If you run, it catches you.
If you hide, it finds you.
If you breathe, it may kill you.
NO ONE can escape it.
An explosive debut thriller that will keep you enthralled until the very last page.
Livio Marchiori, a legendary homicide detective with the highest rate of solved cases in Verona, Italy, is faced with The Hypnotist, a serial killer whose modus operandi borders the supernatural and who is as elusive as a ghost.
The dead bodies start piling up, the media are putting a lot of pressure on the police, and the mayor himself makes it clear he wants The Hypnotist off the streets and he wants it done yesterday. But all of the clues Marchiori finds seem to take him nowhere and the few leads he manages to unearth prove nothing but dead-ends.
Then The Hypnotist gets personal. He threatens to kill the chief medical examiner, the woman Marchiori is in love with, next.
So when Captain Victor Miller from Interpol walks into town, Marchiori is more than happy to partner again with the man who two years ago helped him put an entire mafia clan behind bars. But Miller has his own agenda and an even more dangerous fish to fry. He has proof that a secret medical research lab in Verona is about to launch a biological terrorist attack.
And just when Marchiori thinks the situation can’t get any worse than this, he finds out that Miller isn’t who he claims to be.
Feeling at the end of his tether and not knowing who to trust anymore, Marchiori begins a race against time to save both the woman he loves and millions of people from dying.
EVO is a compelling, gripping page-turner with a breathtaking twist that will keep you awake until the first light of dawn.
"He stripped down, threw his clothes in the blue hamper behind the door, and got in the shower. He turned his body away from the faucet and placed his hands on the wall, letting the hot water beat down his back. Doing this usually relaxed him, but now it somehow amplified this weird restlessness, this foreboding feeling he couldn’t shake off. Annoyed at himself, he quickly washed his body, turned off the faucet and reached for the brown towel on the hook.
A heavy silence filled his apartment. A few drops of water from the shower head splashed onto the ceramic tiles below, the sound deafening to his ears. His heart started beating faster. All of a sudden he wanted to hear human voices, his neighbours yelling at each other, their baby crying, anything but this dead silence and the rhythmic tapping of the water drops.
An icy shiver rippled down his spine and his body started shaking. Unseen walls were sliding down around him, trapping him. Suffocating him."
