A murderer is stalking the streets of St Louis, and the only thing linking his victims is a system of special nightlines used by the phone company to test equipment. Lonely people use them to make contact with one anotherbut these people are dying.
Praise for John Lutz
"One of the best and most unusual novels in the history of private eye fiction."Cedar-Rapids Gazette.
Lutz's bestselling novel SWF Seeks Same was released as the major motion picture, Single White Female starring Bridget Fonda.
"Edgar-winner Lutz (Nightlines, Ride the Lightning) will probably not win new readers here. Readers may object to the slow pace, to Dancer's tiresome little-boy-lost routine and to a pat, if tangled, resolution. Nudger's preoccupation with buying a used car is stressed as much as his concern for Claudia, and, except for the Mississippi River as a dumping place for corpses, we don't get much St. Louis color."Publishers Weekly
