The Killing Hour: An Fbi Profiler Novel

by Lisa Gardner

Random House Publishing Group | September 28, 2004 | Mass Market Paperbound

The Killing Hour: An Fbi Profiler Novel is rated 5 out of 5 by 6.
Each time he struck, he took two victims. Day after day, he waited for the first body to be discovered--a body containing all the clues the investigators needed to find the second victim, who waited...prey to a slow but certain death. The clock ticked--salvation was possible.

The police were never in time.

Years have passed; but for this killer, time has stood still. As a heat wave of epic proportions descends, the game begins again. Two girls have disappeared...and the clock is ticking.

Rookie FBI agent Kimberly Quincy knows the killer’s deadline can be met. But she’ll have to break some rules to beat an exactingly vicious criminal at a game he’s had time to perfect.

For the Killing Hour has arrived....

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gardner at her best Killing Hour is perhaps my favourite novel by Ms. Gardner. Gardner has the ability to create characters that are simply frightening.This villain hunts for victims where they feel safe...when they are with a buddy. This story has the perfect mix of everything I like to find in my mystery novels. Well thought out story, believable characters that you become invested in, a great ending with just the right amount of romance thrown in. Lisa Gardner is perhaps the best kept secret in the suspense/mystery/action genre

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Page Turner I've read most of Ms. Gardner's books. In fact the only one I haven't read is 'Gone'. This book was great as usual. A real page turner, I even prayed for one of the victims, that's how much it took me in.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER 1 Quantico, Virginia 3:59 p.m. Temperature: 95 degrees "God, it''s hot. Cacti couldn''t take this kind of heat. Desert rock couldn''t take this kind of heat. I''m telling you, this is what happened right before dinosaurs disappeared from the Earth." No response. "You really think orange is my color?" the driver tried again. "Really is a strong word." "Well, not everyone can make a statement in purple plaid." "True." "Man-oh-man, is this heat killing me!" The driver, New Agent Alissa Sampson, had had enough. She tugged futilely on her 1970s polyester suit, smacked the steering wheel with the palm of her hand, then blew out an exasperated breath. It was ninety-five outside, probably one hundred and ten inside the Bucar. Not great weather for polyester suits. For that matter, it didn''t work wonders for bulletproof vests. Alissa''s suit bled bright orange stains under her arms. New Agent Kimberly Quincy''s own mothball-scented pink-and-purple plaid suit didn''t look much better. Outside the car, the street was quiet. Nothing happening at Billiards; nothing happening at City Pawn; nothing happening at the Pastime Bar-Deli. Minute ticked into minute. Seconds came and went, as slowly as the bead of sweat trickling down Kimberly''s cheek. Above her head, still fastened to the roof but ready to go at any minute, was her M-16. "Here''s something they never tell you about the disco age," Alissa muttered besid
