The Killing Lessons by Saul Black (December 2015)

When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper's isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it's the end of everything.  For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it's just another stop on a long and bloody journey.  And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done.

For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, the trail of corpses - women abducted, tortured and left posed with a seemingly random series of objects - has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and emotional destruction.  If she can't save the next victim, the darkness will take her too.

But the slaughter at the Cooper farmhouse didn't quite go according to plan.  There was a survivor, Rowena's ten-year-old daughter Nell.  Her escape is the key to the killings - and how to stop them.  Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go.  A place that could be even more terrifying than what she's running from.
