Beautiful but deadly. Restraints. Shackles. But no one escapes her steely gaze. New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg raises the stakes in Bad Karma, a harrowing suspense thriller with a paranormal twist. Brutal murder, deadly secrets, a southern California rampage — all wrapped around a hospital for criminal justice and a lethal beauty who escapes her cell to pursue a dark path toward the one man who shares her very, very bad karma.
In a past life, lovely Agnes Hatcher believed she and her psych tech, Trey Campbell, were murderous lovers, buying future incarnations together through violent means. Now, he’s abandoned her to go on vacation with his wife and kids to sun-soaked Catalina Island. But she knows he’ll never survive -- without her.
With its fast-paced, no-holds-barred style and and ruthless killer, this one’s for fans of James Patterson, Gillian Flynn and Dean Koontz.
