Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman delivers an electrifying novel of suspense as a young man’s investigation into his sister’s death draws him into the path of a sadistic serial killer.

He went searching for the truth. Now a killer has found him.

The more you know, the more there is to fear…

Four years ago, fifteen-year-old Ellen Vicksburg went missing in the quiet town of River Remez, New Mexico. Ellen was kind, studious, and universally liked. Her younger brother, Ben, could imagine nothing worse than never knowing what happened to her—until, on the first anniversary of her death, he found her body in a shallow grave by the river’s edge.

Ben, now sixteen, is committed to finding the monster who abducted and strangled Ellen. Police believe she was the victim of a psychopath known as the Demon. But Ben—a math geek too smart for his high-school classes—continues to pore over the evidence at the local police precinct, gaining an unlikely ally in his school’s popular new girl, Ro Majors. In his sister’s files, Ben’s analytical mind sees patterns that don’t fit, tiny threads that he adds to the clues from other similar unsolved murders. As the body count rises, a picture emerges of an adversary who is as cunning and methodical as he is twisted.

At first the police view Ben’s investigation with suspicion. Soon his obsession will mark him as a threat. But uncovering the truth may not be enough to keep Ben and those he loves safe from a relentless killer who has nothing left to lose.

Killing Season

As an avid reader of the entire Kellerman family, it is difficult to differentiate between the numerous books they have produced. They are all exceptional and excellent.

Faye has "strayed" this time from her usual background of the Decker couple and instead given us a teenager with a brilliant mind, a lone wolf, a partly Native American background who tracks down a serial killer, whose victims include the teen's sister, beautifully set in NM. Wonderful experience!

Killing Season

This book was quite a disappointment and not at all what I would expect from this author given the excellent Decker/Lazarus series. Writing is quite stilted, characters not developed and interactions between the teens in particular are very unrealistic. It seems all the focus was on how beautiful the main character (female) is, and on peppering lots of swearing and crude sexual characterizations. It was a struggle to finish and not worth the time. I will not automatically buy from this author again without checking reviews in advance.
