I'll start by simply agreeing with a lot of the previous reviews. The story is more complicated than in The Kult, the whole experiment side of things really interesting. And to a certain extent, yes, this Prosper Snow novel is better than the first one. Yet one can't ignore how important the first one was, and how Shaun has definitely made a really good job of writing this book in continuation with The Kult, in a way that the story wouldn't really feel the same if you didn't know where Prosper c ...more

Experimental Psychology, Nature or Nurture, Serial Killers, Thrills, Chills, Great Action Scenes, Twists and Turns, this book has it all and more...

Anti-hero and Lovable Bad Boy, Prosper Snow returns following on from The Kult in a new psychological thriller that flows along nicely and then about 3/4 of the way in, delivers such a stinger that beyond that stage it is simply impossible to put down... The subject matter draws from actual psychological experiments that have been careful

"He hoped he was still on the righteous side, but in all honesty, he couldn't be certain anymore". - Prosper Snow

That Prosper Snow would have such self doubt is perfectly understandable. After all, as an officer sworn to uphold the law it would naturally cause internal conflict to find yourself breaking it in the most extreme manner possible - murder. Yet that's precisely where Snow found himself in The Kult, the first book from author Shaun Jeffrey which featured the character. When

Nature and Nurture, Part II

I fell in love with the first book in this series: the faulty characters, the twisted plot, and the excellent pacing in ‘The Kult’ had me from chapter one. So, I dived into ‘Killers’ to read more about Prosper Snow and how the terrible events of ‘The Kult’ where going to affect him in this sequel. And I can honestly say that character development isn’t an issue here, as Snow certainly bears the scars and changes from a ‘simple mainstream cop’ into a more da

This is Prosper Snow's second outing and takes place about a year after the events of The Kult. Someone is indiscriminately killing people again and it is up to Prosper to get to the bottom of it. At each murder site he is thwarted and turned away by a government official. It soon becomes obvious that not all is as it seems. A bizarre experiment is taking place and Prosper needs to put a stop to it. To do that he must work from within and that means accepting a job offer from these mysterious pe ...more

This is a stand alone book, unlike some series where you HAVE to read the one before to know whats going on. I like that... But be sure to read the first one "The Kult" excelent book! 

You'll understand the man better...

Prosper Snow... What can I say, this is the second book in his series... 

In the first book he's just an ordinary man who gets caught up in some thing he can't seem to get out of, can't seem to stop or change how it'll end! 

Well... Of

Prosper Snow is back, in the second book in the series by Shaun Jeffrey.

Following on from The Kult, Prosper and his family are dealing with the aftermath of the Oracle, and he keeps getting thrown off cases with no explanation as to why it is happening. He comes across his fair share of surprises in this book!

While The Kult was brilliant, and i'm really looking forward to the film, I do think that the author has really outdone himself with this one. The underlying parts of the main

I downloaded this book as soon as I realised it had been released after reading "The Kult". I thought the first in the Prosper Snow series was gripping but Killers was even more un-put-down-able. The short chapters are great for keeping the story moving and keeping you interested, I couldn't believe how quickly I got through the book (more due to the nature of not being able to stop reading than the length). Shaun has a great abilty to lead you to think you know what is going to happen and then ...more

Prosper Snow is at it again and his past transgressions have caught up with him. He is back to his rogue self, recruiting a thief and Wolfe to help him, when a string of grisly murders draws him in to a case where an occult government agency conducts experiments on nature versus nurture. What compels people to kill? What is the benefit of knowing? Those experimented on kill because they are trained to and they know nothing else. With these made monsters loose in the world, no one is safe. A foll ...more

Great follow up to Shaun's previous novel, The Kult. Prosper Snow and his best friend Wolfe get caught in a 'nature or nurture'experiment run by a shadowy government department after one of their 'killers' escapes. Fast-paced thriller with plenty of gore!

This Snow is hot!


Finished it last evening and it was great. The Kult was fabulous and Killers managed to surpass it. I can't wait to read more about Prosper Snow but I must admit I'm a bit infatuated with Wolfe, too! Thanks so much, Shaun.

A serial killer on the loose, a government agency covering-up the murders and Propser Snow's dark secret isn't so secret anymore. Only a deal with the devil will reveal the truth.

Killers is Shaun Jeffrey's second Prosper Snow thriller. I read the first, The Kult, back in 2012.

The story starts with a serial killer much/>

This was silly, with tons of plot holes--I have a vague memory that was the case in the first book also. Jeffrey doesn't spend as much time fleshing out the characters in this one, particularly Williams and Brundle, leaving the climax to feel a little flat. There are many spelling/grammar/capitalization errors in the text, which is a distraction. Despite the flaws, it's still fairly engaging, especially for something that seems to be self-published. The body count is bloody and satisfying, if a ...more

Following on from the Kult, and living up to the first book in action, thrills, spills (blood and guts) and intelligent story line. It really was a fast moving book, and they way it was written makes it all visible. (Very vivid sometimes) Its quite easy to get hooked into the story, and a real page turner.

This was a good read. I enjoyed it and would maybe read more by this author. Some excellent plotting, though at times the characters were a little over the top for gritty realism. Nevertheless, not bad at all.

This is the second book in Shaun Jeffrey's 'Prosper Snow' series and I enjoyed the first book ('The Kult') so I've been looking forward to reading this next book. I'm pleased to say that I enjoyed reading it, it follows on well from the first book and the author writes dark very well.

On the face of it this is a detective story, Prosper Snow is investigating a series of savage murders and finds his investigation impeded by a secretive government branch. It's light on the procedural side of

Really enjoyed this book. You get to know a bit more of what makes Prosper tick, more of an insight into his personal family life.
Mutilated bodies start to turn up on Prospers patch, but every time he turns up to investigate a guy from a top secret branch of MI5 turns up to take over the investigation removing Prosper from the case, only to offer him a job as part of his team..!
As prosper starts to delve into the murders he uncovers the shocking truth of who and why the killer is lea

After finishing this I immediately checked to see whether there were any further "Prosper Snow" novels. Very thrilling read - where the previous novel in the series was a thriller with horror elements this one has more of the horror spice flavouring in the story. An excellent read but I would advise that readers start with "The Kult" in order to get the full picture on the story's main character and his friends. Highly recommended.

Shaun Jeffrey was brought up in a house in a cemetery, so it was only natural for his prose to stray towards the dark side when he started writing. He has had five novels published, The Kult, Killers, Evilution, Fangtooth and Deadfall, and one collection of short stories, Voyeurs of Death. He has also had over 40 short stories published in places such as Dark Discoveries and Cemetery Dance. His no ...more
