DESCRIPTION:

Ready or not, here he comes.... It's the same each time. A woman's body is found with a ticking stopwatch clutched in her dead hand.
A distraught father must find his child before the boy suffocates - and the killer takes his left eye.
Alexander Zorbach, a washed-up cop turned journalist, has reported all three of the Eye Collector's murders. But this is different. His wallet has been found next to the corpse, and now he's a suspect. The Eye Collector wants Zorbach to play.
Zorbach has exactly 45 hours, seven minutes to save a little boy's life. And the countdown has started....

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock......Time is running out for Zorbach.  He is on the hunt for the eye collector who has brought him into his sick game of kidnapping and murder.

Zorbach, doesn't know what hit him.  He is all of the sudden the prime suspect in a kidnapping case.  He gets a visit from a blind lady who seems to see the past.  Little does he know that she has also been brought into this bizarre game of hide and seek.

This book starts at the end, and works it's way to the beginning.  It was a very interesting concept.  I have really enjoyed Fitzek's writing.  Fitzek only has a few that have been translated into English, but they have all been very good.    

There is a lot going on in this story, and it kept me on the end of my seat the whole time.  I know I say this all the time, but I was sure who the "murderer" was the whole time.....I am happy to say I was wrong...  I was surprised.  I did not see the end coming the way it did.

If you like creepy, exciting, edge of your seat books, you will enjoy this one.  Fitzek is an awesome author.  His writing is beautiful, and the narrator makes the story really come to life.
