The billionaire picked a heck of a way to die.


On a beautiful Saturday in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota, state investigator Kirk Stevens and his occasional colleague FBI special agent Carla Windermere witness the assassination of one of the state’s wealthiest men. The shooter is a young man, utterly unremarkable—except in his eyes. There is something very wrong in his eyes.

And it’s only the beginning. The events of that sunny springtime day will lead Stevens and Windermere across the country, down countless blind alleys, and finally to a very flourishing twenty-first-century enterprise: a high-tech murder-for-hire social media website. But just who has the dead-eyed shooter targeted next . . . and who’s choosing his victims? That’s where things get complicated.


REVIEWS

"Owen Laukkanen's fast-paced, no-frills style is brisk, blunt and fueled entirely by adrenaline."
New York Times

"Once more, Laukkanen scores one of the thrillers of the year. It will be difficult to top Kill Fee, but once more, I expect he will."

National Post

"Enthralling...KILL FEE works well as an in-depth police procedural and an insightful look at amorality and greed. Laukkanen employs the same strengths of brisk plotting and incisive character studies that he established in his first two novels."
Huffington Post

"This fast-paced tale is nicely choreographed by Laukkanen, with plenty of action, interesting characters and a good sense of place. Recommended."
The Sydney Morning Herald on KILL FEE.

"I thoroughly enjoyed this one...The frenzied pacing of the writing drops you in the middle of the action on page one and the heart-pounding cross country chase of the killer does not let up until the final scene."
The Jones Journal

"Further proof that Owen Laukkanen is one of the best young thriller writers working today. His pace is relentless, his plots are satisfyingly intricate and his prose is cut-to-the-bone lean."
Richmond Times, Dispatch

"Kill Fee has a very riveting plot that includes mayhem and misdirection. It has characters that are very well developed and intriguing. This intense novel is a must read for anyone who enjoys suspenseful thrillers."
Military Press

"I thoroughly enjoyed this one...The frenzied pacing of the writing drops you in the middle of the action on page one and the heart-pounding cross country chase of the killer does not let up until the final scene." 
The Jones Journal

"Like The Professionals and Criminal Enterprise, Kill Fee is teeth-rattling suspense and top-notch entertainment. It would be a perfect companion for a vacation or a long train ride, because you'll want to devour it in one or two gulps. After I read it, it made my day to hear Laukkanen is working on the fourth in this series. I can hardly wait."
Read Me Deadly 

"A blistering pace...with a serpentine plot that writhes through high-tech and low-life corruption."
Publisher's Weekly

"Once again, Owen Laukkanen has produced a fast and furious thriller, full of mayhem and misdirection."
