Summary

When a young hunting guide from a remote island in Alaska is found brutally murdered, his naked body is discovered in the Cascade Mountains outside Seattle—the shocking pinnacle to a grisly Totem of body parts. Nathan Applewhite is the fourteenth victim of a cunning serial killer who targets and stalks young men. 
 
With the body count escalating, FBI profiler Ryker Townsend and his specialized team investigate the gruesome crime scene. They find no reason for Nate to have mysteriously vanished from his isolated home in Alaska before he ended up in the hands of a sadist, who has been taunting Ryker and his team in a sinister game of 'catch me if you can.' 
 
But Townsend has a secret he won't share with anyone—not even his own team—that sets him on the trail of a ruthless psychopath, alone. The intuitive FBI profiler is plagued by recurring nightmares—seen through Nate's dead eyes—that slowly chips away at his mental stability. Is he burning out and losing his mind—becoming unfit for duty—or is the last victim reaching out to him from the grave? 
 
Townsend sees horrific flashes of memory, imprinted on the retinas of a dead man, the last image Applewhite saw when he died. Ryker must piece together the fragments. Each nightmarish clue brings him closer to a killer who knows how to hide in plain sight and will see him coming, but when the dead man has the skills of a hunting guide, he has the perfect ally to track down a killer—the last victim.

    Bad Things Happen, Harry Dolan’s best-selling debut and the first in his David Loogan series, marked Dolan as a writer to watch.
    His novels Very Bad Men and The Last Dead Girl were both chosen as Wall Street Journal "Top Mysteries of the Year."
    The Good Killer is an intensely plotted thriller, showing Dolan’s skill as a writer of this genre.
    Dolan incorporates the terror and confusion of a senseless public shooting into the more complex overall plot.
    The novel takes place all over the U.S. as Molly and Sean flee across the country in search of the tenuous safety they had attained, though special focus is paid to Dolan’s home state of Michigan.
