      Who is Nancy Kincaid? Madwoman? Schizophrenic? Or just the really nice person she believes herself to be? Whoever she is, the voices in her head urging her to kill are driving her crazy. And why don't her colleagues and family recognize her? Oliver, a soulful washed up poet, is central to the story, as is his brother Zach, a struggling druggie. The imagery concocted within these pages is electric. Hulking concrete pillars in the subway, lurking in the shadows, watching, waiting. Furry smiles, wa [...]

      Ah! This was a sneaky one! It grabs your attention with its first chapter, then it makes you wonder what is going on, then it is getting pretty confusing, like nothing makes sense anymore, and finally it turns out to be awesome! Every element of the puzzle finds its place and the final scenes reveal the whole image. A great thriller indeed.

      I would give this book 3.5 stars if I could. An interesting thriller that leaves you confused for most of the book, sometimes to the point where it becomes an impediment to enjoying it. However, the last 30 or so pages tie up the whole story very nicely and explain the confusing parts quite satisfactorily. The fluid ending lifted the book from its shaky beginnings and made it a worthwhile read. Stick with the confusing parts and you'll be happy you did in the end. Recommended.

      This is one of my favorite books. I remember when I read it I was just in awe and I couldn't put it down. I have read other books by Andrew Klaven but didn't care as much for them.

      This book was not originally on my list of things I wanted to read, but it was out on display at my local library advertised as a "haunting fall read, perfect for halloween."Having finished the novel I believe it was mis-shelved. I gave this two stars only because my initial expectations might have been off; judging by the books displayed by this one I was expecting more supernatural/horror elements within the story.This story revolves around Nancy Kincaid and Oliver Perkins. Nancy Kincaid shows [...]

      Halloween in Manhattan. Everyone has their bad days, but for Nancy Kincaid, this will be the worst of her life. Arriving at her office, her colleagues insist they have never seen her before. The only clue she has is a voice that whispers someone will be murdered that night--by 8:00, the Animal Hour.An opening that instantly draws you in by curiosity about the "what" and the "why" of the story and a breakneck pace kept me turning the pages. And while it's fun to be somewhat frustrated while readi [...]

      Overall this was a good book. I wasn't able to guess the plot turns ahead of time, and the action kept up through the end. It was definitely a fun read, and I would have given it 4 stars, except for a couple problems. First was the authors tendency to include a brief paragraph of relatively explicit sexuality periodically. The information conveyed in these cases could easily have been communicated without the sleeze, it was really quite jarring when it happened. The second problem was the charac [...]

      This was to me, one of the worst book i've read, the book starts pretty good, you get into the story easily, all the details sounds just about right and the characters are quite "alive" if i can say, but when you get past the first half, it seems like the author somewhat lacked of imagination, a friend of mine recommended this to me saying it was a really great one, but i guess everyone have their own tastes, and to me, this was a very long and boring book. Or this could be me having high expect [...]

      Brief review - typical Klavan - tight suspense - tight timeframe (everything happens in less than 24 hours) - in fact it feels like the TV show "24" with each chapter describing what one of the characters is doing simultaneously with the others.a little more violent, trying to be more like an old Stephen King novel. not his best, not his worst.

      This was the second Klavan book l've read. lt caught me on the first page and did not let go. So suspenseful, l tried to read faster so l could find out what and why!

      I loved the story . . . t'was exhilirating with all the twists and turns. unpredictable and exciting too bad I can't find a copy

      I was thinking I might enjoy this. Then I saw the author's blog. Can I actually read a book by an apparent right-wing lunatic. and like it?

      I could not put this one down! Read it years ago but still remember so much about it. I dare you to try to figure it out. Klaven is a master!
