36 Hours by B. J. Woster is a thrilling crime book fro the reader who dosn’t want to deal with all the leagl stuff. Yes, readers follow the police search but the author has omitted wrigting a lenghty book about a trial.

Christian Price is a serial killer, thought hat is not his real name and no one ahs relised the deaths are all connected. Yet. Christian is not killing because he likes to kill, no, he dose this because he feels he has to. In his opinion many local police forces are incompatatnt

Everyone would assume those in line to protect citizens of their state would do all they can to fight and solve crimes. What if there are more shortcomings than successful stories and more grievances than happy endings? It set off an idea of one individual who lost a loved one to seek not only justice for their loss but redemption for the very people who didn’t do their due diligence.

In “36 Hours,” author B. J. Woster sets the scene of Brooke Madison’s abduction by a man she knew as her self-def

36 Hours is a fast-pace, thrilling, mystery novel. The story starts quickly and never lifts its foot from the pedal.

The plot is pretty well described and summarized in the Amazon description—a scientist who suffered an unsolved tragedy begins testing response times in different cities. The perverse experiment runs headlong into the extremely successful veteran detective Hardwick of the Atlanta Police Department. If you can set aside the current climate in the United States regarding policing, th
I want to thank NetGalley, B.J. Woster and Austin Macauley for the review copy. This review is not influenced by this in any way, these are my true feelings on the book.

A serial killer is kidnapping women in Atlanta and gives the police department 36 hours of finding the women before he kills them. You follow the serial killer and the detective, which gives a really Cat and mouse game.

I thought the plot was really interesting and well-executed. There was a lot of intrigue to the story.

Christian Price is a man with a vendetta. He has lost his wife to police negligence and he has set out to improve the efficiency of the police force all over America. So he moves from state to state kidnapping and killing women, giving the police enough hints (or so he thinks) to track down his victims and save them, usually within 36 hours.
After successful (or unsuccessful, according to him) stints in several other states, he moves to Atlanta and kidnaps random women and follows his MO as elsew

A serial killer is putting police departments to the test to see if they can save the female victim before she dies. The story focuses on Atlanta police department and their ability to locate and save the chosen victims.

Christian Price is conducting experiments using women he captures and then leaves for the police to find using only the clues he gives them. They have 36 hours to find the victim before she dies!

I enjoyed the cat and mouse chase and thought the perpetrator was intriguing and unu
36 Hours by B.J. Woster is a short average criminal based book. Serial killer (claiming to be a scientist) is running loose in Atlanta and the police have 36 Hours to find his victim. Overall, a decent read. Not a whole lot of thinking is needed to figure anything out and the characters have just enough umpf to get you through.

Thank you to Netgallery for the free digital copy in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. All opinions are my own.

A solid thriller

I found this an engaging read. Well-paced and tense in the right places. The characters are mostly interesting-especially the villain. Dips into stereotype every now and again. Overall, a satisfying read.
A quick read that I definitely got into. It wasn't hard with an interesting and unique story, I was truly surprised and left wanting more at the end.

Thank you Netgalley
