There’s a twisted serial killer stalking the streets of New York City, dealing his own perverse version of justice. He kills swiftly and silently, leaving his calling card—a red “J”—on the bodies of his prey. His victims have one thing in common: they’ve all been jurors in the city’s most infamous cases—cases in which the killer was found “not guilty.” Overnight the justice killer has the city in a stranglehold. And there’s only one man who has a shot at finding him.

Homicide detective Artemis Beam made his reputation hunting down serial killers. After getting shot by an armed robber—and stepping on the wrong toes in the NYPD—he’s been retired. The city needs him now, and finding the killer is his chance to get back into the life he loves. As the body count climbs and the city’s legal system fails, the justice killer thinks he’s outsmarted the cops. But Beam isn’t officially a cop anymore … and he doesn’t have to play by the rules.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 4/18/2013

    " ok. thought the ending a bit contrived. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marca | 12/29/2012

    " Good mystery with plenty of suspense. Held my interest. Characters not annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marla | 11/16/2012

    " I had never read anything by John Lutz and got this book from the library. I loved this book and had no idea who the Justice Killer was until the very end of the book. This is a really good murder/detective novel. I will be reading more of his books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 11/11/2012

    " Oh the thrill of finding a new author! Especially one who already has written books I haven't read yet and who writes such a great story. Chill of Night had it all - intricate and sharp plot, sympathetic and excellent characters, and a snappy voice for the telling of the tale. I'm jazzed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 10/3/2012

    " Good thriller/ detective novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol0411 | 7/17/2012

    " First book I've read from this author. Very good book. Ending was a surprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 5/30/2012

    " Basically his books are all the same- retired policeman brought out of retirement to solve a serial killer crime in NYC. I don't know why he changes the main character and doesn't stick to the same one. They are always good however since I enjoy serial killer books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Maguire | 4/21/2012

    " Lutz' 'night' series are formulaic to the point of repetition: retired nypd detective is rehired by nypd to track a serial killer (I'm sure that happens with great regularity in NY), but they are rippin' yarns. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna Halloran | 3/19/2012

    " Not bad. Entertaining. Again, pretty violent. I am not sure I would read another lutz "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 12/5/2010

    " This one was a little slow but the ending was fantastic. I did not figure out the killer at all, which is always somewhat of a thrill for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 11/3/2010

    " I liked this book a lot even though there were a couple of times I had to just accept plot turns I couldn't believe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 10/8/2010

    " Good story but that kind of justice never works out well. I'll stick to our flawed system and hope for the best. And I never saw the ending!! "
