About the book
Sold toFinland: Minerva
A young man is hit by a bus on a quiet winter’s night. The shock runs through the peaceful Gothenburg suburb of Torslanda, and journalist Jennifer Sundin is sent out by the local paper to report. A traumatized witness tells her how the man was lying naked in the middle of the road – despite the freezing cold – and that the bus had no way of stopping.
Jennifer starts digging into the dead man’s past and is horrified by the senseless violence that seems to be spreading among young people. When a woman disappears after a night out on the town, Jennifer is drawn into the case and unexpectedly ends up in the absolute center of the drama. The collaboration with the police becomes complicated and the tracks lead in opposite directions. Someone is lying, but who?
Meanwhile, Jennifer tries to deal with everyday life and the anxiety that is building inside her. It becomes more and more difficult to write about cases when they seep all the way into her own home. The clock is ticking, and the stakes are high – soon a matter of life or death.
Night Prey is an intense, well-written detective story about the fearless freelance journalist Jennifer Sundin. It is the standalone sequel to The Only One Who Knows, which was named one of the best debuts of last year and received great appraise from readers and reviewers alike.
