Rosenfelt Delivers Another Excellent Standalone Thriller!

This is one of Rosenfelt's best standalone books (standalone from his Andy Carpenter series). Jake Robbins is a decorated war hero and the sheriff of a small Maine town. A sudden storm causes a flood that may have damaged a time capsule buried a few years before. The town decides to dig it up to check for damage. They find a skeletonized body buried with it along with a bunch of predictions. As Jake starts reviewing the predictions he finds that they are tied to recent deaths. This makes Jake take notice and he must do all he can to solve the other predictions before more deaths occurs.

With each passing victim, the one thing they all seem to have in common is that they are somehow tied to Jake. Jake realizes this early on and knows that he is the only one who can guess who the next victims may be.

The mystery is intense as the reader has a hard time wondering how someone could have hidden predictions in a time capsule that wouldn't be opened for 50 years. Also, each prediction is an interesting play on words so it is fun guessing along with Jake as to who is the next possible victim.

This book had me right from the start and I didn't want to put it down. The author has an amazing way of drawing the reader into the mystery and making the reader hungry to solve the puzzle immediately. Jake is another interesting character, having survived a dangerous situation in Afghanistan and then had to deal with his wife getting murdered by possibly a close friend. I hope Rosenfelt decides to bring back Jack in a future novel.
