Book Description

June 1 2008

A detective and an FBI agent embark upon the most harrowing case of their careers as they attempt to track down an enigmatic killer in this relentlessly suspenseful thriller. The killer announces his heinous acts in advance with desperate phone calls and ties his crimes together with songs that point to his victims; he then mutilates them and removes their faces. Set in Monte Carlo and featuring an international cast of intriguing characters, the hunt for the deranged perpetrator remains gripping and unsettling, possibly even more so, after the killer’s identity is revealed and the detectives must close in on their target before he strikes again. Written with richness and aplomb, this international bestseller presents a major talent to the American market for the first time, providing its audience with a memorably horrific thrill that may ultimately prove unshakable.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Personal tragedies affect almost everyone involved in Faletti's well-constructed serial killer novel set in glitzy Monte Carlo. FBI agent Frank Ottobre is recovering in Monaco from his wife's death by visiting his friend police commissioner Nicolas Hulot when the first deaths occur, of an American race car driver and the celebrated driver's chess champion girlfriend. Ottobre is soon drawn into a baffling case where the killer goads police with untraceable phone calls to Jean-Loup Verdier, the principality's most popular radio host, before each murder. As the victim count mounts, so does the suspense in this fine cat-and-mouse game of skill and subtlety. A smooth translation and several intriguing subplots, one of which features a powerful American general intent on vigilante justice, keep the pace moving briskly, despite the unusual length. First published in Italy in 2002, this winning novel marks Milan-based publisher Baldini Castoldi Dalai's entry into the U.S. market. (June)

5.0 out of 5 stars a story to remember Oct. 1 2012
By Mr. Charles Umphred - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have not finished this book and already have been recommending it to people...I am an avid reader....so when something comes along that I say is the kind of book you will "always" remember, you know I really love it. I Kill is one of those books!

The writing is easy to stay with. Sometimes a book can get so involved in material that has no significant relation to the story (Girl With Dragon Tatoo has so much "extra" stuff that I almost stopped "listening to it on audio.)....the story keeps you going forward...you are never bored...each chapter ends with you wanting to keep reading to find out more.

I read on the dust jacket that it is expected to be made into a movie...I can't wait to see those details!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Io uccido Nov. 20 2013
By gio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
probably "I kill" is the best thriller novel written in Italy in recent years.
This is an exciting book, written with attention to detail.
In Italy Giorgio Faletti is already known as showman, actor, singer, and since 2008 has been one of the most popular writers.
"I kill" does not stand comparison with the great thriller "made ​​in the USA, UK or Sweden."
5.0 out of 5 stars I Kill - a terrific and exhilarating work. Nov. 11 2013
By Mr. K. Sonola - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A literally terrific piece of work which pierces your heart and mind with exhilarating pace and action.
Giorgio Faletti is a master writer who infuses the reader with both a sense of foreboding and tremendous need to read on.
2.0 out of 5 stars I kill July 19 2013
By Robert John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Intense but kind of flat. No depth to it. Read like an outline. Too graphic. Not my type of book. My poor choice.
