You think you have it worked out, then BAM! Another twist! Sitting on the edge of your seat is too mild of a description! I hate it when the books come to an end! Fabulous writer, fantastic stories, amazing story lines. I feel I really know Harry Boche.
I cannot get enough.

End of Watch is a compelling and chilling suspense novel which sees retired detective Bill Hodges back on the trail of his nemesis, Brady Hartsfield, the criminal the press called The Mercedes Killer. Foiled in his attempt to commit a second mass murder, Hartsfield is confined to a hospital brain-injury unit in a seemingly unresponsive state. But all is not what it seems: Brady is able to influence both his physician and the hospital librarian to commit crimes in the outside world.
