A Killer Instinct Novel - The Joona Linna Series
When a seventeen-year-old orphan goes missing, Joona Linna discovers eerie connections to two other seemingly unrelated cases. It's clear that they're looking for a serial killer—one whose deadly rampage has just begun. But as the police close in on their suspect, Joona finds himself in a seemingly impossible race against time to save the lives of the murderer's next young victims.
A bar-raising entry in a series that unfailingly blends streamlined plotting, smart psychological suspense, and explosive conclusions with gritty portrayals of human evil.
The ability of Kepler to ratchet up the tension en route to a stunning reveal and an eminently fair solution is remarkable. This merits comparisons with the best of Thomas Harris.
