內容簡介


兩個連續殺人犯,一個因凶殺案而處於精神崩潰邊緣的探員,加上命案中唯一的10歲倖存者,將交織出什麼樣的驚悚故事?

「出乎意料的佳作。不沉浸在小說所創造出來的推進力當中是不可能的。透過轉換的敘事觀點,從極複雜的殺手,到一心一意想要抓到殺手的獵者,以及只有在被殘酷拋棄時才會跳出來的配角們,作者讓我們更深入地窺視了書中許多充分描繪的人物。」
--《紐約時報》書評

Rowena Cooper與她的兩個孩子,在遺世獨立的科羅拉多農場上,正準備等著漫天的暴風雪結束。兩個殘暴的獵殺者跨進了他們的家門。對這些人來說,在任務結束之前,這只是他們長途血腥之旅的其中一站,他們還有好些路要趕,好多人要殺。Cooper一家人的生活,將永遠地改變。

同一個時間,舊金山凶殺組探員Valerie Hart,不停地想著遭到綁架、折磨的死亡婦女們,連續殺人犯在她們身上都隨機留下了物品。這個案件將她推向了心理崩潰的邊緣,對於破案她已不存有任何希望。

但是,發生在Cooper農場的兇殺案並非完全照著計劃進行,這起凶殺案竟然有一個倖存者,她是Rowena 10歲的女兒Nell,她是唯一破案的關鍵。負傷且嚇壞的Nell只有一個地方可去,然而可去的地方有可能比她所逃離的處所還要危險…。

“Saul Black squeezes every last ounce of suspense out of this story…The Killing Lessons is state-of-the-art in the ever-darkening serial-killer genre.” ―The Washington Post

In their isolated Colorado farmhouse, Rowena Cooper and her two children prepare to wait out a blinding snowstorm. Two violent predators walk through the door. For these men, it’s just another stop on a long and bloody journey―and they still have many miles to go, and lives to sacrifice, before their work is done. But for the Cooper family, nothing will ever be the same. . .

“a nail-biter.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Meanwhile, San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart can’t stop thinking about the victims―women abducted, tortured, and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them. The case has brought her to the edge psychological destruction. And she’s losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens.

“Compelling, addictive…A master class in suspense.” ―Bookpage

But the murders at the Cooper farmhouse didn’t quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena’s ten-year-old daughter, Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more dangerous than what she’s running from. . .
