Christine Helstrum — escaped mental asylum patient and murderer plots her way to finish the unfinished. She believes her son is still alive and living with Alex. A thrilling stalker-tale where the psychotic killer plays cat and mouse.
I enjoyed reading Night of Reunion by Michael Allegretto. Allegretto masterfully builds suspense and gives readers a few big chilling events before the finale. The ending was one I didn’t entirely see coming. I loved the fact that this book had unpredictable moments and was not a typical stalker-tale.
Sometimes, the story moved too slowly for my taste and there were some moments within the book where I found myself getting frustrated with the main characters. Of course, that is all part of being a reader as we are privy to information that the main characters are not. Still — some of those moments seemed like obvious “aha” moments that might have helped move the plot along a bit faster.
All in all, Night of Reunion did what I hoped it would — and that is that it provided a solid suspenseful plot and psychotic villain!
