Overview

A killer stalks habitual library abusers and exacts gruesome, yet fitting, revenge. Collection Development Librarian Nicholas Hardy is forced to cancel his vacation, and he soon learns of a major upheaval in library policy that effectively leaves him unemployed. A property-crimes police officer learns of another dead body with ties to thefts from the library. A connection between the killings and Hardy makes Hardy the prime suspect. When the real psychopath realizes that the police are getting close, he decides to implement his plan to cleanse the library once and for all. He releases a deadly nerve gas in the building and then takes the library director hostage. The final part of the criminal's plan will force Hardy to lead SWAT through a booby-trapped maze where death waits around every corner. It is up to Hardy to help rescue a man he hates from a madman he once considered his friend.

A great thrilling ride! Could not put it down! It is obvious Mr. Ayers thoroughly researched his subject in regards to the library and created characters that we cared about. While his style and set up of the plot and the pace are reminiscent of such authors like Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, Mr. Ayers has clearly established his own voice. I strongly recommend "Long Overdue" for a great read, and look forward to any future works by Jeff Ayers.
