For five years, the Fourth Monkey Killer, a pseudo-vigilante serial killer, has reigned terror on the city of Chicago....punishing those he believes "Do evil" by abducting their daughters.
Within days, they receive a small white box...."Hear no evil".
Then a second box...."See no evil".
Then a third...."Speak no evil".
Within two days, the body will be dumped.
The FMK task force have nothing. He leaves no evidence. No clues. And most disturbing of all, every target he has chosen.....have done evil.
When a man is killed by a bus, the lead investigator of the task force gets a call. The unidentifiable man was carrying one of FMK's boxes. The first of three.
FMK may be dead, but he has left a living victim who is still in danger.
He was also carrying a diary, one that may reveal who he was.....and what made him.
Was it an accident....or suicide?
Is the diary the key to finding FMK's final victim.....or a red herring written by the most unreliable narrator of them all?
Is this even FMK?
The hunt is on.....and the game hasn't even come close to ending.
Barker has written a thriller that goes beyond breakneck....there are no brakes. It twists so hard, so fast....it leaves the reader with whiplash....and keeps them guessing right to the final sentence.
