TWISTED is the second Petra Connor novel and a superb example of international bestseller Jonathan Kellerman's mastery of the psychological thriller as demonstrated in his renowned Alex Delaware series, which includes KILLER and BREAKDOWN. Jonathan's tense and nail-biting writing will appeal to all fans of Karin Slaughter and Harlan Coben. 'An elaborate, tangled web . . . with unsuspected turns at every chapter break . . . this addictive tale . . . is as intricately detailed as it is tantalizingly page-turning' (Entertainment Weekly). Detective Petra Connor is struggling with a baffling drive-past murder when Isaac Gomez, a young research prodigy, tells her he's found something she might want to see. His theory that there's a connection between six unsolved murders committed in the LAPD area over the past six years, all at around midnight on June 28, seems fanciful at first - but soon the links become clearer. Something evil has managed to conceal itself between the dry pages of the files: a series of killings so meticulously constructed that the mind behind them would have remained invisible without Isaac's sharp probing. And June 28 is just a month away - will Petra be able to stop the murderer from striking again?
