Description

A heart-stopping thriller from the award-winning crime fiction author whose "novels are almost indecently gripping and enjoyable" (Sophie Hannah, New York Times–bestselling author). Belinda Bauer is a British crime writer of the highest caliber, whose smart, stylish novels have captivated readers and reviewers on both sides of the Atlantic and earned her a reputation as "the true heir to the great Ruth Rendell" (The Mail on Sunday). The Beautiful Dead is a riveting narrative centered on a down-on-her-luck journalist and a serial killer desperate for the spotlight. TV crime reporter Eve Singer's career is flagging, but that starts to change when she covers a spate of bizarre murders—each one committed in public and advertised like an art exhibition. When the killer contacts Eve about her coverage of his crimes, she is suddenly on the inside of the biggest murder investigation of the decade. But as the killer becomes increasingly obsessed with her, Eve realizes there's a thin line between inside information and becoming an accomplice to murder—possibly her own. "Bauer's novel unfolds like an episode of Criminal Minds, with rapid-fire plotting." —Entertainment Weekly
