THE KILLING: Uncommon Denominator (Titan Books; 2014)
Original novel based on the Fox/AMC television series “The Killing.”
Set in Seattle, The Killing stars Mireille Enos (Big Love) as Sarah Linden, the lead homicide detective investigating the death of Rosie Larsen – a local teenager.
The show also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they’ve moved on, their past isn’t done with them.
This brand-new orginal The Killing novel follows detective Sarah Linden as she takes on her newest and most challenging case yet.
Praise for The Killing television series:
“Strikingly good.” - Entertainment Weekly
“Soaked in atmosphere and steeped in the stark realism of Scandinavian crime novelists Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson.” - Vancouver Sun
“Excellent, absorbing and addictive. When each episode ends, you long for the next — a hallmark of great dramas.” - Hollywood Reporter

Put simply, it’s a non-stop delight of a read.” – New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry
