Hour Game (King & Maxwell)

Hour Game - David Baldacci Unlike the first book in the series, which was about secret service presidential candidate protection detail gone wrong, this one is a serial killer whodunit. If I drew a chart to illustrate the plot, it would look something like this: gradient slope (for ongoing investigation), steep (and short) incline for perpetrator conjecture, only to have a sudden and just as steep a fall in perpetrator elimination; a few of these spikes, and it gets rather old. For that 2 stars. In the spirit of generosity, I'd throw in another half a star for who it actually turned out to be because I didn't see that coming.
