NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A resourceful runaway alone in the wilds of Los Angeles, twelve-year-old Billy Straight suddenly witnesses a brutal stabbing in Griffith Park. Fleeing into the night, Billy cannot shake the horrific memory of the savage violence, nor the pursuit of a cold-blooded killer. For wherever Billy turns—from Hollywood Boulevard to the boardwalks of Venice—he is haunted by the chuck, chuck sound of a knife sinking into flesh. “Taut, compelling . . . Everything a thriller ought to be. The writing is excellent. The plotting is superior. The characters ring true.”—USA Today As LAPD homicide detective Petra Connor desperately searches for the murderer, as the media swarms mercilessly around the story, the vicious madman stalks closer to his prey. Only Petra can save Billy. But it will take all her cunning to uncover a child lost in a fierce urban labyrinth—where a killer seems right at home. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Guilt.

Euthanasia... or murder? In Doctor Death, New York Times No. 1 bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman demonstrates once again his unique insights into the darkest corners of the human psyche. Perfect for fans of Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben. 'Kellerman is the acknowledged king of the psychological thriller' - Dallas Morning News People are voluntarily dying before their time in California. Some call it assisted suicide when cancer, heart disease or painful old age make the quality of life unbearable. Others say it is murder, that no-one has the right to help others take their own life. As the debate rages over whether euthanasia should be legalised or not, the man at the centre of the row, nicknamed Doctor Death, continues his work. Dr Alex Delaware joins in the argument, but when Detective Milo Sturgis comes to him with the suspicion that some of Doctor Death's patients are not willing collaborators, Delaware finds himself on the frontline of the affair, and increasingly believes that euthanasia is not the prime motivation. So what is driving Doctor Death to kill so many? What readers are saying about Doctor Death: 'A book that keeps you fascinated from beginning to the end' 'I could not put it down' 'Five stars'

TWISTED is the second Petra Connor novel and a superb example of Jonathan Kellerman's mastery of the psychological thriller Detective Petra Connor is struggling with a baffling drive-past murder when Isaac Gomez, a young research prodigy, tells her he's found something she might want to see. His theory that there's a connection between six unsolved murders committed in the LAPD area over the past six years, all at around midnight on June 28, seems fanciful at first - but soon the links become clearer. Something evil has managed to conceal itself between the dry pages of the files: a series of killings so meticulously constructed that the mind behind them would have remained invisible without Isaac's sharp probing. And June 28 is just a month away - will Petra be able to stop the murderer from striking again?
