The Festival Killer

The Festival Killer

Author(s): Jo McCready

Location(s): Scotland

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Modern Day

Agent RJ Rox is in charge of her first case for the clandestine organization known as Kingfisher. A ticking clock and a colleague who could make the whole assignment blow up in her face, pile on the pressure in a case that seems impossible to crack.

An ambassador’s secret love child, gone missing at the Berlin Book Festival years previously, leads her in a direction she never could have imagined . . . and back to the streets of Scotland.

As RJ searches for answers, she learns the truth is stranger than fiction when she sets her sights on a world-famous crime writer. Does a new book hold the key to the whole case, and can RJ unlock it in time?

RJ’s playing a deadly game with a killer who has something to prove—almost as much as she has.
