Book Description

Murder makes monsters of people. Prosper Snow knows that better than most. Now he's back on the trail of another serial killer, only this time there's far more to the case than meets the eye. Thwarted at every turn, Prosper unwittingly uncovers a human experiment more monstrous than anything he could ever imagine. Now the only way to crack the case is to work from the inside and join a shadowy government agency that operates outside the law. Only he might be too late as the experiment has spiralled out of control. 
-----------------------------

It was always clear that Jeffrey was a writer who knew how to entertain readers, but with Killers he shows that he's ready to take the next step and challenge them as well. -- Elizabeth A. White
 
Killers is one of those books that grabs you by the throat and won't let go.-- Ginger Nuts of Horror
 
As a follow-up to The Kult, this was brilliant.-- Wistfulskimmie's Book Reviews
 
If you are into gory and terrifying thrillers then this is the book for you.-- Geeky Girl Reviews

About the Author

Shaun Jeffrey was brought up in a house in a cemetery, so it was only natural for his prose to stray towards the dark side when he started writing. He has had five novels published, 'Killers', 'The Kult', 'Deadfall', 'Fangtooth' and 'Evilution', and one collection of short stories, 'Voyeurs of Death'. Among his other writing credits are short stories published in Cemetery Dance, Surreal Magazine, Dark Discoveries and Shadowed Realms. The Kult was optioned for film by Gharial Productions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy follow up to The Kult July 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is Prosper Snow's second outing and takes place about a year after the events of The Kult. Someone is indiscriminately killing people again and it is up to Prosper to get to the bottom of it. At each murder site he is thwarted and turned away by a government official. It soon becomes obvious that not all is as it seems. A bizarre experiment is taking place and Prosper needs to put a stop to it. To do that he must work from within and that means accepting a job offer from these mysterious people. Enlisting the help of his old friend Wolfe and a cat-burglar, he sets to work.

As a follow-up to The Kult, this was brilliant. It is necessary, however, to have read The Kult as there are many flashbacks and it could become confusing. Despite this though it was another great thriller. Once again it was gritty, graphic and in your face. Prosper came across as more human, having been damaged by what happened the previous year. It was nice to see Wolfe again and he provided the perfect foil for Prosper. The pace was relentless and I was burning up my Kindle to find out what happened next. The last two or three chapters were particularly heart stopping and claustrophobic, and I had to remember to breathe again at the end! A fantastic follow up to The Kult, and I hope this isn't the last we see of Prosper Snow.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid, thrilling novel November 8, 2011
Format:Paperback
As a police officer, Prosper Snow is no stranger to dealing with murder, and he is always determined to solve his cases. Sometimes, he gets a little to close to the case for comfort. So, when people start taking his murder investigations away from him, he is determined to find out why. He learns that the recent murders are tied to a scientific experiment got bad, and the agency in charge of solving the problem wants him on their team. They will get his cooperation, even if it means blackmale. But is the killer really the person they think it is?

I am a huge fan of thriller and crime literature, and I have a sick fascination with serial killers, so this book really appealed to me. While this is the second in a series, I can say, having not read the first, that this book serves as a great stand alone novel. The character of Prosper Snow, although a bit removed and mysterious, is well developed, and it is easy to find yourself rooting for him to get the bad guy.

I was quite intrigued with the story. As a student of psychology, I was fascinated by the concept of the experiment at the center of the plot. I was aware of some of the scientific concepts the study was being based on, yet it still felt like a new spin on old ideas, which I really enjoyed. I was surprised to learn who the real killer was, which is always a sign of a well written suspense novel.

Clearly, with a title like Killers, you know there is going to be some violence in the book, but I felt is was not gratuitous. It served the purpose of driving the plot, and I thought it was well written. All in all, I think fans of thrillers, crime dramas, suspense, and even mysteries will enjoy this solid novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will he ever learn? June 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a stand alone book, unlike some series where you HAVE to read the one before to know whats going on. I like that... But be sure to read the first one "The Kult" excelent book!

You'll understand the man better...

Prosper Snow... What can I say, this is the second book in his series...

In the first book he's just an ordinary man who gets caught up in some thing he can't seem to get out of, can't seem to stop or change how it'll end!

Well... Of course he COULD have stopped it, but not with out hurting his family and him self, realistically he did what he and most people would feel they had to do, to self preserve. He felt and was essentually trapped!

Oh ya he has made his mistakes all right! Boy, did he really step in it this time!

Now he's haunted by the past... In his mind, in his real life... And there's another serial killer on the loose!

I couldn't see how this author could top the first book... And he didn't.. HE ADDED TO IT!

No disapointment here... Shaun Jeffery delievered yet again!

Shaun your an excelent writer, I love your books and I say this with humor.... After reading what you write.... I don't think I want to meet YOU in a dark ally!

Lololololol..... But then I read them didn't I, Lololol, mmmmm ....

4.0 out of 5 stars Nature and Nurture, Part II August 17, 2014
Format:Paperback
I fell in love with the first book in this series: the faulty characters, the twisted plot, and the excellent pacing in ‘The Kult’ had me from chapter one. So, I dived into ‘Killers’ to read more about Prosper Snow and how the terrible events of ‘The Kult’ where going to affect him in this sequel. And I can honestly say that character development isn’t an issue here, as Snow certainly bears the scars and changes from a ‘simple mainstream cop’ into a more daring and dour individual. However, I was a bit disappointed by seeing him turning from a ‘realistic’ detective to an over-the-top action man. I understand the author attempt at offering something different from the first novel, and I don’t blame him for creating a spy-story like plot with elements of advanced psychology (and praise to Jeffrey for his excellent research on various real life inhumane experiments), but, sadly, I found myself losing interest in the main characters after the first plot twist. But it's just me, as I am more a fan of gritty, complex psychological stories, where the trick is understanding what ties the killer with the characters (something that was excellently done in ‘The Kult’).
Now, if you haven’t read ‘The Kult’, absolutely read that book first, for while this second installment can be read as a stand alone novel (the author gives you some background about what happened there without spoiling it for you), it is much more enjoyable if you know all the details that will drag Snow into this second terrible event of his life.
There’s a recurring theme in the Prosper Snow series: Nature and Nurture.
It is just traced in ‘The Kult’, but it definitely marks ‘Killers’. An interesting theme and something, I think, Shaun Jeffrey should keep exploring in the next part of the saga.
Though I liked it less than ‘The Kult’, this is an excellent, fast-paced novel, and I will surely read more from this author.
