Read Killing Season (Killing Season #1-3) Online Free - New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman delivers an electrifying novel of suspense as a young man’s investigation into his sister’s death draws him into the path of a sadistic serial killer.
He went searching for the truth. Now a killer has found him.
The more you know, the more there is to fear…
Four years ago, fifteen-year-old Ellen Vicksburg went missing in the quiet town of River Remez, New Mexico. Ellen was kind, studious, and universally liked. Her younger brother, Ben, could imagine nothing worse than never knowing what happened to her—until, on the first anniversary of her death, he found her body in a shallow grave by the river’s edge.
Ben, now sixteen, is committed to finding the monster who abducted and strangled Ellen. Police believe she was the victim of a psychopath known as the Demon. But Ben—a math geek too smart for his high-school classes—continues to pore over the evidence at the local police precinct, gaining an unlikely ally in his school’s popular new girl, Ro Majors. In his sister’s files, Ben’s analytical mind sees patterns that don’t fit, tiny threads that he adds to the clues from other similar unsolved murders. As the body count rises, a picture emerges of an adversary who is as cunning and methodical as he is twisted.
At first the police view Ben’s investigation with suspicion. Soon his obsession will mark him as a threat. But uncovering the truth may not be enough to keep Ben and those he loves safe from a relentless killer who has nothing left to lose.

Truthfully, I am surprised at all of the negative reviews for this book. It is not as good as her long-standing series featuring Rina Lazarus & Peter Decker. Instead, this book is about teenagers and, in particular, Ben Vicksburg, whose 16-year old sister was raped, murdered, and buried when...

Ugh! Awful! The teen dialog was almost unreadable and very unrealistic! Did they publish the unedited 1st draft by mistake?

Years ago, as an early fan of Jonathon Kellerman, I decided to give his wife, Faye, a try. I reasoned that a good author would be attracted to another good author. In the case of Ms. Kellerman, this was not the case. I abandoned the book — whatever it was — early. But yesterday in t...

Too much like a young adult novel for my taste...

I used to love both Kellermans writing, Faye the best. However this book was terrible. The main character was unbelievable. I have teenagers, one of which has worked with police through the school system. I know how it works, even with obsessions.
This must have been a first draft mistakenly sent...

Disclaimer: I am a huge fan of most of Faye Kellerman's work, so I'm surprised at this unfortunate review, but you seem to want an honest opinion, so. I sent this opinion to the publisher in hopes that significant changes occur before actual publication.
This book is a slog -- I read it in digita...

The Killing Season. May I give it more stars?
I have enjoyed Faye Kellerman's novels since her very first. As all series do - they became formulaic and I think she may have thought this too. She left behind her Decker books and went to a place she knows well. New Mexico. And in this setting betwe...

I really enjoy Faye Kellerman's books but not this one. Way too long. I thought she repeated over and over again. I found it quite tiresome. Just didn't work for me.

I found this book in the mystery section of the library with thriller written across the front. Since I like Faye Kellerman's Decker/Lazarus series, I thought I'd found a winner in this standalone book. I had no idea this was actually full of teenage dialogue. If I'd known then what I know now, I...

Where was the editor? This nearly 700 page book about teenage angst, filled with overused metaphors, and sexual interludes unrelated to the limited plot, was by far the worst book by this author. If I could award it a negative rating I would. Avoid at all costs.
