Das Böse in uns - 3. Fall für Smoky Barrett: Thriller

Free sample

Ein Flug nach Virginia. Alles wie gewohnt. Die Passagiere fühlen sich wohl. Auch Lisa. Bis sich ihr Nachbar zu ihr herüberlehnt und flüstert: "Lisa, ich werde dich jetzt töten."

Nach der Landung findet die Besatzung Lisas Leiche. Die FBI-Agentin Smoky Barrett hat lediglich einen Hinweis: ein silbernes Kreuz mit der Zahl 143 im Körper der Toten. Zählt der Mörder seine Opfer? Smoky hat es offenbar mit einem Serienkiller zu tun. Denn im Internet tauchen brutale Videos von Hinrichtungen auf. Die Filme verraten, dass jedes Opfer Sünden begangen hatte, die wie ein Schatten auf seiner Seele lasteten: Mord, Kinderschändung, Vergewaltigung. Mit seinen Taten will der Mörder die Schuld seiner Opfer sühnen. Smoky Barrett steht als Nächste auf seiner Liste. Denn auch sie hat ein finsteres Geheimnis.

Cody Mcfadyens Psychothriller "Das Böse in uns" ist nichts für schwache Nerven. Agentin Smoky Barrett ermittelt diesmal in einem besonders blutigen Fall.

Everyone has a secret they don’t dare tell anyone.
He’ll kill you for yours.

Cody McFadyen has shocked even the most jaded suspense fans with Shadow Man and The Face of Death. Now comes a thriller that outdoes them all, featuring a psychopath on a perverse crusade of murder. And the one woman who can stop him has a secret that will change her from the hunter to the hunted.…

A lie, a long-ago affair, a dark desire—everyone has secrets they take to the grave. No one knew that better than FBI special agent Smoky Barrett. But what secret was a very private young woman keeping that led to her very public murder? And what kind of killer was so driven and so brazenly daring that he’d take her life on a commercial airliner thirty thousand feet in midair, a killer so accomplished that he’d leave only a small souvenir behind?

These are the questions that bring Smoky and her hand-picked team of experienced manhunters from L.A. to the autumn chill of Washington, D.C., by order of the FBI director himself—and at the special request of a high-powered grieving D.C. mother.

As a mother, Smoky knows the pain of losing a child—it nearly killed her once before. As a cop with her own twisted past, she takes every murder personally, which is both her greatest strength and her only weakness. Brilliant, merciless, righteous, the killer Smoky is hunting this time is on his own personal mission, whose cost in innocent human lives he’s only begun to collect. For in his eyes no one is innocent; everyone harbors a secret sin, including Smoky Barrett.

Soon Smoky will have to face what she’s so carefully hidden even from her own team—and confront a flawless killer who knows her flaws with murderous intimacy.
