The Killing Lessons

Suggested from my dear friend AnnaLeise Willisillist

When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper’s isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it’s the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it’s just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done.

For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of victims–women abducted, tortured and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them–has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she’s losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens.

But the murders at the Cooper farmhouse didn’t quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena’s ten-year-old daughter Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more dangerous than what she’s running from.

In this extraordinary, pulse-pounding debut, Saul Black takes us deep into the mind of a psychopath, and into the troubled heart of the woman determined to stop him.

  1. Terrifying and somewhat grotesque. Sometimes I felt a little guilty reading the violent descriptions and vividly described gorey rape scenes, but to be honest I’m all about shock value (Maybe i bore easy)Getting into the mind of a psychopathic killer is fascinating and educational. Delving into the detectives psych was pretty interesting too. Some say u have to become a monster in to try to kill a monster….the detective proves that saying to be somewhat true. ANYWAYS. I don’t want to give the story away. It’s an intense and worthwhile read.
