Product description


Called to mind Thomas Harris' earlier work --- a serial killer novel with just the right amount of intensity, suspense and a clever murderer who always seems to be one step ahead of everybody else.-- "Bookreporter"

The intensifying, suspenseful investigation ends in a shocking, made-for-TV reveal [...] The fast-paced story and twisted villain will appeal to fans of crime dramas.-- "Library Journal"

A real corker [...] Good idea, expertly executed.-- "Booklist"

Written in taut, tight chapters that land like a hail of bullets. You'll race through this story.--Brian Freeman, New York Times bestselling author of THE DEEP, DEEP SNOW

Scott Shepherd is a dazzling storyteller, whose authentic and richly textured characters and clever, pulsating plotting captivate. THE LAST COMMANDMENT is a riveting and wondrously satisfying thriller with that all too rare commodity: abundant heart and soul.--May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives

A twisty, turny, globetrotting tale filled with mystery and suspense.--F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author

An enthralling mystery that will hook you on the very first page and keep you turning until the last. Shepherd's signature storytelling is on full display in THE LAST COMMANDMENT.--Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author

Ingeniously constructed and breathlessly told, The Last Commandment is Scott Shepherd at his gripping best.--Charles Ardai, publisher of Hard Case Crime

Scott Shepherd is a marvelous storyteller, and The Last Commandment is further proof of his abilities. Smart, funny, and layered with a terrific sense of time and place, the story rockets from one twist to the next while always deepening the questions of family, trust, and the weight of old sins. A gem of a thriller, not to be missed.--Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author

A serial killer seems to be taking his cues from Agatha Christie and Ellery Queen [...] A fast-paced tale that weds its golden-age homage to some serious violence. Sinners beware.-- "Kirkus"
