Five Minutes Alone

(2014)
A novel by

 
""Breaking Bad" reworked by the Coen Brothers." (Kirkus Reviews," starred review) In the latest thriller by the Edgar-nominated author of "Joe Victim," someone is helping rape victims exact revenge on their attackers, prompting an edge-of-your-seat, cat-and-mouse chase between old friends, detectives Theodore Tate and Carl Schroder. Carl Schroder and Theodore Tate, labeled "The Coma Cops" by the media, are finally getting their lives back into shape. Tate has returned to the police force and is grateful to be back at home with his wife, Bridget. For Schroder, things are neither good nor bad. The bullet lodged in his head from a shooting six months ago hasn't killed him, but--almost as deadly--it's switched off his emotions. When the body of a convicted rapist is found, obliterated by an oncoming train, Tate works the case, trying to determine if this is murder or suicide. The following night, two more rapists go missing. It's hard to investigate when everyone on the police force seems to be rooting for the killer. There's a common plea detectives get from the loved ones of victims: When you find the man who did this, give me five minutes alone with him. And that's exactly what someone is doing. Someone is helping these victims get their five minutes alone. But when innocent people start to die, Tate and Schroder find themselves with different objectives, and soon they're battling something they never would've expected--each other. "Ferocious storytelling that makes you think and feel," says "The Listener "(New Zealand). Smart, funny, and breathlessly suspenseful, "Five Minutes Alone" takes the definition of "crime thriller" to a whole new level.
