Author(s): Richard House
An astonishing landmark novel in four books, The Kills is both a political thriller and a bravura literary performance. This title includes The Kills: Sutler, The Massive, The Kill, The Hit. The Kills is an epic novel of crime and conspiracy told in four books. It begins with a man on the run and ends with a burned body. Moving across continents, characters and genres, there will be no more ambitious or exciting novel in 2013. In a ground-breaking collaboration between author and publisher, Richard House has also created multimedia content that takes you beyond the boundaries of the book and into the characters' lives outside its pages.
A set of four interlocking narratives, connecting fraud and conspiracy in post invasion Iraq, the disappearance of an American student in Turkey, a mystery man on the run, and a gruesome Italian murder. Thoroughly modern in style, this intricately woven thriller starts with a bang and never lets up. - Lucy
