Years ago, Katie Sanford's husband was convicted of the murder of Jenny Robbins, then died himself in prison. It's a small town and memories are long, and Katie and Jenny's husband, Chief of Police Jake Robbins, have had to work at putting the tragedy behind them. But it's all brought up again in the wake of a hurricane which has just wreaked havoc on their quiet Maine town. Since its founding, Wilton has had a quaint tradition of creating a time capsule every fifty years, and the storm unearthed the most recent capsule. As the editor of the local paper, Katie joins Chief Robbins to supervise its opening. Neither of them is prepared for the macabre set of predictions, dating back to months before Jenny's murder, that they find inside. Someone predicted her death, as well as eleven other tragedies, which are still occurring even long after the death of Katie's husband.

At last, after all these years, Katie has reason to hope that her husband might not have been guilty of Jenny's murder after all. But as she and Jake race to stop the next predictions from coming true, they find themselves caught in a terrifying mind game with no rules...and life or death consequences.

In Without Warning , David Rosenfelt has written another tightly plotted thriller that will hold readers in its grip from the opening page all the way through to the stunning conclusion.

Good plot + likable good guy = Great read.

I found this to be a much more serious effort by this author. Very different from his Andy Carpenter (with Tara, golden retriever) series. I found the character development to be strong, the story-line intriguing, and the ending very satisfying. Great crime suspense, as I have come to expect by Rosenfelt. This definitely has my recommendation - a great, stand alone novel.

Pretty interesting plot and I really liked the main character and his offbeat humor

This is a solid stand alone from the author of the popular Andy Carpenter series. But that's about all it has in common with those books.
It's a police procedural/thriller with likeable but oddly bland characters & is written in a much more serious tone.
The premise is good & it's a fast paced, easy read but don't pick it up based on any of Rosenfelt's previous books.

I really enjoyed this book. It had me guessing right up to the end. This author focuses on plot - which is very thick - and not full of fill about the locale etc etc I also really enjoy the books with the dog.
