The Advent Killer is the electrifying début thriller from British author, Alastair Gunn.



Three weeks before Christmas: Sunday, 1 a.m. A woman drowns in her bathtub. One week later: Sunday, 1 a.m. A woman is beaten to death at home. At first, it looks like coincidence. Then another week brings another victim.

As panic spreads across London, DCI Antonia Hawkins, leading her first murder investigation, must stop a cold, careful killer whose twisted motives can only be guessed at, before the next body is found. On Sunday.
