KillerseBook - 2011
Guess who's back? A sequel two years in the making... First there was Serial... Acclaimed thriller writers Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn pitted their skills against each other in a psychotic game of serial murder. Crouch wrote about Lucy, a hitchhiker who killed drivers. Kilborn wrote about Donaldson, a driver who killed hitchhikers. Then they brought their characters together and tried to slaughter one another on the page. Serial has been downloaded over 350,000 times. The film rights have been optioned, and it is currently available as an ebook, in print in various collections, and forthcoming in audio. Now comes Killers... At the end of Serial, Donaldson and Lucy didn't die. When they each wake up in a hospital, under arrest for their crimes and guarded by the police, each burns with a single, overwhelming desire: To escape and finish what they started. That's going to be difficult with the deputies posted outside their hospital rooms and their life-threatening injuries, but these killers are hell-bent on finding a way. Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, Killers takes the collaborative literary experiment begun in Serial to the next level. Crouch wrote the first part. Kilborn wrote the second, and then, unaware of each other's opening section, they wrote the third part together in a Google Doc where they could simultaneously write in real time. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win. At 18,500 words, Killers is a full-length novella, almost three times the length of Serial. This ebook contains Killers, a Q&A with Kilborn and Crouch, author bibliographies, and excerpts of Crouch's Break You, and Kilborn's, Konrath's and Crouch's Serial Uncut.
