#ThrillerThursday bonus: FOUR STARRED rave pre-publication reviews for THE KILLING LESSONS by Saul Black!
“Exceptional police thriller… Readers will hope [SFPD homicide detective Valerie Hart] returns soon in another nail-biter.” — Publishers Weekly, boxed & starred review
“Black (aka Glen Duncan, I Lucifer) has written a taut, smart thriller guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Not to be missed.” — Library Journal, starred review
“Raw and utterly readable… readers will… whip through the pages.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“All of the serial-killer staples are accounted for: self-destructing detective, slippery killer, and sympathetic future victims. But Black, a pseudonym for acclaimed dark-fantasy author Glen Duncan (The Last Werewolf), twists the formula with a killer who defies the coldly calculating criminal mastermind archetype, an unblinking willingness to off characters he’s convinced readers to like, and a hokum-free thread of reawakening lost souls. A serial-murder tale in league with the best of Lauren Beukes and Chelsea Cain: that means must-read for those who like their psychological thrillers raw.” — Booklist, starred review
