What a disappointment to see it fall apart in its resolution. Jan 13, Tiffeny rated it liked it. I started off planning to give this book a five. By the time I got to the end though, I couldn't bring myself to give it more than a 3, but it would probably be a 3. I have a couple of comments so I'm going to break them into bullets.
Then he kind of got stupid. Maybe being accused of murder makes you irrational, but I thought he did and said some really stupid things I started off planning to give this book a five. Maybe being accused of murder makes you irrational, but I thought he did and said some really stupid things.
I really really liked that. But alas, one hit on Disc 5.
It's like Steven Hamilton was writing and as he approached the end of the book he said, "Oh, shoot. I haven't added any F-Words yet. I better get that done. There were 4 total in the book. While I would have preferred none, 4 isn't bad for a book like this and I actually gave him that extra half star because of that. It's probably because I now have a vested interested, but I don't like it when stories portray law enforcement like that. Possible Spoiler Alert, but not Really --The Conclusion: While there was an unexpected twist I didn't have it figured out at all , the conclusion went on forever.
Like for 2 whole disc, and by the end, I was like "enough already". Overall,I liked the book and will probably try this author again. Dec 07, Dana rated it really liked it. Joe claimed he didn't kill the women despite the evidence that mounted against him. Of course, the false accusations set Joe on a mission to find the real killer, and drew him into a web of mystery. Joe was a good main character because he displayed a range of emotions and was likeable.
I sympathized with him when he tried to explain himself to the detectives, but felt they didn't listen. The writing was direct and moved quickly. The conversations were good and the cop talk wasn't the boring dialogue so common in police investigation mysteries. I loved that it was obvious that the real killer was one of the characters in the book, but there weren't many clues about who it was until the end of the story. The final twists were pretty sick and mental! The book was a combination of mystery, thriller, and detective investigation all together.
I liked everything about this story! I already looked up other books by Steve Hamilton and am anxious to try them. If you like mysteries with a little humor, then you must try this one. Joe Trumbell works in upstate New York as a probation officer. When the book opens he is about to go on a blind date: his first since his fiancee Laurel was murdered two years ago.

I was trying to make sense of the clues along the way but didn't guess what the final outcome would be. After a slightly slow start, the book picks up momentum and makes for a fast read to the end.

Yes the eventual conclusion is pretty silly, but no worse than most books in this genre. I enjoyed this book.

May 04, Ed rated it liked it Shelves: law-enforcement , crime. Finalist Gold Dagger Award. Here is a case where I don't agree with the award. After 7 entries in the award winning Alex McKnight series about an ex-cop in northern MI, author Hamilton has produced this unsatisfying stand-alone about a probation officer in upstate NY.
Kingston detective Howie is on Joe's side but State Investigators suspect him. Atmosphere and characterization of Trumbell is good but plot is weak and wrap-up is terrible.

Joe Trumbull is a probation officer who has the worst luck with women imaginable. The woman he was going to marry was killed the night of his bachelor party two years ago. Now every woman he talks to winds up dead. Story is interesting but the title makes no sense. The killer doesn't always operate at night and a probation officer doesn't do his job at night.

This book starts out a bit slow, but I was intrigued by the character. Somewhere around chapter four or five, though, it kicks into high gear and really doesn't let up. Basically you've got a main character who's kindasorta a boxer, trying to get over the grief of his dead fiancee or possibly newlywed; I forgot to write this review for a while from two years ago - case still unsolved.
He goes on a date. It actually goes pretty well. Then, 24 hours later, everything begins a very quick spiral into chaos.

I won't tell you whether he is or not, but I'll say that I was satisfied with the conclusion of the novel.
Some people have issues with the ending - some reviews are so critical, I was expecting UFO's to appear or something. While it certainly is Was it perfect?
