On a beautiful Saturday in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota, state investigator Kirk Stevens and FBI special agent Carla Windermere witness the assassination of one of the state’s wealthiest men. The shooter is a young man, utterly unremarkable...except for the dead look in his eyes. The events of that sunny springtime day will lead Stevens and Windermere to a flourishing 21st-century enterprise: a high-tech murder-for-hire social media website. But just who has the dead-eyed shooter targeted next...and who’s choosing his victims?
"Owen Laukkanen's fast-paced, no frills style is brisk, blunt and fuelled entirely by adrenaline." (New York Times)
"Once more, Laukkanen scores one of the thrillers of the year. It will be difficult to top Kill Fee, but one more, I expect he will." (National Post)
"Enthralling...Kill Fee works well as an in-depth police procedural and an insightful look at amorality and greed. Laukkanen employs the same strengths of brisk plotting and incisive character studies that he established in his first two novels." (Huffington Post)
