By turns horrifying and erotic, critically-acclaimed author Thomas Perry's new thriller takes us on a dangerous cat-and-mouse game that pits two women against each other: a beautiful serial killer and the detective who is determined to stop her. When the cousin of Los Angeles underworld figure Hugo Poole is found shot to death in his Portland, Oregon, home, police find nothing at the scene of the crime except several long strands of blond hair hinting that a second victim may have been involved. Hotel security tapes from the victim's last vacation reveal an out-of-focus picture of a young blond woman entering and leaving his room. Could she also be a murder victim? Portland homicide detective Catherine Hobbes is determined to solve the case and locate the missing blonde, but her feelings, and the investigation, are complicated when Hugo hires private detective Joe Pitt to perform a parallel investigation. As Joe and Catherine form an uneasy alliance, the murder count rises-and both realize that the pretty young woman in the security tapes is not a victim at all. As Catherine follows the evidence, she finds herself in a deadly contest with an unpredictable adversary capable of changing her appearance and identity at will. Catherine must use everything she knows, as a homicide detective and as a woman, to stop a murderer who kills on impulse and with ease, and who becomes more efficient and elusive with each crime.

    " Wow - what a superb character study. Fascinating look into the minds of two women and, for the most part, I think the author got it right. He's either in tune with his feminine side or he has a couple of goods friends who are female and he listens to them. The audio version is well read. My only quibble is at the ending, apparently a scene break indicator is missing. The pacing is ruined by the lack of a pause. It's so bad, it's jarring. Otherwise, an excellent read and highly recommended. "

    " i know psychopaths are a common attraction -- books and movies teem with them -- but i find it impossible to muster even the tiniest interest in them. do i read empathetically? i think i do. i can't empathize with psychopaths. i barely made it to the end of In Cold Blood, though i did read the Ripley trilogy. but then, ripley is cool, as is hannibal lecter. they are psychopaths who care for *something*, so i can care for them.

    " 'Night Life' was my first exposure to Thomas Perry and what an introduction it was! 'Night Life' tells the story of a serial killer a little less true to form and very unassuming whose pursued by legacy cop Catherine Hobbs (long standing family history on the force). Eventually the female serial killer turns on Catherine and becomes the hunter with the results truly startling. I loved the way Thomas made the killer change persona's and craft her victims into accomplices before growing tired and seeking new play things. There was a substantial amount of back story to the core characters all in context to current events woven so tight it didn't detract from the page turning anxiety I felt as I drew closer to the finish line. 'Night Life' ticked all the right boxes for me and I simply could not put it down - a great read from an author I'm keen to read more of. 4 stars. "

    " Another serial killer. Perry is pretty good at portraying realistic women, though. Ending was a bit abrupt. "
