The Killing Song by P.J. Parrish

Matt Owens is a reporter with The Miami Herald, but he really hasn't had his heart in his job lately. So when his younger sister Mandy comes to vacation with Matt, he decides to show her the sights and make this a vacation she will never forget. But on her last night before flying back home, Mandy disappears off of the dance floor.

Matt looks for her everywhere but doesn't take long before calling in his contacts at the police department to help search for her. It isn't like Mandy to run off. With the help of Nora, an ex-lover and member of the police department, Mandy is found within hours. However, she has been murdered, and the only clue is a song on her ipod.

Matt is determined to find Mandy's killer. With the song on the ipod as his only clue, he uses it to launch his own investigation that takes him across seas to Paris and Scotland. Eva Bellamont has been trying to find this phantom killer for years, much to her department's dismay. Eva borders on obsessed and it is that obsession that helps Matt's quest.

THE KILLING SONG is a spine-chilling thriller that will keep you up late into the night. With twists and turns, a cold-blooded killer with a long and bloody past and complex and engrossing characters, THE KILLING SONG will keep your heart pumping and on the edge-of-your-seat.


  1. Sounds like a really good book! Thanks for the review; I hadn't heard of this one before.

  2. Sounds intriguing, I love a good thriller!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
