#1 New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind reinvents the thriller with a provocative, page-turning walk among evil.
Kate Bishop thought she was an ordinary woman living and working in Chicago. But when she unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of a police investigation into a brutal murder, Kate makes a shocking discovery: she has the ability to identify killers just by looking into their eyes.
Trying to grasp the implications of this revelation, Kate is drawn deep into a world of terror. She is tracked down by Jack Raines, a mysterious author with shadowy connections to those who share her ability. He tells Kate that her unique vision also makes her a target, and only he can help her.
Now, hot on Jack and Kate’s heels are a force of super-predators, vicious and bloodthirsty killers who will stop at nothing until Kate is dead. But even as she fights for her life, Kate still isn’t sure if Jack is really her salvation, or another killer coming to slaughter her.
An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a landmark new novel from worldwide bestselling author Terry Goodkind, and a complete reinvention of the contemporary thriller. Travel with Goodkind on 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.
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.
