedies, which are still occurring even long after the death of Katie’s husband.
At last, after all these years, Katie has reason to hope that her husband might not have been guilty of Jenny’s murder after all. But as she and Jake race to stop the next predictions from coming true, they find themselves caught in a terrifying mind game with no rules…and life or death consequences.
In Without Warning, David Rosenfelt has written another tightly plotted thriller that will hold listeners in its grip from the opening page all the way through to the stunning conclusion.

A "could-not-put-it-down" police procedural!
- Kathi "Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy."
Rosenfelt has never written the nitty gritty crime dramas that I have come to expect from other writers. He has written the funny, witty and nice murder mysteries that are the Andy Carpenter series. Stick with those. This book does NOT allow you to think of anything for yourself. For example if a character opens a door, the author will be sure to tell you he walked *through* the door. Except for some curse words, I think a 5th grader might even get insulted reading this book as it spells everything out. It's trite and lots of things are horribly contrived.
Removed any first person narrative. Not spelled out every detail - especially with the horrible habit of two verbs i.e. "we asked for AND requested a table." There is a lot of that in the book.
Nice timbre but except for 2-3 characters, they sound like cartoons.
no. However, if the same basic story were written by another writer it would probably be okay. Still it moves toward far fetched at the end.
LOVE Andy Carpenter but this fails.
