    If you are a fan of P,J. Parrish, you will enjoy this thriller!

    The sisters have done it again! I have read all of their Louis Kincaid series and their new hero Matt Owens is just as determined and admirable in his pursuit of a very ruthless, but highly intelligent serial killer. Hopefully, they will continue a series with Matt Owens.

    more from this reviewer

    A combo investigative thriller and police procedural

    Thirtyish Pulitzer Prize nominee Miami Herald investigative reporter Matt Owens feels disconnected from everyone because he rebuffed anyone who tried to get close to him. The only person he feels a tie to is his younger sister Mandy who is visiting him. On her last night in town, he takes her to a club, tragedy strikes when she disappears from the dance floor and her body found shortly afterward.

    After Mandy's funeral, Matt listens to his sister's BlackBerry when he realizes one of the downloads is by the killer. The song is a clue to a previous homicide of an American woman in Paris. Matt goes to France but gains no information. When another American is murdered, Inspector Eve Bellamont joins forces with Matt as she has hunted this serial killer since she worked the first known case five years ago. Clues take them to London and Scotland where they learn of more murders. They travel back to Paris where they remain determined to end the killing spree even if that alienates local authorities.

    A combo investigative thriller and police procedural, The Killing Song focuses on a creepy serial killer who will fascinate readers in a macabre way. Eve and Matt play off each other's strengths including turning their weaknesses into strengths as both share the obsession, which enables them to become friends rather quickly; though one must wonder what will happen to their friendship if the link is removed. Filled with action and a strong cast, fans of P.J. Parrish's Louis Kincaid mysteries will relish the new guy on the block.

    Top notch mystery/suspense!

    The author of The Killing Song, P.J. Parrish is actually two sisters, Kelly Nichols and Kris Montee. How I have not been aware of this writing team, I do not know, but I want to read more. This book was intense. I could feel the evilness of the serial killer seeping off the pages. He was twisted, disturbed, kinky, and very cunning - everything I love to hate in a villain. Matt Owens is the ideal broken hero. From Putlitzer Prize nominated to just shy of an alcoholic, he has to pull himself together to find his sister's killer. He's not perfect, but he's determined, and I found it easy to care about him and root for him to succeed.

    The story moves quickly from clue to clue with snippets of the killer's evil-doings in between. It's not a fast read, but it's a gripping, emotional one. When you start reading it, be prepared, and hang on for the ride. It's worth it!

    *Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher for free, I was not required to write a positive review.
