Killer Within

Killer Within by Jeff Gunhus
Book One: Allison McNeil Series

Arnie Milhouse is a murderer. A millionaire with dozens of kills in his past and no one the wiser. But when his name surfaces in connection with the death of a D.C. call girl, Arnie knows it’s only a matter of time before the FBI puts the pieces together. As he makes plans to disappear and leave his life in Annapolis behind forever, he meets a beautiful, mysterious woman who takes an interest in him. The perfect final victim. He can’t believe his luck.

Only luck has nothing to do with it.

Allison McNeil has returned to Annapolis, a city that she promised herself she would never come back to, not while the cruel memories of her time at the United States Naval Academy still haunt her. But she’s willing to do just about anything to get close to Arnie, even if it means having to face down the demons of her past. Her plans work and soon she and Arnie find themselves locked in a dangerous dance of seduction and betrayal. But Arnie isn’t the only one who carries a secret and the dark truth about Allison McNeil makes a final confrontation between them inevitable. Neither of them know it, but they’re on a collision course that only one of them will survive.

“A balanced blend of heart-pounding visuals and soul-searching introspection, Killer Within, Gunhus’s second novel, reaches beyond ordinary expectations for the genre. Gunhus exhibits a distinctive style typically found in seasoned authors like Dean Koontz and Stephen King.”

– Clarion Foreword Reviews 5 STARS

“I read a LOT of books and am very particular. This book captures you right from the first page and make you want to stay up all night reading it. Very suspenseful and a page turner. Great mystery plots. I would recommend this book to everyone I know. A must read! Can’t wait till his next book!”

– Ellie Cogar

“Killer Within is an absorbing study of both a killer’s mind as well as his pursuer’s motivation. The cat-and-mouse game between the two main characters moves to its conclusion with the outcome unclear until the last pages.”

– IndieReader

“Killer Within is the first book by Author Jeff Gunhus, but it certainly will not be my last. I really hope that Allison continues telling her story, because I am not done reading about her just yet. This is a wonderful book that took no time to suck me in. I had a hard time putting it down at night.”

– Ann M Wilson

“Killer Within is a huge success! The intermingled multiple mystery plotlines and detailed descriptions of the locale in which this novel takes place combine to make this a breathtaking, scary and interesting work. Once I picked it up I was hard pressed to put it down.”

– Gloria Frost
