When a brutal and senseless murder takes place in a small California coastal town, the FBI sends two of its agents to help local authorities investigate what they think is a serial killer. FBI Agent John Salton, though, is wrestling demons that threaten to derail the investigation. He’s convinced that his wife’s death wasn’t a freak accident, but a proxy killing, using his autistic son as the murder weapon. When his son is transferred to a treatment facility not far from the scene of the current crime, things begin to heat up.
Thy Killer’s Keeper by Edita Petrick is a blood-curdling thriller that explores a world of mind-control with a freakish twist not often found in this genre. As Salton and his partner close in on the killer, the reader is taken on a roller coaster ride of emotion, and is treated to a surprise ending that makes this a nice read for people who like their stories to really scare.
