What if you could see evil?
What if evil could see you?
Kate Bishop thought she was an ordinary woman living and working in Chicago. But when she unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of a police investigation into a brutal murder, Kate makes a shocking discovery: she has the ability to identify killers just by looking into their eyes.
Trying to grasp the implications of this revelation, Kate is drawn deep into a world of terror. She is tracked down by Jack Raines, a mysterious author with shadowy connections to those who share her ability. He tells Kate that her unique vision also makes her a target, and only he can help her.
Now, hot on Jack and Kate’s heels are a force of super-predators, vicious and bloodthirsty killers who will stop at nothing until Kate is dead. But even as she fights for her life, Kate still isn’t sure if Jack is really her salvation, or another killer coming to slaughter her.
An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a landmark new novel from worldwide bestselling author Terry Goodkind, and a complete reinvention of the contemporary thriller. Travel with Goodkind on a dangerous journey to the back alleys of the darknet, to the darkest corners of our minds, and to the very origins of what it is to be human.
I am, once again, in awe of storytelling master, Terry Goodkind. I thought it a high order when the above stated that Goodkind has reinvented the thriller genre, but boy has he ever!
While labeled a "thriller", this could also be labeled as "straight-up horror" being that it deals with the underlying, base evil of human nature. (This book could easily make people paranoid!)
If thrillers are your thing, then this book will be right up your alley!
An absolutely phenomenal book!
