It’s New Year’s Eve. 1999. While most of the world is out partying or hiding from Y2K. Five teens are working the night shift at the local blockbuster. Only one will survive the night.
Fifteen years later an eerily similar massacre just occurred at the local ice cream shop. Once again, only one teen survived.
Do you believe in coincidences?💁🏻♀️ Me neither!
This was a fantastic, twisty thriller that kept me guessing throughout. Including lots of twists I never could have imagined.
My second read by this author and looking forward to seeing what he has in store for us next.
A buddy read with Susanne.

A look back on New Year’s Eve, 1999, and Y2K. It almost seems like a distant memory, but then again it is!
On New Year’s Eve in 1999 at a Blockbuster Video in Linden, New Jersey – an assailant goes on a shooting spree, killing four teenage girls. There is one survivor. Her name is Ella.
Fast forward 15 years later, another shooting spree occurs in the same town, this time at an Ice Cream shop. Once again, there is a lone survivor. Her name is Jesse.
After surviving the Blockbuster attack, Ella became a counselor and as it turns out, she is the only person Jesse will talk to.
The FBI, together with the police are now investigating both shootings as the original suspect got away.
Caught in the middle of this mess is Chris, the brother of the original suspect who is now an attorney representing the individual accused of the second crime. Talk about a conflict of interest!
Tense, taut, and fast-paced, this thriller was quite entertaining, albeit predictable.
In The Night Shift, Alex Finlay brings back FBI agent Sarah Keller, her boss Stan, and her fabulous husband Bob, who always brought a smile to my face.
A buddy read with Kaceey that both of us enjoyed.
Thanks to NetGalley and Minotaur Books for the arc.
