Joseph Eastburn’s electrifying novel of suspense spins the harrowing story of a serial killer with a morbid taste for display, who unleashes a diabolical frenzy at an elite boarding school for first families’ children.
Sitting atop a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside, the Ravenhill School is a bastion of exclusivity, offering the children of the nation’s first families a magnificent education and a refuge from the harsh realities beyond its ancient cloisters—until the first student is found dead, upside down in a campus garbage can.
When the body count rises, it becomes clear that Ravenhill has been invaded by a serial killer with a particularly gruesome appetite for display, each successive slaying more grotesque than the last. As the clues multiply, panic grips the environs of Ravenhill, and expert Nick Fowler is called in from out of town to break the case. From the school’s administrator who wants to keep the crimes under wraps to the police who resent an outsider’s intrusion, Nick’s investigation isn’t sitting well with the locals.
As Nick draws closer to penetrating the killer’s twisted mind, he soon becomes a target. And when the murderer plants a series of taunting clues for Nick, he must tread carefully if he hopes to not fall into a psychopath’s deadly trap.
Fast-paced, compelling, and thoroughly terrifying, Kiss Them Goodbye is a brilliant, unforgettable thriller.
