    1. Arka kapakta yazan " Ya severek dinlediğiniz sıradan bir şarkı , bir gün 'Ölüm Şarkı'nız olursa ? " acaba bunu yazan kitabı okumuş mu ?

    2. kitapasigi/2013/0Tanıtım videosunu izledikten sonra bu kitabı kesinlikle benim olmalı diye düşünmüştüm.

    5. Another excellent book by the Sisters! I must say first though that I am really disappointed that this is not a Louis Kincaid book and that I think the fans of the Sisters have waited long enough for another one. This character was fantastic though. easy to be sucked into the book. Lots of thrills and just an all around good read. But, it is time to get back to Louis!

    6. A First Reads Giveaway I finished it in one and a half days it was that compelling. The first chapter didn't really grab me. Thought it would be just another routine find the killer of a young girl plot. Within pages, however, it became clear that the characters in this book, especially the killer, were complex and interesting. The writing style just kept leading you deeper and deeper into the mystery--glimpses of the murderer and his history making you want to learn ever more about him. The set [...]

    7. Matt Owens ve kız kardeşi bir gün gece kulübüne giderler ve kız kardeşi bir adamla dans ederken ortadan kaybolur. Üstelik Matt çok kısa bir süre için onlardan gözlerini ayırmıştır. Kız bulunduğunda cani bir şekilde öldürülmüştür ve yanındaki iPod’unda kızın sevmediği bir türden müzik vardır. Bu müzik kızın öldürüldüğü saatte yüklenmiştir. Matt de bunu katilin yüklediğini düşünür ve işin peşini bırakmaz. Konu güzel. Bu seri katil sarışın [...]

    8. Oh be! Uzun zamandır şöyle ağız tadıyla bir cinayet romanı okuyamıyordum ve aradığımı nihayet bulabildim. Trendeki Kız’ı yarım bırakıp buna başladım ve ilaç gibi geldi diyebilirim. Öncelikle bu kitapta katilin kim olduğunu aramıyorsunuz aksine katil belli ve kurbanın ağabeyi ile katilin koşuşturmacasını okuyorsunuz.Yeni tanıştığım bir yazar ve girişi bile ben çok etkilediğini söylemek istiyorum. Uzun zamandır kitaplığımda duruyordu ve anca okuyabildim. [...]

    10. The author of The Killing Song, P.J. Parrish is actually two sisters, Kelly Nichols and Kris Montee. How I have not been aware of this writing team, I do not know, but I want to read more. This book was intense. I could feel the evilness of the serial killer seeping off the pages. He was twisted, disturbed, kinky, and very cunning - everything I love to hate in a villain. Matt Owens is the ideal broken hero. From Putlitzer Prize nominated to just shy of an alcoholic, he has to pull himself toget [...]

    11. Gerçekten çok ama çok önemli romanlardan bir tanesi benim için. Gerilim, korku, hüzün aradığınız her duyguyu belki de kitapta bulabilirsiniz. Akıcı bir dili olmasının yanı sıra kurgusu ve karakterlerin özellikleri gerçek anlamda sıra dışı.Kitaba gerçekten hayran olacaksınız.Çello ve kemana olan ilgim sayesinde kitabı görmüş beğenmiş ve almıştım. Şimdi sanırım çellonun tellerine değmeye bile korkuyorum. Ve en kötüsü Fransa'ya gitme hayalim ışık hız [...]

    12. I have read all of P.J. Parrish's books about the P.I. Louis Kincaid and enjoyed them all. This one had a different main character,Matt Owens, a journalist chasing the killer of his little sister across France, England, and Scotland. By midway in the book I was bored silly and skimmed the rest just to have it done with. Maybe knowing who the killer was from the first was the problem or maybe I just didn't like the chase, but at the end all I can say is there was nothing thrilling about this thri [...]

    13. First time reading this sister duo who are known as P.J. Parrish. The book was on the "new shelf" at my local library and decided to give it a read. This novel is written with a new hero, taken them away from the Louis Kinkaid character which you may be more familiar with. This novel kept me riveted right from the beginning. The flow of the events ran smoothly all the way to the terrific ending. Look forward to other novels with our intrepid reporter Matt Owens.

    14. I started this book on a flight home three weeks ago. I got a third of it read when I arrived and had to put it aside because I had 3 library books to read that were due in a week. I really hated not finishing it, but when I went back the other day it didn't take me long to remember the great story.It contains all the things I really enjoy in a good thriller: good characters, serial killer, great plot and interesting locations!!!

    15. Killing Song is a great mystery set in Miami, London, and Paris - not just in above ground world of Paris, not just in the sewers below, but also in the mines that apparently exist below Paris. The mystery is well thought out, the characters interesting, and the plot, not just exciting, but also psychologically thoughtful. Novelist pair Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols come together in the form of PJ Parrish to write a terrific mystery and it is definitely worth reading!

    16. I grabbed this at the library on an impulse -- the 'tease' on the back cover caught my eye.For me, the book was just OK -- very easy to read, with an interesting dual point of view. But, I found the plot was too implausible -- too many 'quantum leaps' where the main character jumps to wild conclusions that turn out to be completely correct. I agree with a couple other reviews -- a good beach read, but not incredibly deep.

    17. I loved this book. Some of the parts in the tunnel were hard for me, because I am claustrophobic. This book grabs you from page 1 and doesn't let you go until the last page. I can see where Matt could have a series of his own. I liked going to Europe this weekend in this book and some of the scenes were written so clearly I felt like I was there.I am giving this 5 out of 5 stars and hope to see more with Matt Owens.

    18. This stand alone is exciting. Read it very quickly. Great setting. Lots of atmosphere. Nice twist at the end.

    19. Sürükleyici ve keyifliydi. Paris'in altındaki yeraltı tünellerini bilmiyordum. Bir çok bilgi kattı. Her kitap, farkettirmeden konusu dışında bilgi yağmurunu tutuyor insanı. Olağanüstü bir eser değildi ama nasıl demeliyim. Çerezlik :)

    20. Mi primera novela de misterio, me hizo descubrir lo mucho el mundo de misterio. Odie y ame el libro pero me tiene de por vida.

    21. THE KILLING SONG by P.J. Parrish is one of my favorite reads so far this year! It's a very compulsive read! I was driven to read page after page of breathtaking, heart pounding suspense to the point where I just couldn't tear myself away from it until I finished! I personally think that this book is the best one YET that the P.J. Parrish sisters have written to this day!The story starts out with Matt who is a Pulitzer Prize - nominated journalist that now spends more time lost drinking himself i [...]

    22. It was the killer and the setting that seduced me here. Killing Song's Paris is grand and romantic, artsy, old - and mysterious, what with its labyrinth of catacombs under its streets. The setting was so masterfully done I was *there*, ya know? And I loved traveling from Paris to England to Scotland. This book was like a trip. (For *FREE*! Hurrah!)Then there was Laurent - a bizarre, tortured soul who is so complexly troubled, I just couldn't drum up the hatred Matt, our protag, felt for him (des [...]

    26. wow this was FAR FETCHED!!!unlikely their other works which I rather enjoyed, this seemed like a sort of copy of Richard Montanari novels specially one of them where someone plays some instrument, it was so unremarkable that its name escapes me.everything in this novel is far fetched, from the poor american journalist's impulsive trip to Paris until one of the last scenes where he sits in a bar with catacomb dwellersme as in Montanari's works, both villains and even good guys would have to posse [...]

    28. This review first appeared on my blog: knittingandsundries/20A murderous cellist and women being murdered in similar ways in different countries - that is the impetus of this sometimes dark, always fascinating crime fiction read.Matt Owens ("Bear") is a reporter living in Miami when his "little" sister Mandy, 21 years old, comes to visit. They go to a club together, and as Mandy is having "just one more dance" on the dance floor, Bear looks away. When he looks back, his sister has disappeared.A [...]
