The Route 9 Killer

Kelli's latest mystery/thriller is set in Central New Jersey...

The Route 9 Killer
(A Mystery/Thriller)

Detective Jim Rourke suspects a serial killer is hunting women in Central New Jersey. The victims are held captive, brutalized, then murdered and dumped along deserted stretches of Route 9.

There’s no physical evidence, no witnesses, and the killer is smart enough to leave no clues.

Rourke is alone on a manhunt, and time is running out. Eight victims have already fallen prey to this madman.

Can Rourke catch the killer and rescue the next victim before it’s too late?

Praise for The Route 9 Killer...


“5 Stars! From the opening pages this is a gripping read that just doesn’t let up. Wilkins cleverly builds the tension throughout the story leading to a bite-your-nails climax. The book is dark at times, but excellently written and not too graphic. It alternates between the POV of the abductee, the detective, and the killer, and the author did a great job of giving each of them their own voice. I was on the edge of my seat towards the end and anyone who enjoys thrillers will appreciate the twists the author incorporated into the story.” - NurseyByNature - Vibe Reviewer 

"5 Stars! If you like mystery/thrillers, don't miss this book. The story drew me in from the first page, and kept me hooked til the very end. Kelli A. Wilkins did a great job creating tension and building suspense, and there are lots of interesting characters and plot twists. Just when I thought I had figured out the mystery, I was surprised by the ending. Although this is about a serial killer, it's not graphic or overly violent. I like Kelli's romances, but I really enjoy her mysteries and horror stories. This is a definite must-read." - M. Nemcick - Amazon Reader

“5 Stars! Awesome read. I was totally glued to the story until the very end. Great job!”
