For me starting this book was a bit of a struggle, because I didn’t read book proceeding this one “Evil at Heart” (but will be checking it out now). “Night Season” was a bit slow at the beginning but after I got into it and was straight who all the characters were I couldn’t put it down. The plot in “Night Season” is classic of a murder mystery, with an interesting choice of weapon, one I wouldn’t have though about. From my research this is the fourth book of Cain’s that features Portland. This book has an emotional aspect with the characters, a internal struggle and the ending is a ….. well you will just have to read it yourself.
