Todd Ritter's explosive mystery, "Devil's Night" [following "Death Notice" (Death Notice) and "Bad Moon" (Bad Moon)], is the most macabre, most horrifying novel in the Kat Campbell trilogy. All the action of this fast-paced thriller occurs within the timeframe of one day; and this day is one of my most loved holidays of the year, Halloween. All of my favorite holiday-themed slasher flicks of the seventies and eighties (e.g., "Halloween," "My Bloody Valentine," and "Black Christmas") were fondly remembered as I read "Devil's Night." In Perry Hollow, chaos reigns in the streets, vigilante rednecks are patrolling with shotguns, parties are canceled, and satanic symbols are found scrawled on buildings. People are dying! I love it!!
The icing on this already delicious cake is the horrible crime that the citizens of Perry Hollow perpetrated on an innocent woman many years ago. They killed her because she was different.Read more ›
from trying to guess who the culprit was. Just when I thought I had it all figured out--this is
cliché, I know, but so very true--Ritter surprised me and I realized I was wrong. And the end?
No way did I even come close to guessing it.
Kat Campbell is Perry Hollow's Police Chief. The town--and Kat--has already seen its
share of pandemonium. And now Kat is hoping things quiet back down again. But fire after
fire has her literally running all over town trying to save what's left of the historical buildings.
The first fire was the Historical Society and Exhibition Hall. And it's not just an arsonist Kat needs
to worry about. It's a murderer. The museum's curator Constance Bishop is found dead, slumped over a
wooden chest beneath the burning floor of the museum. The death wasn't a result of smoke inhalation or
the fire at all but from being whacked over the head. This is just the start of the next exhausting twenty-four
hours for Kat.
Her mind produces one suspect after another while she leaps headlong from one harrowing situation
into another, determined to stop the murdering arsonist from striking again. All while trying to figure out
the motive behind her town being attacked. It's a terrifying ordeal for her and those around her and she ends
up putting herself and others into very dangerous situations. The problem is, she's not sure if she can get out
of them alive before stopping the killer.
Ritter weaves a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat, literally. This author is now at the top
of my `must-read' list.

It was a great mystery who did it. I could not put the book down. Todd Ritter continues with his suspense. Great book.
I liked the style of writing that makes it easy to read but not all the descriptions, I like the fact no profanity is used and that is a plus for making a book easy to read.
I will keep trying the Kat Campbell series and hopefully Ritter will drop all the unnecessary descriptions.
