THE MURDER CODE (A Remi Laurent FBI Suspense Thriller) is book #2 in a new series by mystery and suspense author Ava Strong, which begins with THE DEATH CODE (Book #1).

FBI Special Agent Daniel Walker, 40, known for his ability to hunt killers, his street-smarts, and his disobedience, is singled out from the Behavioral Analysis Unit and assigned to the FBI’s new Antiquities unit. The unit, formed to hunt down priceless relics in the global world of antiquities, has no idea how to enter the mind of a murderer.

Remi Laurent, 34, brilliant history professor at Georgetown, is the world’s leading expert in obscure historic artifacts. Shocked when the FBI asks for her help to find a killer, she finds herself reluctantly partnered with this rude American FBI agent. Special Agent Walker and Remi Laurent are an unlikely duo, with his ability to enter killers’ minds and her unparalleled scholarship, the only thing they have in common, their determination to decode the clues and stop a killer.

A priceless, historic painting is stolen from a museum in Washington, D.C., and a dead body is found along with it. When the trail leads back to Paris and demands a historian’s expertise, FBI Special Agent Walker realizes he has no choice but to ask Remi Laurent for her help again. Together, they need to travel to the Louvre, visit the scene of the first murder, decode the message in the stolen paintings, and stop the killer before he strikes again.

A global manhunt ensues in a race against time, as Remi races to understand the clues, and quickly learns that this killer is more diabolical than anything she could have ever imagined.

An unputdownable crime thriller featuring an unlikely partnership between a jaded FBI agent and a brilliant historian, the REMI LAURENT series is a riveting mystery, grounded in history, and packed with suspense and revelations that will leave you continuously in shock, and flipping pages late into the night.

Books #3-#6 in the series—THE MALICE CODE, THE VENGEANCE CODE, THE DECEPTION CODE, and THE SEDUCTION CODE—are also available.

    Good plot. Realistic characters. An enjoyable read.

    The editing needs to be improved. There’s a difference between the words “unphased” and “unfazed”. That sort of mistake is unacceptable and happened more than once. Also, missing words which should have been in a sentence. If the author can’t be bothered to correct these problems, I won’t waste my time reading the books.

    I’ve enjoyed reading this series, but I find the lack of proof reading really distracting.
