The Night Shift starts with the murder of several young people at a Blockbuster Video store on New Year’s Eve 1999 and quickly shifts to a similar murder at an ice cream store in 2015. Alternating chapters are seen through the eyes of several characters. Sarah Keller is a “badass” FBI agent, who doesn’t let her being nine months pregnant stop her from doing her job. Chris is a defense attorney with a secret identity that could destroy his career if discovered. Ella is the sole survivor of the Blockbuster massacre, who is called upon to help the sole survivor of the current massacre.
Together these three voices tell a story that keep the readers on the edge of their seats. The supporting characters are equally interesting as the plot twists and turns and points in different directions before the truth is finally revealed. Hopefully, Finlay has been busily writing his third novel, because I, for one, can’t wait to read it.
