Product description


“A red-hot suspenser aimed at readers for whom a single serial killer just isn’t enough.” Kirkus Reviews

From the Publisher

It’s been years since a killer calling himself the Reaper went on a spree that terrorized Tooele County, Utah...and then went quiet. Everyone has finally moved on—everyone except the Reaper. On the anniversary of the first murders, new victims are found dead, accompanied by a letter that begins, “This is Reaper speaking.”

As the killings intensify, and the letters keep coming, local sheriff Billie Gray finds herself out of her depth and in desperate need of help. Solomon Shepard was the most cunning and dedicated homicide prosecutor the Tooele County Attorney’s Office ever had. But when a defendant attacked him in court, sending him to the hospital for weeks, Shepard stopped practicing law. Knowing how brilliant Shepard is at serial murderer psychopathology, Gray begs him to come back to the game and help her solve this case.

Together, Shepard and Gray make an unstoppable team in this nail-biting series starter. Winner of the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction, Victor Methos masterfully blends courtroom drama and the crimes of a serial killer into this fast-paced thriller.
The Secret Witness is Methos’s best work yet.

—Megha Parekh, Editor

At the age of thirteen, when his best friend was interrogated by the police for over eight hours and confessed to a crime he didn’t commit, Victor Methos knew he would one day become a lawyer.

After graduating from law school at the University of Utah, Methos sharpened his teeth as a prosecutor for Salt Lake City before founding what would become the most successful criminal defense firm in Utah.

In ten years Methos conducted more than one hundred trials. One particular case stuck with him, and it eventually became the basis for his first major bestseller, The Neon Lawyer. Since that time, Methos has focused his work on legal thrillers and mysteries, earning a Harper Lee Prize for The Hallows and an Edgar nomination for Best Novel for his title A Gambler’s Jury. He currently splits his time between southern Utah and Las Vegas.
