Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed. Found it mostly irritating. 2 mai 2014
Par Kathleen McClain - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Police Chief Jake Robbins realizes there is a serial killer loose in his small Maine community when a time capsule is opened after five years instead of fifty and predictions of the unsolved or mistakenly solved deaths of local residents are found inside. One such crime is the murder of his own wife, supposedly by the husband of an old girlfriend, Katie, who is now the publisher of the local newspaper. Before long the Chief realizes that the murderer is targeting people who have a relationship with Jake himself and so he must solve the crimes quickly before the remaining predictions become reality. In the process of tracking down the killers, he and Katie relight old flames and then he becomes the chief suspect for the murders. When Katie’s life is put in danger, it ups the ante for Jake and he must take a lot of risks to bring down the villain before even worse things happen.

Although I love good thrillers, I can’t say I was a fan of this one.

First of all the characters are not just one-dimensional they are emotionally weird. Although protagonists such as Jack Reacher and Stone Barrington act woodenly, the emotional reactions of Jake and Katie are schizoid---they have little emotional reaction to things when their reactions should be strong and their reactions are strong when they should be weak. Jake reminded me of a teenager the way his emotions were all over the map. In general, the emotions just didn’t ring true. Give me Will Robie any day.

Take one example. Jake is so upset by Katie’s life being at risk that he sets a timetable for the final denouement that depends on the cavalry coming to the rescue at an exact time even though he hasn’t even consulted the cavalry about their availability. Now, Katie has been in the same dangerous situation for several days, so why risk everything going wrong by setting things up to happen in ninety minutes instead of two hours? The Chief often gets really irritated over things that shouldn't set him off that much, like the author is trying to show us by this that Jake is upset. His rants, however, take longer than whatever delay he is complaining about.

There were a lot of little things that drove me crazy about the characters and the plot. Some are very minor. Like the fact that, although I’m not sure of their ages, it seemed as though the couple were in the late part of their childbearing years. Yet neither had children nor mentioned why not when a lot of less important information than that is presented. And I got tired of Jake bitching and moaning about his being heralded a war hero. Seemed sort of petty to me.

One of the big things that bothered me is the fact that a lot of people, including the FBI, start believing Jake is the killer without ever checking to see whether he has an alibi for any/all of the killings. Clearly he does for at least some of the important ones but does anyone even ask him about them? Nooo.

Another example of the kind of thing that bothered me related to the reporter’s informant. He had used the woman in the past to obtain information about non-serious police issues. But the source continues to help the reporter during the investigation even though she has a crisis of conscience about doing so since it could jeopardize the investigation. So, why does she continue to help him? No good reason is ever given.

By half way through I guessed who the villain was although I didn’t guess some of the other facts about his actions, including his reason for doing what he did. And there was a pretty good red herring along the way.

Although I don’t expect great literature, a perfect plot, or really deep characters in my thrillers, I really found this one unsatisfying on almost every level other than decent writing mechanics and a certain amount of tension.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Riveting Thriller Suspense Must Read 3 avril 2014
Par Pat Pascale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I order every book by David Rosenfelt. I enjoy both his Andy Carpenrter series, (love Tara ), as well as the stand alones. I picked up WITHOUT WARNING and read it cover to cover. I love his humor and I particularly enjoyed the Maine
locale.. Jake, the Chief of Police in Wilton, a small Maine town, is also a decorated war hero. One of the town's traditions is to bury a time capsule, not to be unearthed for 50 years. A hurricane had wrecked havoc on Wilton and the time capsule was unearthed with a dead body laying on top of it. So the mystery begins, in a tightly woven, exciting plot that leads us to an exciting finish. I really enjoy his imagination, his characters, he makes me laugh out loud....he is David Rosenfelt, one of my favorite authors with another winner!

Not my favorite sad to say as I love Andy Carpenter and Tara. The writing is not as crisp, and the story seems jumpy. I guess I miss the sarcasm that is found in his other books. All and all a pretty good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rosenfelt Delivers Another Excellent Standalone Thriller! 12 mai 2014
Par Michael A. Newman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 good mystery set in maine 10 avril 2014
Par carol irvin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The time capsule buried in this town is dug up as a result of the dam which burst. Inside the capsule is a whole new container of papers which turns out to be clues as to people murdered in the town or about to be murdered. This really impacts on the town sheriff, Jake, and newspaper editor, Katie, because three years ago her husband was convicted of murdering his wife. But the person who planted the new papers in the capsule clearly was the murderer instead. With that we are off and running as the murderer now gears up to finish off killing all the people in his enigmatic box from the capsule. This was a pretty good mystery. I enjoyed it. But I read an awful lot of mysteries and this did not knock me out.
