A madman’s obsession is a city’s nightmare …

He comes out when the sun goes down. He delivers death from the barrel of a rifle. He has made New York City his shooting gallery. Men and women, natives and tourists, young and old, have all been his victims. The press has named him The Night Sniper. He taunts those who would try to stop him, threatening to increase the body count unless legendary retired homicide detective Vin Repetto is willing to engage him in a lethal game of cat and mouse.

Repetto paid his dues. Over twenty years on the force, obtaining a captain’s rank, and injured in the line of duty, he’s earned his retirement. Yet he can’t help feeling responsible for the lives The Night Sniper has taken, and will continue to take if his challenge remains unanswered. The decision is snatched from his hands when the next victim is murdered right before Repetto’s eyes. Now, the game is truly set to begin, but The Night Sniper doesn’t realize that they're playing by Repetto’s rules.

    " 50ish pages in and I can't handle the writer's style anymore. THE guy doesn't have "IT" and doesn't take me away and make me forget I'm reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 10/26/2012

    " This was my first John Lutz book and I thought it was really good. Though some of the shootings got a little repetitive, it was very suspenseful right to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 8/9/2012

    " This one started out slow but got better as it progressed. I liked Repetto, though all of John Lutz's books seem to have the same characters and the same story lines, just different killers. I still like the Frank Quinn series the best. "

    " First book read from John lutz and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was fast paced and kept me near the edge of my seat. I guess that's what any book about a serial killer would do though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Al Canary | 11/15/2011

    " It was a fun read, with lots of "backstory" on the characters, but with no clue as to why the killer was so focused on the lead detective...??? Hmmmmm... I guess that this genre doessnt always have to contain plausability. LgGrin "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 6/27/2011

    " Very good and fast-paced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 1/25/2011

    " Fear the Night is an o.k. sniper/serial killer story. Good character development leads to big let down. Rework the ending and I would add a star. As it is, I would say "skip it." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 8/11/2010

    " I am a John Lutz fan and his books are just for fun, cop, serial killer kinda stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/9/2010

    " This was a story with interesting characters and a quick pace. It was good, but it has pretty graphic (and a multitude of) death scenes, and I kept feeling like this was a sequel to a previous book or series, but I don't find any evidence of that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 3/22/2010

    " Not a bad read - not quite police procedural, not quite thriller. Not really a mystery. I'm not sure it falls into a category...was expecting one of the three I guess. "
