Rosenfelt’s stand-alone thriller is just as good as his series fiction. He excels at creating fascinating plots and telling his stories with crisp writing that’s a pleasure to read. The plot of his new book has a relentless sense of urgency that captures readers’ attention early on and never lets go.

When hurricane flooding damages part of Wilton, Maine, there’s concern that the small town’s time capsule that was buried five years ago may have been damaged. Authorities decide to dig it up to check its condition, but it’s a shock when skeletal remains of an unknown murder victim are found buried right above the capsule. Wondering if there are clues inside, Police Chief Jake Robbins opens the capsule and finds a series of predictions that correlate with devastating events that took place in the town after the capsule was buried. Several predictions have not yet come to pass, but history suggests that they will. Robbins races against time to interpret the cryptic predictions to avert the unfolding of further tragedies.
