FICTION SUSPENSE & THRILLERS
debut serial killer thriller!
Michelle Gagnon's debut
thriller, The Tunnels, is a
welcome new voice.
This serial killer thriller chills the reader with an unusual motive
and an ancient ritual that unfolds with page-turning suspense. Readers
may not want to read this book alone at night. A New England college
with a labyrinth of tunnels underground, rich girls found dead ---
their fathers leaders in the world--- victims slain in a ritualistic
and brutal fashion, ancient rituals from a religion unknown except to
scholars...a serial killer whose pace is quickening...what more could a
person want in a thriller? Thriller lovers will want to grab this debut
book and catch the Michelle Gagnon ride while it is beginning.
When a college girl is found brutally and ritualistically murdered
in the tunnels below the college, FBI Special Agent Kelly Jones sees
the evidence, she knows that she has never encountered a serial killer
like the one before her now. With the body count increasing, Kelley
Jones must unravel the clues to prevent more killings. As she gets
closer and closer, the killer begins to taunt her. Can she find him in
time and will she survive their encounter?
Readers may want to read this book with the light on (not a book
light!) or get an early start in the day. Something about a shadowed
dark room, these tunnels and the kidnap scenes makes a person crave
light. Kelley Jones is a multi-dimensional character. Following the
trail of the serial killer with her as a guide is just downright
thrilling. If you like thrillers with serial killers, this is a great
choice. Even if, like me, you normally do not read serial killer
thrillers, The Tunnels might
surprise and please a reader. I certainly
enjoyed this thriller much more than most to eagerly await the next
Michelle Gagnon thriller.
