Years ago, Katie Sanford's husband was convicted of murdering Jenny Robbins and died in prison. In quiet Wilton, Maine, Katie and Jenny's husband, Police Chief Jake Robbins, had to work at putting the tragedy behind them. Then a hurricane hits, unearthing the most recent of the town's fifty-year time capsules. As editor of the local paper, Katie joins Chief Robbins to check the contents. Neither is prepared to find that someone had predicted Jenny's death, as well as eleven other tragedies that are still occurring.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Descriptions of Rosenfelt's latest stand-alone: Spooky. Creepy. Edgy. Chilling. Shuddery. What more could anyone want? The author of the Andy Carpenter series offers an offbeat premise. A snoozy Maine town fills a time capsule with predictions and instructions to open it in 50 years. After only five years, though, the capsule is broken by a flood, and folks get a premature look at the predictions. They're a shock. Some forecast vile things that have happened; others predict they're going to happen. Then they start happening, ahead of schedule, and they all obliquely involve police chief Jake Robbins. The novel steps into Michael Connelly ground as Robbins learns that the savage murders he's investigating are about him. The cop and the reader struggle together to figure out why. So effective is this approach that it's almost disappointing when the air of mystery evaporates as the plot becomes clear. The novel is a tad too long, and Rosenfelt's most engaging quality a sense of humor in the face of growing menace sometimes feels a bit inappropriate. Still, this is highly recommended for readers craving that elusive something different. --Crinklaw, Don Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Rosenfelt's latest hapless hero, Jake Robbins, is the police chief of Wilton, Maine, a job that becomes considerably more difficult after a powerful hurricane and flood unearth the town's 50-year time capsule about 46 years prematurely. It was put in the ground several months before Jake's wife, Jenny, was murdered. Inside, Jake finds are skeletal remains and a set of predictions about future crimes that accurately describes Jenny's death along with several other murders. Narrator Steitzer, who has recorded several of Rosenfelt's recent novels, uses a strong, resonant voice for the stalwart Jake. The police chief narrates much of the book, starting out casually and naturally, but becoming more emotional as the mysterious killer tightens the frame. Steitzer takes an appropriately more detached approach to the objective chapters. The men who work for Jake speak in different shades of gruff. The unsympathetic mayor sounds like the boisterous phony the author describes. Reporter Matt Higgins is aggressively ambitious. The result is a entertaining whodunit. A Minotaur hardcover. (Apr.)
