A Minute to Midnight

(Atlee Pine #2)


David Baldacci

A Minute To Midnight by David Baldacci is the second of three books, so far, featuring FBI Agent, Atlee Pine.    Midnight sees Atlee returning to her hometown to find out what became of her twin sister, Mercy, who was abducted when they were six.  The thirty-year-old kidnapping of her sister, Mercy, has been the main force behind Attlee joining the FBI.   However, her anger over the unresolved kidnapping nearly has her thrown off the FBI.

Upon arriving in her hometown in Georgia, with her assistant Carol Blum, she soon discovers that no one really knows who owns her family home.  She only seems to be in town a short while before being seconded by local police to help track down what proves to be a serial killer.

One body becomes two.  Two becomes three.   The FBI is called in to officially assist with the investigation.  During which Atlee may have been the target of an ambush shooting saved only by the fact that she was driving.

As with Long Road to Mercy, A Minute To Midnight is a good quick read/audiobook.  One thing which makes the audiobook stand out is that a male and a female narrator are used which gives more character to each voice.

The ending had me reaching for book 3 of the series, Daylight.
