Also by Chelsea Cain. The Willamette was near flood stage. The local news was live with it day and night; they were considering evacuating downtown.

Also by Chelsea Cain. Floyd Wright came bursting into Williams’s office, red-faced and out of breath, his clothes dusty from the speeder. It’s bad, Floyd said. Williams stood up at his desk. But that was the Willamette. As Laura rounded the corner, past the trees, where the old concrete pavilion sat sinking into the slough bank, she was aware of her mouth opening. In the summer, the slough was still and flat, blanketed by algae so thick it looked solid enough to walk on.

Chelsea Cain is the New York Times bestselling author of Evil at Heart, Sweetheart, and Heartsick. Both Heartsick and Sweetheart were listed in Stephen King's Top Ten Books of the Year in Entertainment Weekly. Chelsea lived the first few years of her life on an Iowa commune, then grew up in Bellingham, WA, where the infamous Green River killer was "the boogieman" of her youth. The true story of the Green River killer's capture was the inspiration for the story of Gretchen and Archie. Cain lives in Portland with her husband and daughter.

The Night Season is Chelsea Cain's fourth book in the Archie Sheridan, Gretchen Lowell series - although this .

If you are new to the series, its best to begin at the beginning Heartsick rather than jump in here, although there are few enough references to previous story lines to make allowances for new readers. In The Night Season Chelsea Cain's continues her promising series of thrillers featuring detective Archie Sheridan and a fascinating cast of characters, with the free spirited reporter Susan Ward being at the epicenter of this adventure.

Susan thought it looked like one of those porn sets from the eighties in which the intern gets bent over a desk by an executive wearing nothing but a tie.

d never told Archie that. His desk chair didn’t even have arms. She spun around slowly on i. e’d blame himself. For losing the ki. here was a computer on Archie’s desk. The monitor was flat and black, but the CPU was older than the ones at the Herald. But it didn’t matter.

I don't normally read a book over a couple of days, but I couldn't put this one down!

Gretchen isn't a big character in this one, although she's never that far away from the story. The Night Season by Chelsea Cain follows Archie Sheridan and Susan Ward through the flooding streets of downtown Portland as they piece together a series of suspicious drownings. Susan's journalistic spidey-senses and Archie's detective work lead them into a world of hobbyist aquarium owners and their creepy saltwater tanks.

I found this to be a more "comfortable" serial killing story than some of Cain's previous works... And I don't know what that says about either the story, or me. A great tale that will have you rooting for Henry Sobel all the way.

I’ve seen people complaining about Gretchen not being in this one, but I honestly think it was a breath of fresh air compared the weirdness of book three. Cain does a good job showing how Archie operates when Gretchen isn’t in the picture, which is something it’s been really hard to ascertain thus far given Gretchen’s overwhelming influence on him.

I think it was interesting to see some Archie development that wasn’t directly related to his connection with Gretchen, especially concerning his feelings toward Susan, his team, Henry, and the kidnapped boy. We got to dig a lot deeper into Archie’s sacrificial hero complex and thoughts about himself as a leader. It’s a side of him that has long been overshadowed by his obsessiveness toward Gretchen and her mind games with him.

Of course, the whole octopus thing still makes me laugh every time I think about it. Seriously? A unique murder weapon, sure, but it’s kind of ridiculous to think about using that thing to actually kill people. I kept trying to picture it. It was a little out there.

And yet, I still found this one more plausible than book three. Take that as you will.

_The Night Season_ is Chelsea Cain's fourth book in the Archie Sheridan / Gretchen Lowell series - although this installment has almost no references to the serial killer. If you are new to the series, its best to begin at the beginning Heartsick rather than jump in here, although there are few enough references to previous story lines to make allowances for new readers. To be honest, I found the break from the twisted Stockholm-syndrome relationship between Sheridan and Lowell refreshing; I enjoyed having Portland detective Sheridan work a fresh case without the added baggage and backstory of the series for a change.

As always, Cain loosely culls stories from Portland into the mystery. Here she connects two true events: the 1948 flooding of the city of Vanport (a rare integrated community in 1948 comprised largely of laborers who worked building "Liberty Ships" during the war), and the more recent 1996 near-flooding of the Willamette into downtown Portland. As the water rises, Sheridan uncovers an overlooked serial killer who hides his bodies as drowning victims. The method of murder and the relationship between floods in 1996 and 1948 was as entertaining as it was clever. I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery.

Fans of the dysfunctional connection between cop and killer will be disappointed; that Cain is "spreading her wings" in terms of varying the story and providing some alternative story lines to sleuth was a real pleasure for me to read. Recommended.

I noticed a lot of reviewers complaining about how little Gretchen has to do with the story in this one, but I actually enjoyed that. I think if she saturates this series too much, it will get very boring and repetitive. I love what Cain did in this one. For me, the draw is always Archie anyway so it didn't matter to me that Gretchen did not figure as prominently in this one. Archie is why I keep reading and it was wonderful for once not to have him suffer and struggle quite as much. I think Cain was smart not to tell the same story all over again in this one (i.e. Archie struggles with his feelings about Gretchen, she either messes with him or escapes or both, he ends up worse for wear). I thought the mystery in this one was really fascinating and gripping and I loved how Cain pulled together so many disparate elements to make a great story. I also liked Susan way more in this one. I was never really that attached to her to begin with but this book really made me fall in love with her. Well done! I'm already on the next book!
