Publisher's Summary

The first thing you should know about me is that my name is not Carter Blake. That name no more belongs to me than the hotel room I was occupying when the call came in.
When Caleb Wardell, the infamous "Chicago Sniper", escapes from death row two weeks before his execution, the FBI calls on the services of Carter Blake, a man with certain specialized talents whose skills lie in finding those who don't want to be found - a man to whom Wardell is no stranger.
Along with Elaine Banner, an ambitious special agent juggling life as a single mother with her increasingly high-flying career, Blake must track Wardell down as he cuts a swathe across America, apparently killing at random.
But Blake and Banner soon find themselves sidelined from the case. And as they try desperately to second-guess a man who kills purely for the thrill of it, they uncover a hornet's nest of lies and corruption. Now Blake must break the rules and go head-to-head with the FBI if he is to stop Wardell and expose a deadly conspiracy that will rock the country.
Slick, fast-paced, and assured, The Killing Season is the first novel in the gripping new Carter Blake series.

Excellent start to the Carter Blake series!

I listened to The Samaritan, Book 2 in the series first. Mason Cross has great potential as a thriller writer and Carter Blake could become as Jack Reacher. It is ironic that Lee Child, Mark Dawson, and Mason Cross are all Brits writing mostly action thrillers set in the US. Winterlong, the next novel in the Carter Blake series, will be released in mid-2016.

A great mix of plot and action

‘The Killing Season’ is somewhere in between a thriller and mystery. There is some action but not enough to keep you on the edge of your seat but it’s not a slow methodical mystery either, making it great for people who like both genres. The characters are interesting and intriguing and the plot is interesting and well thought out, along with some great writing I found this book to be a compelling listen. I would be very interested in keeping with the series.

Mr. Meyers does a great job with the narration and really brought the characters and story to life.
