Publisher Comments:

“No one has ever done what I intend to do. Three wildly different victims. Three distinct locations. Three different deaths. All on the same day. Within hours of each other. Deaths that tumble together like dominoes. Each one falling against the next. Click. Click. Click.”

Three red-headed women—One, Two, and Three—do not know one another though they live only a few miles apart. Each is being hunted by a psychopath intent on committing three perfect murders, works of such artistic brilliance that they will be written about and studied in Universities for decades to come. The women know they have been marked for death—they just don’t know when it is to happen, or how, or by whom. Or why.

Redhead One is a fifty-one-year-old single doctor. Redhead Two, a thirty-three-year-old middle school teacher. Redhead Three is a seventeen-year-old prep school student. Their tormenter seems to be everywhere and know everything about them, able to orchestrate fear so excruciating as to be unbearable. He is the Big Bad Wolf, and he is determined to rewrite the ending of the Red Riding Hood fairy tale into a slaughter of the innocents

Review:

"Narrator Postel supplies a smooth, straightforward, if slightly unenergetic reading of Katzenbach's smartly plotted thriller. Three women of different ages and backgrounds have only two things in common: they all have red hair and each has received a mysterious letter in the mail informing them that they have been selected to die. The killer identifies himself only as the Big Bad Wolf, but is in fact a rather mundane novelist who is looking to revitalize his writing career — and the stalking and killing of the three redheads should supply him with enough dramatic fodder for a bestseller. But when the redheads connect with each other, it only goes to show that even the best laid plans of the badest wolf can take an unexpected twist. Postel has a polished melodic vocal quality that is easy to listen to. And she reads Karzenbach's prose in a professional, direct manner that certainly moves the story along at a good pace. However, her overall performance feels a bit languid in its execution — a little more vigor on this reader's part would have raised the thrill levels of this cleverly conceived novel. A Mysterious hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:
