Description
Killing becomes a twisted team sport in this "smart, fast-paced procedural" from the award-winning author of Sleepyhead (Booklist). It was a vicious, calculated murder. The killer selected his victim at London's Euston station, followed her home on the tube, strangled her to death in front of her child. At the same time, killed in the same way, a second body is discovered at the back of King's Cross station. It is a grisly coincidence that eerily echoes the murders of two other women, stabbed to death months before on the same day. DI Tom Thorne sees the link and comes to a horrifying conclusion. This is not a serial killer that the police are up against—this is two of them. Finding the body used to be the worst part of the job, but not any more. Now each time a body is found, Thorne knows that somewhere out there is a second victim waiting to be discovered. But while the killers' methods might be the same, their manner is strikingly different. Thorne comes to realize that he is hunting very different people—one ruthless and in control, the other submissive, compliant, terrified. Thorne must catch a man whose need to manipulate is as great as his need to kill. A man who will threaten those closest to Thorne himself and show him that the ability to inspire terror is the deadliest weapon of all . . . "One of the most consistently entertaining, insightful crime writers working today." —Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl "Mark Billingham is one of my favorite new writers." —Harlan Coben, bestselling author of Run Away
