    My favorite series

    This series is probably my favorite series to read now. The action starts on page one but it isn't too graphic in nature. There are times I can't put the book down. I have to read the next chapter, or at least start it, because I have to know what's going to happen. The author does such a great job at getting your interest and keeping it. I love the characters, too. Diane Fallon and her staff are fabulous. They are believable and 3-dimensional characters. The author has done a fabulous job. I can't wait to read the next one. I highly recommend this book. Matter of fact, I recommend you read the whole series!

    Reviewed for Midwest Book Review

    Beverly Connor's versatile thriller will appeal to readers on many levels. Her incorporation of forensics, geology and anthropology into an intriguing plot create an excellent whodunit. Connor tackles complicated forensics in several different fields, but her straightforward, didactic narrative not only proves intriguing and entertaining but easy to follow and understand. Connor's smart writing, evolving characters, captivating plots, and fascinating forensics ensure this series' continued popularity.

    Beverly Connor does it again.

    I love Beverly Connor's books and this one was no exception. Her style is consistent and her characters are always developed well. Can't wait for another one.

    Good read

    I really enjoy the Diane Fallon series! This is a great addition to it and takes a slightly different focus than some of the previous books. The conflict between Diane and Sheriff Conrad contributes to a good plot. I thought this book also was a really good ensemble work - many of her regular characters played important roles in the story.

    strong entertaining whodunit

    After visiting Roy and Ozella Barre who donating their arrowhead collection to the museum; Forensic investigator and museum curator Diane Fallon is driving down a winding mountain road on a dark and stormy night. Lightning strikes a tree, which falls onto her vehicle; a skull falls from the tree through her windshield. A man asks her if she is okay; when she mentions the skull, he grabs her.

    Diane breaks free of him and flees trying to return to the Barre home while the stranger releases his dogs. However Diane reaches their home only to find both dead. She owes her life to a stranger who got the dogs off her scent. Diane informs the local sheriff what happened including facts about her rescuer. She has doubts the sheriff can solve the case and another couple is discovered murdered in the same brutal manner as the Barrres were. Frank, the stranger who saved her life, is a private investigator hired to find a missing girl and her boyfriend. Against all advice to the contrary, Diane investigates, but a killer stalks her.

    Fans who enjoy the forensic cases of Kat Scarpetta and Temperance Brennan will want to read the Diane Fallon mysteries. The protagonist holds three jobs, but does each one quite well. Loaded with non-stop action, viable suspects and an incredibly deep atmosphere of danger, The Night Killer is a strong entertaining whodunit.
