The second installment of Baldacci's Atlee Pine series. I did read the first one in this series and have read quite a few books by this author.

There are actually two arcs in this story. The longer arc being Atlee Pine's search for what happened to her twin sister, Mercy. (This longer arc, predictably, does not get solved within the confines of this novel, though additional clues are uncovered.) The story arc involves Pine's return to the town from which Mercy was taken which coincides with a strange killing spree.

Though Pine is officially on leave from the FBI, she ends up as one of the team investigating the murders.

It's nice to learn some of Pine's history. I like the friendship that's developed between Pine and her assistant, Carol Blum. I like that both women respect the strengths of each other and that they recognize that their strengths complement each other. I'm glad to see Pine developing some friendships.

I did not guess who the murderer(s) was/were before it was revealed.

I also did not guess what part Jack Lineberry would play--I hope that future novels in the series delve more into the history of how he knew Pine's parents and what happened in the past.

I wonder if Blum's interest in Cy Tanner will continue in future novels or if it was just for this one. I was glad Cy wasn't involved in the murders. ( )

Looking forward to reading the next Pine story. Was disappointed that Sam didn’t make an appearance in this one.
Interesting that a case just happened to occur right where Atlee happened to be “vacationing” which really means trying to find more information about her sister. Enjoyable though if you like detective investigations. ( )

FBI Agent Atlee Pine's life was never the same after her twin sister, Mercy, was kidnapped - and likely killed - 30 years ago. After a lifetime of torturous uncertainty, Atlee's unresolved anger finally gets the better of her on the job, and she finds she has to deal with the demons of her past if she wants to remain with the FBI.

Atlee and her assistant, Carol Blum, head back to Atlee's rural hometown in Georgia to see what they can uncover about the traumatic night Mercy was taken and Pine was almost killed. But soon after Atlee begins her investigation, a local woman is found ritualistically murdered, her face covered with a wedding veil - and the first killing is quickly followed by a second bizarre murder.

Atlee is determined to continue her search for answers, but now she must also set her sights on finding a potential serial killer before another victim is claimed. But in a small town full of secrets - some of which could answer the questions that have plagued Atlee her entire life - digging deeper into the past could be more dangerous than she realizes.... ( )

FBI Agent Atlee Pine returns to Andersonville, Georgia in search of answers about the kidnapping of her twin sister, Mercy, some thirty years earlier. But a serial killer interrupts her investigation, causing Atlee to divide her time between her own private investigation and the hunt for the serial killer.

Accompanied by her assistant, Carol Blum, Atlee digs into the past where the secrets are plentiful and danger lurks around every corner. Will Atlee find the answers she seeks; will she finally know what happened to Mercy?

Continuing the story begun in “Long Road to Mercy,” Atlee’s backstory slowly emerges while she splits her time between her personal search and the hunt for the serial killer. Strong characters, well-defined and believable, keep the story moving while surprising reveals change everything that the readers think they know.

The connection between the twin sisters is one of the strong points of the story; Atlee’s fierce drive to find the answers, to have closure about what happened to her twin sister is both realistic and heartrending. The captivating plot, complex and intriguing, keeps the pages turning to a conclusion readers simply will not see coming.

“A Minute to Midnight” works as a stand-alone since there is sufficient backstory for readers new to the series [but reading “Long Road to Mercy” is highly recommended]. And, although there is a satisfactory conclusion for the main plot, there are still questions regarding Mercy and readers are sure to be looking forward to Atlee’s next adventure as her search for Mercy continues.

Highly recommended. ( )

This plot has our heroine, Atlee Pine, returning to her childhood home on vacation where she intends to solve the mystery of her childhood. Meanwhile, the local county mountie needs help solving a murder-- so she pitches in. The result is a solved crime. The dual tracked story really held my interest! Admittedly, I read this book ( #2) before book #1, but I feel cheated that the family mystery was not solved and as one reviewer put it: "I felt a tiny "oops" at the end." ( )
