The Storykiller


Some secrets are worth killing for…

Jack Winter was once an idealistic and brilliant news reporter who broke the biggest stories around. But after wrongly blaming himself for a young girl’s murder he changed sides and became a crisis manager for the rich and powerful, protecting them from exactly the kind of journalist he used to be.

Acutely aware of how he has betrayed his principles, Jack is ashamed of what he has become. But it is the only way he knows to make a living, so he continues covering up the sins of the wealthy and famous, and killing the stories his old friends want to publish.

But when a new client drags Jack into a lethal world of corruption and long-buried secrets, he finds himself wishing he could turn back the clock, because now he is fighting not just for headlines but his life.

The début novel from Humfrey Hunter, The Storykiller is a new addition to the great modern fiction traditions of Robert Harris, Harlan Coben and the House of Cards trilogy.
