When a Serial Killer Gets a Taste for Blood. . .

Years ago, the Seattle police were baffled by the Schoolgirl Murders. The killer staged the scenes, dressing his female victims in school girl uniforms and saddle shoes. No woman in Seattle felt safe, until they caught the man responsible, and the case was forgotten. . .

He Only Wants to Do One Thing. . .

Across the country, a killing spree is taking place. The first victim is attacked in a taxi by a mysterious stranger. The next is found strangled in a changing room. A hitchhiker is left by the side of the road, his identity brutally stolen. The murders are so bizarre, so random, no one would think to connect them. . .

Kill and Kill Again. . .

Only Seattle writer Gillian McBride sees the disturbing coincidences between all the murders—and it's hitting too close to home. Somehow, she is the link between past and present—and to a twisted serial killer who shows no signs of stopping. With each terrible piece of a sinister puzzle, a psychopath is carrying out a master plan—a killing spree that needs a final trophy to be fully complete. . .

About the Author:

Before his thrillers landed him on the New York Times bestseller list, Kevin O’Brien was a railroad inspector who wrote novels at night. He moved from the train tracks to writing full-time in 1997, when his novel, ONLY SON, was picked up by Readers Digest and optioned for film, thanks to interest from Tom Hanks.  Since then, five of his novels have been USA Today and New York Times bestsellers and his books have been published in into fourteen languages. O’Brien’s 17th novel, YOU’LL MISS ME WHEN I’M GONE, will be released by Kensington Publishing in August 2016.  Born and raised in Chicago, he now lives in Seattle, where he is on the board of Seattle 7 Writers (www.seattle7writers.org), a collective of bestselling, award-winning authors that includes Garth Stein, Maria Semple, Jess Walters, Tim Robbins, Erik Larson, Terry Brooks, Erica Bauermeister, Susan Wiggs, Jennie Shortridge and Elizabeth George.   Please visit Kevin online at KevinOBrienBooks.com.

From Publishers Weekly:

Bestselling author O'Brien's latest is a fast-paced thriller that unfortunately suffers from a slight case of predictability. O'Brien's heroine, Gillian McBride, is herself a midlist Seattle writer of serial killer books. Her personal life has been thrown into turmoil since the disappearance of her husband, Barry, two years ago, which triggered a series of intimidating visits from some unsavory business associates. Those threats, however, pale in comparison with the violence wreaked by a cross-country murderer patterning his savage crimes on the fictional ones in McBride's books. As the murders pile up, getting increasingly grisly and personal, Gillian is forced to play sleuth and soon finds herself suspecting everyone—in particular, the members of a writing class she taught at a local college before her husband disappeared. Plot twists will be anticipated by most readers familiar with the genre, but O'Brien's crisp, clear writing and taut suspense elevate this above similar fare. (Jan.)
