She's jolted awake at 1a.m. by a despera

Here's where I give my pitch for a mystery author who should be better-known than he is. Todd Ritter writes some of the most interesting mysteries out there. They feature a small-town police chief struggling with the violent crimes that are so unexpected in her town. Ritter's mysteries all have twists in them, unexpected turns at the end, but perfect turns. Devil's Night, the third in the series, is just as intriguing as either of the earlier ones. So, if I tell you to go back and pick up his fi ...more

Well Kat Campbell definitely knows how to turn up the heat, that is, one crazed arsonist did in her beloved town of Perry Hollow. As told in true Todd Ritter fashion, Perry Hollow was haunted on this Halloween night. Amazing what can occur within a 24 hour period!

Historical landmarks burning hotter than the sun, bodies slain in the aftermath, faith and trust shaken, old relationships struggling to remain intact, is there any wonder poor Chief Campbell made it out alive?

If you've been following t

It is both frustrating and exciting to start a book at its climax, only to then be taken back in time to read about the events that led up to that point. That's exactly what happens in Death Night when we see police chief Kat Campbell standing inside a room that has been kitten out with propane tanks which could explode at any time. Fires are breaking out across the small town of Perry Hollow, fires which could devastate the town forever. Kat arrives at Perry Hollow's one and only museum which h ...more

“Devil’s Night” by Todd Ritter

Most times, I’m able to guess ‘who-did-it,’ but not so in this case. Ritter gave me whiplash from trying to guess who the culprit was. Just when I thought I had it all figured out—this is cliché, I know, but so very true—Ritter surprised me and I realized I was wrong. And the end? No way did I even come close to guessing it.

Kat Campbell is Perry Hollow’s Police Chief. The town—and Kat—has already seen its share of pandemonium. And now Kat is hoping things quiet back

A gripping crime / thriller.

But apart from an accidental fire or even arson they find one of the curators and member of the history society, Constance Bishop found in a crawlspace beneath the floor bludgeoned to death and beneath her a chest full of ancient bones.
So now with TWO dead bodies on her hands with a sinister message written on Constance's wrist: "This

What a disappointment!

I loved the first two books in the Kat Campbell series, and I had loaned them to family members to enjoy as well. I was looking forward to enjoying this, the third in the series. Kat, Nick & Henry are back for another adventure, this time investigating arson and murder in the town of Sleepy Hollow. Unlike the first two books, this one was kinda cheesy as the plot unfolded, more "Murder She Wrote" than action-suspense-thriller, and there was too much drama related to rel

This is the 3rd in a series starring Kat Campbell, a single mom and Police Chief of a very small police department in a very small town in Pennsylvania. Even though its a very small town, serial killers seem to be abundant there.

This time around Kat is hunting down an arsonist and murderer who burned down the historic museum...with the president inside. With her body they also find a bag of old, old bones. And so the hunt begins.

In a typical small town, everyone knows everyone else, and the auth

Todd Ritter has written another good one. This one, as usual has many surprises and suspects. I had no idea who the killer was and I loved that.

This was an edge of your seat journey that started out with a bang on the first page. There were even a couple of laughable moments to help release the tension before it started right back up again.

This was my third Todd Ritter book and I have loved them all. I can't believe he's not more popular than he is. Someone needs to market him.

Thanks to the p

Kat Campbell is the police chief is a small Pennsylvania town that is on the decline. Historic buildings are being burned and the body of the curator of the museum is found under the building after a fire along side a box of bones. A mysterious investor has just bought a large chunk of land. As the bodies and destruction piles up, Kat needs to find the motive. This is a good mystery read.

I've absolutely loved this series, and am desperately hoping for a few new books!
I'd definitely recommend these books to anyone who likes a good mystery with characters you can really get attached to. :)

it wasn't the worst book I've read but it lacked a lot. luckily it was fairly short, a quick read. I'm not about to look for more by that author.

Todd Ritter was born in rural Pennsylvania to a bank teller mother and a father who dabbled in taxidermy. He grew up among "Bambi"-esque forests and wide-open fields straight out of the cropduster scene from "North by Northwest." Appropriately, his two biggest influences are Walt Disney and Alfred Hitchcock. He lives in suburban New Jersey.
