Voices invade a young woman’s head, compelling her to kill.
When Nancy Kincaid comes into work, an unfamiliar woman tells her to leave. This is Nancy Kincaid’s office, the woman says, but you are not Nancy Kincaid. As Nancy protests, her memory grows fuzzy and her reason seems to slip away. None of her workmates recognize her, and she is distracted by a voice in her head that suggests she shoot them all.
Ejected from her office, she collects herself in the park. A homeless man pesters her, mumbling that at eight o’clock—the animal hour—there is someone she has to kill. Over and over she tells him to leave, until she finds the pistol in her purse. She kills the bum and sets off a whirlwind of insane violence that will not stop until the animal hour comes to pass.

THE ANIMAL HOUR
Wow. I just did not see where this was going and was pleasantly surprised. Great novel. Andrew Klavan is a wonderful author. Have enjoyed everyone of his books. You will not be disappointed.
Really good, some excellent plot twists. Guy can really write, even if he's become a right-wing Christian with persecution complex...
I was just roaming the library waiting for something to pop out at me. I don't know why this book did just that. I didn't find the title terribly appealing, but it was curious enough to make me pick up the book and read the synopsis. I checked it out and brought it home with no expectations. Later that night I started reading and I could not put the damn thing down till I finished it! What a ride this was! This page-turner will keep you guessing to the end, at which point you'll wish there was more!
