Synopsis : From acclaimed, bestselling author Andrew Pyper, a suspenseful page-turner that explores the repercussions of that most dishonest of thefts: stealing another?s story and calling it your own.
Patrick Rush, a former bright light at the National Star now demoted to the reality TV beat, is still recovering from his wife?s death when he joins a writers? group in Toronto. His goal: to write the book he?s always felt lived within him. Trouble is, Patrick has no story to tell. And while the circle?s members show similarly little literary promise, there is one exception: Angela. Her unsettling readings tell of a shadowy childhood tragedy and an unremitting fear of the Sandman, a ?terrible man who does terrible things.? It?s the stuff of nightmares or horror films. Or is it?
Over the weeks that follow, a string of unsolved murders seem increasingly connected to Patrick. And then the circle?s members start to go missing, one by one. Still haunted by loss?and by a crime only those in the circle could know of?Patrick finds himself in a fictional world made horrifically real. But nothing will put him in greater danger than that ancient curse of natural born readers: the need to know how the story ends.
At once a complex and compulsive read, The Killing Circle explores the side effects of an increasingly fame-mad culture, where even the staid realm of literature can fall prey to ravenous ambition and competition.
A propos de l'auteur: Andrew Pyper is the author of three bestselling novels, Lost Girls (a New York Times Notable Book), The Trade Mission, and The Wildfire Season, as well as Kiss Me, a collection of short stories. Lost Girls and The Killing Circle are currently in development for feature films. Andrew Pyper lives in Toronto.
