Overview

“J. Carson Black's THE DEVIL'S HOUR is a superior mystery novel in all respects. Fine prose, terrific suspense, believable characters, and one of the most unexpected and satisfying conclusions I've read in a long time. Highly recommended."
---John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of THE HUNTER

In 1997, the disappearance of three young girls rocked the city of Tucson, Arizona. Eleven years later, one of those girls, Micaela Brashear, comes home--alive.

Detective Laura Cardinal worked homicide for Arizona DPS, but now she's been moved to the Open-Unsolved Unit. With a new job and a new partner who questions her every move, Laura pieces together Micaela's fragmented memories in the hope she will learn the whereabouts of the other two children.

When a man walking his dog finds the bones of a child in a shallow grave on the mountain above town, it becomes clear to Laura that Micaela was the lucky one.

But the killer isn't through yet, and after the fiery death of someone close to Laura, she realizes she faces an implacable enemy.

Editorial Reviews

Before It's News - Joan Reeves
In The Devil's Hour, Laura has been assigned to the cold case unit. With her usual astute ability to put the pieces of a puzzle together, she's perfect for this new job. In fact, by the end of the book, you'll probably wish she wasn't that good. The inexorable forward motion of the plot made me wish that it wasn't going to end the way it did. Yet the ending was perfect for the story even though it was wrenching for Laura.

Meet the Author

Hailed by bestselling author T. Jefferson Parker as "a strong new voice in American crime fiction," J. Carson Black has written fourteen novels. Her thriller, The Shop, reached #1 on the Kindle Bestseller list, and her crime thriller series featuring homicide detective Laura Cardinal became a New York Times and USA Today bestseller. Although Black earned a master's degree in operatic voice, she was inspired to write a horror novel after reading The Shining. She lives in Tucson, Arizona.

A man driving an old car tried to abduct her as a child, following her through an empty Tucson neighborhood. Her friend's mother, who happened to be outside, scared the driver away. Black remembered exactly what the car looked like--a 1955 Chevrolet sedan, orange over white. The sedan makes an appearance in DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, although the victim in the story isn't so lucky.

A Tucson, Arizona native, Black writes about the New West.

    The Devil Is Not In The Details

    After 200+ pages the boredom forced me to give up. This story develops so slow that it repeatedly lulls you to sleep. I must have dropped my Nook 4 times while attempting to grit my way into something of interest. The author should find another line of work. This is painfully slow and boring.
