Signature Kill

Book 4, Frank Behr - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Taut and edgy, Signature Kill is a riveting exploration of a killer next door—a tour de force from acclaimed author David Levien.

The quiet of the Indianapolis night is broken when an unidentifiable body is found in a local park, deliberately arranged in such a way that police know it’s not a random crime. Across the city, former cop Frank Behr, down on his luck and virtually broke, takes on a no-win case to locate a desperate mother’s wayward daughter who’s been missing for months. Behr has few friends left on the police force, but as he wades into the world of small-time prostitution from which the daughter disappeared, he comes to believe the two cases are related.
     When another body is found, it becomes clear Indianapolis has a serial killer on its streets . . . an untraceable predator who, Behr surmises, lives behind the chilling veil of a perfectly normal life. Behr’s pursuit threatens to become entangled in the official police investigation, and will lead him to a dark place—and ultimately to a devastating decision from which he will not be able to turn back.
     Signature Kill is a masterly novel, in which one man’s obsession with justice faces off against a killer’s all-consuming obsession with perfection.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 19, 2015 – In Levien's solid fourth Frank Behr novel (after 2011's Thirteen Million Dollar Pop), the Indianapolis, Ind., PI can't resist going after the $100,000 reward offered by widow Kerry Gibbons for finding her grown daughter, Kendra, whose disappearance has been advertised on billboards. Behr, a former cop, chases down routine leads without much to show for it. He later connects with Indianapolis police detective Gary Breslau, who's investigating the murder and dismemberment of an unidentified young woman. Digging through case files and getting some help from a profiler and a crime-scene photographer, Behr finds a startling number of similar dismemberment crimes. Kendra fits the mold of those victims. While Behr hunts the sadistic killer, the killer continues to stalk, torture, and dismember more women. Behr sets a trap that only serves to anger the fiend. Behr is a complex and compelling sleuth, though readers should be prepared for some gruesome murder scenes.
