A Minute to Midnight – David Baldacci
This is the second of the Atlee Pine series by David Baldacci. I’ll admit I didn’t like the first one that much. Thank goodness, I didn’t throw in the towel in the series. This is a thrill ride.
The story picks up from the first one. After visiting a notorious killer in prison, Atlee goes to her hometown with Carol Blum, her assistant, hoping to find more about her past and to solve her sister’s abduction.
What do you know? A body shows up. And another one and another one. She’s in the middle of it—it’s a small town; the suspects are people from her past.
She discovers more secrets about her family, including one big surprise (I kind of suspect it) at the end.
