The characters are all excellent. Christian is a disturbed scientist who is methodical, precise, and slightly unhinged. His calculation and precision speak to sociopathy and unwavering focus on inflicting pain upon police departments that he feels are ineffective. He even empathizes with his victims, but doesn’t let that dissuade him from pursuing his goals. The victims’ emotions are palpable and the author humanizes them so well that you wish Christian’s machinations would be figured out immediately. The detectives’ frustration with their investigation and eagerness to stop Christian are poignant and make you feel for them. The dynamic between the detectives is well-done, with the seasoned Detective Hardwick taking the lead of a team with newer detectives who don’t always agree with his methods.
The ending of this book could have gone so many ways. The final disposition of the case for the Atlanta Police Department didn’t really do it for me, but the very end of the book was perfect and provided something close to catharsis spurred by empathy. Christian’s mentality, Detective Hardwick’s determination, and the victims’ plight will keep you turning the pages and yearning for a resolution. I highly recommend this fairly quick read for anyone who is a fan of the crime and thriller genres.
This novel presents a sort of hybrid, a circumstantial killer if you will, made, not born or shaped during the formative years, by adult life events rather than the childhood abuse patterns often ascribed to individuals who eventually become these monsters we have come to know in fact and fiction. A serial killer with a purpose and a mission. The approach is refreshing and well done. The author has considerable insight into forensics, police work and the shaping of the psyche by traumatic events. There is a lot of interesting detail, character development and attention to the story line. A lot of crime novels get lost along the way, this one does not.
To say that the ending is a surprise is an understatement. It is safe to say it is gritty, realistic and certainly possible. I don’t like when reviews spoil a movie or book, so I will say no more except that it sets this novel apart from many others who delve into the criminal life and times of a serial killer.
The plot is pretty well described and summarized in the Amazon description—a scientist who suffered an unsolved tragedy begins testing response times in different cities. The perverse experiment runs headlong into the extremely successful veteran detective Hardwick of the Atlanta Police Department. If you can set aside the current climate in the United States regarding policing, this novel is extremely exciting and a fun read.
The characters are well-developed while the plot continues to speed along. To do both is impressive and done very well in this novel. The figurative ticking timebomb of when the scientist, Christian Price, will strike again keeps the suspense tight and the action moving.
I loved the interaction of the characters and the way the plot develops. I really found the writing to be very well done. I did not have very high expectations for a novel that is relatively short, but the author does an amazing job of pacing and development and the book ended up, in my opinion, to be the perfect length.
Overall, the story is strong, the characters are fun and memorable, and the action exciting. If you love mysteries, then you should definitely pick this one up. You will really enjoy learning how this one turns out!
I found myself not wanting to put it down, eager to find out what was going to happen.
The novel starts out in Atlanta with Brooke Madison as she is heading to the parking garage. She's pretty scared, and then the readers find out why. Her co-worker, Sandra McIntyre died. She disappeared after entering the parking garage.
A few minutes later, the readers are introduced to Christian Price, who comes up behind Brooke and scares her. He wants her help with an experiment. When she refuses, he forces her to help. The experiment gives the police 36 hours to find Brooke.
The novel follows the police as they search for her and the victims to follow. The ones involved in the investigation are Captain Gary Parsons, Detective Steven Hardwick, Theodore Wilson, Emanuel Cortez, and Antoine Harding.
The novel also follows Christian Price as he plans more abductions. I love the ending of the book.
36 Hours is a well written novel. It has a great story line.
The novel is captivating. I can't say enough good things about it. I highly recommend anyone to read this book. It will not disappoint.
