5.0 out of 5 stars ONE MORE STUNNING NARRATION FROM DICK HILL, Oct. 15 2007
Gail Cooke (TX, USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Night Work(CD)(Unabr.) (Audio CD)
Looks can be deceiving, and so can feelings. Joe Trumbull learned this lesson not just the hard way but in a way that was almost fatal. To date, life hasn't been good to him. He's a juvenile probation officer in Kingston, New York. Some of the kids are petty offenders, others could be classified as hard-boiled criminals. So, we'd assume Joe was a pretty savvy guy. Perhaps so, but his mind is also clouded by tragedy.

It was two years ago that he was looking forward to marrying Laurel. Then, on the night of his bachelor party she was strangled. Since then Joe has turned inward, retreated, doing his job and working out at the gym. But now he thinks that just maybe he's ready to make a better kind of life for himself, so he goes out on a blind date. Surprisingly to him the evening went well. Shocking to him was the murder of his date later that same evening.

As other women are killed, women who had some contact with Joe, the police zero in on him as suspect No. 1. It seems the only way he can clear himself is to find the psychotic killer who is intent upon destroying him.

Edgar and Shamus winner Steve Hamilton has crafted a suspenseful tale, which is read by another winner - Dick Hill. Named a Golden Voice and a Voice of the Century by Audiophile magazine, Hill delivers one more stunning narration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wait for it...., April 26 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In this novel, Hamilton introduces a new character, probation officer and recreational boxer Joe Trumbull, who has lost the love of his life two years ago and is just getting back to the dating scene. Don't worry, this isn't a romance novel, but an interesting mystery. It starts off kinda slow, so you need to be patient, because it gets suspenseful and hard to put down. Early on, you may not believe it, but hang in there, because the pace quickens and the ending is worth the wait (I won't spoil it). You don't know who the killer is until late in the novel. I guessed correctly, but you don't really know until late in the book. I recommend this novel, and I also recommend Hamilton's series featuring Alex McKnight, but I suggest starting with the first in the series, A Cold Day in Paradise. Night Work is a stand-alone, for now (I'd like to see more of Joe Trumbull), so go ahead and read it now :D
