Goodreads review of Night Victims

Good Night, Sleep Tight

A computer programmer, a casting director, a call girl. The victims have nothing in common except the manner in which they spent their last night--wrapped in their own bed sheets in a bloody ritual of slow, agonizing death.

. . . And Never Wake Again

For NYPD Captain Thomas Horn, this adversary is unlike any he has met before. Methodical and highly skilled, the killer is always one step ahead, able to enter buildings without detection and leave no trace behind. To stop this deadly rampage, Horn must unlock the secrets of a cunning enemy who is saving his most shocking surprises for last. . .

Good morning Roy. On the second in a long series of books by James Grippando, Beyond Suspicion. Think there are over 20 in the series and I probably won't read them in order. Enjoy your day!

I have read only five of the Grippando books. We have several on the shelf to read. More reading to do!

Sounds like an exciting story, Roy, but scary. I wonder if I'd sleep at night after reading this one.

I'm with Nina, might have to read this one during the bright lights of daylight. Lol.
