Publisher Description

Se7en meets The Silence of the Lambs in this dark and twisting novel from the author Jeffery Deaver called “a talented writer with a delightfully devious mind.”
Two days to save her . . .
For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one which proves he has taken another victim who may still be alive.
One day . . .
As the lead investigator on the 4MK task force, Detective Sam Porter knows that even in death, the killer is far from finished. When he discovers a personal diary in the jacket pocket of the body, Porter finds himself caught up in the mind of a psychopath, unraveling a twisted history in hopes of finding one last girl, all while struggling with personal demons of his own.
With only a handful of clues, the elusive killer’s identity remains a mystery. Time is running out as the Four Monkey Killer taunts from beyond the grave in this masterfully written fast-paced thriller.
“Creepy, scary . . . and impossible to put down! The Fourth Monkey is everything a thriller should be—a must-read!”—Heather Graham, New York Times best-selling author of Law and Disorder

Best book I’ve ever read!

This book is a nonstop thriller. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire way through. I didn't want to stop reading it and didn't want it to end.

Awesome Awesome Read

The Thriller/Suspense Genre is full of novels that claim to “wow” you to the very end. Supporters of many novels assert that it will keep you engaged and deliver this mind blowing ending unlike any other. Needless to say, few deliver on this promise in my humble opinion.

“The Fourth Monkey” delivers a powerful, intriguing, and clever flow of story telling that truly compelled me to read this work of art in almost one sitting. I don’t want to give too much away but think Hannibal Lecter/ The Joker from the Dark Knight Series/Kevin Spacey’s character from Seven and all the possibilities. However colorful your mind, this only gives a brief glance at a wondrous read.

Take a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and kickback with minimal interruptions and treat yourself to the early stages of what will prove to be an epic series.

I’m so looking forward to “The Fifth to Die”!!!
