No wonder they call this thriller THE BLUE HOUR. This stunning police procedural is punctuated throughout with sad or sobering moments, and Richard McGonagle's mature and poignant voice fits perfectly. A 67-year-old cancer-ridden homicide detective is brought out of retirement and teamed with a thirtyish beauty to apprehend a serial killer who dispatches his female victims in ways too ghastly to disclose. The desperate search for the killer is made more believable by McGongle's dependable, if not understated, narration. As this thriller climaxed, even though the hour was late and the finale somewhat blue, this reviewer kept listening until the final captivating moment.
