Three years ago, working vice for the NYPD, Dan Champion uncovered a sex slavery ring run by a kingpin known only as the Fat Woman. Obsessed with bringing her down, Champion infiltrated a world of sexual obsession and perversity. He broke the case, but the case also broke him. He started taking drugs and soon began to form hallucinations … a dead child prowling the streets of New York … a beautiful woman named Samantha who would have given him the love he always wanted—if she’d only been real. Now Champion is a small town detective, chasing burglars and juvenile delinquents, hanging out at the local tavern where he is romancing a waitress. The ghosts and hallucinations are finally behind him as he begins to rebuild his life. Then one night Champion is called to examine the body of a woman who has washed ashore. Yet when he looks at her face, he sees that it’s Samantha, the woman he dreamed about long ago … a woman who doesn’t exist. Suddenly, Champion is haunted again, only this time it’s by a team of expert killers who want to make sure he never finds the truth: the truth about the dead child who wanders through his imagination; the truth about the lover who inhabits his dreams; and the truth about a killer who has been on the run—in the wind—for a lifetime. The ghosts of the dead are all around him, and Champion has to find out who murdered them, fast, or he could become one of them himself.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The most original American novelist of crime and suspense since Cornell Woolrich.” Stephen King, praise for the author
“After reading his latest, A Killer in the Wind I came away convinced that Klavan is worthy to be mentioned with Keith Ablow, Jonathan Kellerman, Andrew Vachss, James Patterson, and even Stephen King.” Huntington News
“This taut, frightening psychological thriller from Edgar winner Klavan charts the efforts of Dan Champion, a deputy in Tyler, NY, to find a criminal who may not exist…The edgy story complements a lead character whose fragile memory can’t always separate the real from the imaginary.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Evokes the gritty classics of Cornell Woolrich and Jim Thompson while spinning its own brand of hard-boiled psychological suspense. Among its other distinctions, this book gives us a detective who is tough enough to outlast the most bizarre encounters but isn’t too tough to be gripped with fear.” Kirkus Reviews
