Publisher's Summary

Three years ago, working vice for the NYPD, Dan Champion uncovered a sex slavery ring run by a kingpin known only as the Fat Woman. Obsessed with bringing her down, Champion infiltrated a world of sexual obsession and perversity. He broke the case, but the case also broke him. He started taking drugs and soon began to form hallucinations...a dead child prowling the streets of New York...a beautiful woman named Samantha who would have given him the love he always wanted - if she'd only been real. Now Champion is a small-town detective, chasing burglars and juvenile delinquents, hanging out at the local tavern where he is romancing a waitress.

The ghosts and hallucinations are finally behind him as he begins to rebuild his life. Then one night Champion is called to examine the body of a woman who has washed ashore. Yet when he looks at her face, he sees that it's Samantha, the woman he dreamed about long ago...a woman who doesn't exist. Suddenly, Champion is haunted again, only this time it's by a team of expert killers who want to make sure he never finds the truth: the truth about the dead child who wanders through his imagination; the truth about the lover who inhabits his dreams; and the truth about a killer who has been on the run - in the wind - for a lifetime.

The ghosts of the dead are all around him, and Champion has to find out who murdered them, fast, or he could become one of them himself.

Reality or a dream? Flashback or Hallucination?

A Killer in the Wind is a cunning, wild ride through haunting hallucinations and the hearts of evil men. The puzzle pieces within this mystery are largely scattered amongst the recessed memories of one detective. I finished this one a lot faster than I intended to. Couldn't help it.

Andrew Klavan is one of the most involving novelists in the business today, and he is an exceptional narrator as well.

Must listen!

Written by one of the best suspense/thriller writers of all time and Klavan reads it himself and does an excellent job. 10/10

Felt like I'd watched this in tv 20 years ago..

I got the characters. I got the trauma and the flaws and the deliberate repressed memories. I didn't get the drugs and the memories or ghosts. I probably wouldn't have read this if I had not liked him in other media.

Gripping thriller.

Klavan has done it again. You won’t be able to put this book down, believe me. Great story, fantastic characters, and just an overall wonderful thriller. Give it a try. You won’t be sorry.
