Thrilling Reads Review

An absolutely riveting and taut thriller that will keep you up at night reading, then looking around your room nervously.

I love Meg Gardiner’s Unsub series of FBI thrillers. THE DARK CORNERS OF THE NIGHT became my favorite of that series.

The Midnight Man is one of the creepiest serial killers. Reminds of the how Thomas Harris made my skin crawl when I read about Hannibal Lector and Buffalo Bill.

FBI behavioral analyst Caitlin Hendrix is still reeling from the events of the previous book in which she survived a bombing. So although still on edge she’s in Los Angeles to assist in the Midnight Man investigation.

Tightly written the story sucks you in as you follow Caitlin and the rest of the crew as they hunt down a serial killer that’s destroying families.

A riveting book that made my top ten favorite thrillers books of 2020.

It's safe to say that Alan Petersen loves mystery and thriller books. He writes high-octane thrillers, hosts the MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR podcast, and reviews thriller/mystery books.
