This time it’s personal for female FBI Agent Atlee Pine. She is looking for her sister, Mercy, and/or her abductor. It is an ice-cold case having happened thirty years earlier when the girls were both six. But Atlee is determined even when there is only A Minute to Midnight.
Atlee’s daddy is dead and she has lost touch with her mom. To finally be relieved of her survivor guilt, she decides to investigate the scene of the crime. After reaching her hometown of Andersonville, Georgia, now a civil war tourist attraction, Atlee and her assistant Carol are drawn into another local case. A serial killer is stalking the young woman of the town and posing them after death as World War II-era brides. Did Atlee’s interest in the old case cause the new slate of murders? If so, how are the two cases connected?
I have yet to be disappointed by a book by David Baldacci—and this book is no exception. It is twisty, atmospheric, fast-paced, and surprising. To avoid spoilers, it is hard to say more. But take my word for it, if you enjoy gripping thrillers with great plots and unique characters, please pick up A Minute to Midnight. You won’t be sorry. 4.5 stars!
