About the Book
What connects a massacre in a Blockbuster video store in 1999 with the murder of four teenagers fifteen years later?
It’s New Year’s Eve of 1999 when four teenagers working late are attacked at a Blockbuster video store in New Jersey. Only one inexplicably survives. Police quickly identify a suspect, the boyfriend of one of the victims, who flees and is never seen
Fifteen years later, four more teenagers are attacked at an ice cream store in the same town, and again only one makes it out alive.
In the aftermath of the latest crime, three lives intersect: the lone survivor of the Blockbuster massacre, who is forced to relive the horrors of her tragedy; the brother of the fugitive accused, who is convinced the police have the wrong suspect; and FBI agent Sarah Keller, who must delve into the secrets of both nights to uncover the truth about the night shift murders…
Working at night is not something easy, can you imagine being attacked? On top of that, what if all your co-workers are dead and you are the only survivor? Welcome to the “Night Shift”.
This is a character driven story; of how a horror situation can change so many lives and there’s no point of return of it.
Be prepared for a fast-paced thriller; with multiple layers and situations to get lost that it’s quite impossible to not love every page of it.
I always love a good thriller with different characters talking. Ella is the first victim who still has nightmares. The brother of the main suspect who doesn’t believe of what police said. And of course, the FBI Agent Keller, who is investigating the case.
I don’t know which of the characters moved me more, how each of them want to discover the truth and so many possible killers that it’s impossible to not make your own guesses while reading it!
This is a twisted and intriguing book, for any thriller lover, believe me! Are you ready to enter to the “Night Shift”?
