#1 New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind reinvents the paranormal thriller with a provocative, page-turning confrontation with true evil.
In the wake of her brother's brutal murder, Kate Bishop has a lot of questions. Why was her brother keeping a man chained in his cellar? What was his relationship with the detective now leading the investigation into his death? Could his murder be connected to the death of their reclusive uncle two weeks earlier?
One man, the enigmatic author of a book called A Brief History of Evil contacts Kate saying he has the answers to her questions – answers that will expose her to the nature of true evil. Kate, he says, has a hidden talent, a talent that has marked her for death at the hands of humanity's super-predators...
An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a dangerous journey to the back alleys of the darknet, to the darkest corners of our minds, and to the very origins of what it is to be human – a place few have ventured and fewer still have survived.
What people are saying about NEST:
'Nest is a chilling ride. It was so vivid in description it was hair-raising'
'Spine-chilling, gritty, and hands down one of the best thrillers I've read this year'
'I highly recommend this edge-of-your-seat thriller, I was hooked from the very beginning'
'If you aren't a heroic fantasy fan, you will be after this. An absolute must'
Bestseller Goodkind (the Sword of Truth series) doesn't stint on either gore or implausibilities in this over-the-top paranormal thriller. John Bishop, an employee of the Clarkson Center for Developmental Disability, has captured a man whom he considers the devil and kept him in the basement of John's Chicago home for weeks. John considers informing Detective Janek, for whom he's been doing some consulting, about this dangerous situation, but he fails to act before the devil kills him and escapes. That the fiend removes both of John's eyes, partially eating one, is just the first of many shocks. Janek reveals to John's devastated sister, Kate, that her brother had the ability to look at photographs (but only ones "shot on film and developed directly from the negative onto photo paper") and identify which ones depict killers. Janek was using John to help her solve crimes, and when she determines that Kate shares her brother's gift, she enlists Kate to carry on the family tradition. Kate partners with author Jack Raines, an expert on evil who believes that the central theme of all books, movies, and TV is murder. The payoff will sorely test readers' ability to suspend disbelief.

Brilliant! Not what I was expecting as it is completely different to the Sword Of Truth series but once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Very well written, as you would expect from Terry Goodkind and, I imagine, well researched too. Although thrillers are not my favourite or usual genre of books, I find myself hoping & praying that this is the start of another series and that there are more novels to come.
