“Readers looking for a good scare will delight in this novel, even if they suddenly feel compelled to sleep with the lights on.” ~ Publishers Weekly
“Gunhus delivers a taut supernatural thriller…the powerful Nate Huckley terrifies, and the assorted cast of human antagonists add to the white-knuckle tension. All the chops of an action-packed horror tal.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
“…unforgettable, exceptional debut. A primitive ritual and an ancient secret threaten a family’s safety in this heart-pounding tale of horrific madness, Guaranteed to trigger night sweats along with a childlike, irrational fear of the creaky attic, Jeff Gunhus’s Night Chill will not disappoint horror fans.” ~ Forward Clarion Reviews, 5 Stars
Title: Killer Within: An Allison McNeil Thriller | Author: Jeff Gunhus | Publication Date: March 11, 2014 | Publisher: Seven Guns Press | Pages: 328 | Recommended Ages: Adult
Summary: Arnie Milhouse is a murderer. A millionaire with dozens of kills in his past and no one the wiser. But when his name surfaces in connection with the death of a D.C. call girl, Arnie knows it’s only a matter of time before the FBI puts the pieces together. As he makes plans to disappear and leave his life in Annapolis behind forever, he meets a beautiful, mysterious woman who takes an interest in him. The perfect final victim. He can’t believe his luck.
Only luck has nothing to do with it.
Allison McNeil has returned to Annapolis, a city that she promised herself she would never come back to, not while the cruel memories of her time at the United States Naval Academy still haunt her. But she’s willing to do just about anything to get close to Arnie, even if it means having to face down the demons of her past. Her plans work and soon she and Arnie find themselves locked in a dangerous dance of seduction and betrayal. But Arnie isn’t the only one who carries a secret and the dark truth about Allison McNeil makes a final confrontation between them inevitable. Neither of them know it, but they’re on a collision course that only one of them will survive.
Buzz About “Killer Within”
“I have been following the writing and character development skills of author, Jeff Gunhus, for some time. His growth and attention to detail really shine through in this novel. KILLER WITHIN is a huge success! The intermingled multiple mystery plotlines and detailed descriptions of the locale in which this novel takes place combine to make this a breathtaking, scary and interesting work. Once I picked it up I was hard pressed to put it down. Can’t wait for Gunhus’ next novel! ” ~ 5 Star Review, Gloria Frost, Amazon
“KILLER WITHIN is an absorbing study of both a killer’s mind as well as his pursuer’s motivation. The cat-and-mouse game between the two main characters moves to its conclusion with the outcome unclear until the last pages.” ~ IndieReader
“A balanced blend of heart-pounding visuals and soul-searching introspection, Killer Within, Gunhus’s second novel, reaches beyond ordinary expectations for the genre. Gunhus exhibits a distinctive style typically found in seasoned authors like Dean Koontz and Stephen King.” ~ Forward Clarion Reviews, 5 Stars
About the Author: Jeff Gunhus
Jeff Gunhus grew up in Cyprus, Greece, and Saudi Arabia where there was a distinct lack of television. He quickly found books were the gateway to incredible adventures, fascinating characters and unbelievable discoveries. Now, with five children of his own (all who watch too much television, in his opinion), he has enjoyed revisiting his old books and reliving those adventures all over again.
