FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
'Crime novels don't get much better than this' C.L. Taylor
They wanted the same things. Death - and an audience.
Eve Singer makes her living from death. As a TV crime reporter, she'll go to any length to get the latest scoop.
But when a twisted serial killer starts using her to gain the publicity he craves, Eve must decide how far she's willing to go - and how close she'll let him get . . .
'Evocative and disturbing' Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door
'Excellent tension' The Times
'Spectacular' Sunday Times
Readers are gripped by The Beautiful Dead:
'A fast and thrilling story with twists and turns from start to finish.' *****
'Very well-written and extremely tense' *****
'A great thriller from a very talented author' *****
This is one exclusive that Eve Singer, an attractive iWitness News crime reporter, doesn't want, in this taut thriller from British author Bauer (The Shut Eye). While covering the stabbing of a young woman just feet from throngs of London Christmas shoppers, Eve catches the eye of the murderer, who decides she would be the perfect amanuensis to aid his grandiose series of gruesome "exhibitions." Bauer puts the sympathetic, conflicted Eve and the heart-tuggingly demented father for whom she is caring in escalating jeopardy, along with several memorable minor players, including Det. Sgt. Emily Aguda, whose small size leads people to underestimate her formidable skills (she's a black belt in kickboxing and Judo). Though less of the killer, who's pretty much a stock type, would have been more, readers will root for Bauer's spunky heroine on this suspenseful slay ride through a snow-globe London.
