The Killer Inside

The Killer Inside


The gripping and masterfully-crafted new thriller from award-winning author Matthew Frank

'Tense and twisty . . . completely gripping. I ignored children, a ringing phone, hunger, everything just to devour the last hundred pages' KAREN PERRY, Sunday Times bestselling author of YOUR CLOSEST FRIEND

Julian Sinclair is a serial killer.

Charming, manipulative, deadly. He hunted girls for sport, and it's high time justice was served.

But when Sinclair's conviction is thrown out in court, DC Joseph Stark and DS Fran Millhaven are forced to protect the man they're sure is guilty from those who would rather see him pay in blood.

Then another girl dies.

And Sinclair can't have killed her from his hospital bed . . .

Is a killer lurking in someone they never suspected?

And have they had the wrong man all along?
