Bill Fairing is a man accustomed to heartbreak and loss. He is a man accustomed to the dark depravity of the world. He is a man accustomed to danger and violence.
Bill Fairing has left all of that behind. Now, all he wants is to live a simple life. He just wants to watch his best friend's daughter, Amy, grow up. He might not get the chance.
Lilly Montgomery, a Chicago Police Detective working the Missing Persons Section of the Special Victims Unit, crosses paths with Bill Fairing when a teenage girl goes missing. And then another. As the missing girls were close friends of Amy, the crisis hits close to home for Bill.
When an unknown gunman fires shots at Bill and Lilly, they're swept up in a series of events that could lead to ruin. Ruin of their personal lives, ruin of their professional lives, but even worse, ruin of the lives of those closest to them.
A Killer Past is a novel about characters who have tried to hide from their pasts, only to find that ultimately, their secrets will out them. Harsh realities collide head-on with the lives composed on secrets, lies, and violence.
Happily ever after is only for fairy tales.

and a good read. The description of the crimes is to explicit and the author chose some pretty strong swears. The characters are interesting and well developed.
As a thriller/mystery story I was very disappointed in this book. There was very little depth of character for me to even care what happened to anyone especially the victims. A shallow read.
Fasr pace and full of suspence Fast paced hard to put down Like James Pattersons books
I loved the fun interplay between the main characters and the realistic but sad ending in persuit of the deadly killers. Ron C
