The Night Shift


Author: Alex Finlay 

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press 

Year: 2022

📖 𝗕𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄 📖

The Night Shift by Alex Finlay has already been popping up all over Instagram. His previous novel, Every Last Fear, was a huge favorite and I’m sure this book will be extremely popular too. 

The grisly murders of thee teenaged girls working in an ice cream shop has an eerie resemblance to the murders of three girls in a Blockbuster video store fifteen years earlier. The suspect in the Blockbuster murders disappeared without a trace just after the original murders. Could he be back? 

The story is told from multiple points of view. Ella is the lone survivor of the Blockbuster murders. She’s now a therapist and still trying to cope with her ordeal. Ella is asked to speak with the lone survivor of the ice cream shop killings. Ella feels an instant connection to the girl and wants to help her. FBI Agent Keller is brought in to help the local police department with the ice cream shop investigation. She’s smart, calm, fearless, and very pregnant. She was my favorite character. Chris is a young attorney working in the public defender’s office. He has a secret connection to the Blockbuster case that could ruin his life and career. 

Finlay deftly weaves the past and present murder investigations and the multiple points of view together. He also provides lots of twists and red herrings along the way to create a riveting mystery. I hope this isn’t the last we see of Agent Keller. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

Thank you to NetGalley  and St.  Martin’s Press  for the digital review copy. The Night Shift publishes March 1st. 

QOTD: How’s everyone doing so far this week? 

I’m doing good. I dropped all our paperwork off with our tax professional yesterday. That relieved some stress I didn’t even realize I had. 😅
