With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan—a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims—can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that's what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn't drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water. Soon after, three of those drownings are also proven to be murders. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case. Reporter Susan Ward is chasing this story of a new serial killer with gusto, but she's also got another lead to follow for an entirely separate mystery: The flooding has unearthed a skeleton, a man who might have died more than sixty years ago, the last time Portland flooded this badly, when the water washed away an entire neighborhood and killed at least fifteen people. With Archie following the bizarre trail of evidence and evil deeds to catch a killer and possibly regain his life, and Susan Ward close behind, Chelsea Cain—one of today's most talented suspense writers—launches the next installment of her bestselling series with an electric thriller.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

You have to hand it to Cain, who's made the serial-killer genre a thoroughly female-friendly experience.… [She] churns stomachs with a delicate touch. The New York Times Book Review on Evil at Heart
We've been down Hannibal Lecter Avenue many times, and these two books shouldn't work...but they do. Chalk it up to excellent writing and Cain's ferocious sense of humor. Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly on Sweetheart
The forces that conspired to make Cain's Heartsick a bestselling page-turner last year have reunited in its sequel.... With her preternatural grasp of pacing and ability to create vivid characters with astonishing economy, Cain expertly drives her narrative. Los Angeles Times on Sweetheart
Steamy and perverse. The New York Times on Heartsick
She's the most twisted--and most beautiful--serial killer on the planet, and she's back.… It's not to be missed. USA Today on Evil at Heart
Superb… [Cain is] the new queen of serial-killer fiction. Kirkus Reviews
…Christine Delaine's inspired interpretation of the ditsy, self-effacing, surprisingly professional reporter and intuitive sleuth. Her sotto voce, monotone Archie, is on the money, too. He sounds as if he's still a long way from recovering from the mental and physical damage caused by Lowell. Publishers Weekly
Christina Delaine's expert portrayal of the lead female character is spot on…Delaine also does a credible job with the lead male character, Archie…He has been badly injured, and Delaine rises to the challenge of giving voice to his damaged throat and developing pneumonia…the overall tension, humor, and pathos remain strong. AudioFile Magazine
Superb…Cain pinned readers to their seats with a unique mix of horror, black humor, and psychological tension. This time she adds another arrow to her narrative quiver: the interplay between landscape and mood…. Terrifying. Booklist (starred review)
“A suspenseful story of buried secrets and the tales that long-dead men can tell, The Night Season comes alive from Christina Delaine's stellar narrative performance. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys listening to a good, spine-chilling mystery. The Midwest Book Review
