The Monster and the Magpie
Bloodhound Books

She supplies the goods and services that every killer needs. And in that line of work, the last thing you want is a dissatisfied customer . . .

Hope Rippa may look like your average fashionista, but a dark secret bankrolls her luxury lifestyle. Although she might appear a legitimate businesswoman by day, after dark Hope serves as personal shopper to some of Europe’s wealthiest murderers. You name it, she’ll find it—and charge a hefty sum for the convenience.

She didn’t plan to marry one, though. Fifteen years ago, her engagement with prison chaplain Killian Glass ended after she discovered that he moonlighted as a murderer. Since then, their relationship has been strictly professional. In fact, he’s even her best client.

Their arrangement works—that is, until Hope makes a mistake and Killian changes the rules. Now, a gruesome game of cat-and-mouse is about to be played in the never-ending night of Iceland’s northern winter . . . But who will come out on top?

This literary thriller is perfect for fans of Killing Eve and will keep you hooked right until the last page.
