    If you have not yet read the first book in the series then you must, both are excellent book and the first book will give you good background to the sequel that will make for better reading.Dr. Maria Martinez has Aspergers Syndrome and we met her in the first book whilst she was in prison with all sorts of things going on around her. She is no longer in prison but she is still no longer safe as "The Project" still wants things from her, and relentlessly pursue her through the pages of this novel. What I love about Nikki Owen as an author is that she really spent a lot of time studying women with Aspergers to make her character authentic. I am a reviewer and a woman who has Aspergers so I was thrilled to read that Maria was not stereotyped into too many boxes. She is a super likeable character!The pace of the book is really intense and every turn taken brings new dangers for Maria, she has a few allies along the way but it's hard sometimes to know who your true allies are and there are some seriously brilliant twists in the plot and characters in this book that will surprise the reader. I know I had my jaw hanging open a number of times trying to process what was going on. Maria goes through some tough stuff but she is a tough cookie and can kick and fight her way out of nearly any situation, she is super smart too and that brain comes in handing when on the run from The Project. If you've been eager to know more about what The Project want from Maria you will get some more of the answers you want in this sequel.A fast pace, gritty plot and plenty of reveals and twists alongside one hell of an ending made The Killing Files a top-notch 5 star read. It was well worth the wait! I felt so many emotions for Maria in this book, Nikki Owen certainly packs a lot into Maria's journey in this one. Brilliant reading!Thanks so much to the publisher for an ARC of this novel. All opinions are my own and are totally unbiased.

    Firstly, let me caution you. This is not a intended to be a standalone book. To get the maximum benefit, I recommend that you should read Subject 375 first (previously titled "The Spider in the Corner of the Room")But oh my, this book. The narrative style of the author means that as a reader, I was constantly off balance. Flicking back and forth between the recent past and the present, the slow release of information which was fed through ensured that I was never fully confident of who her captor was. And even when that tidbit was confirmed, the confusion about the reality of Maria's situation continued. Mistrust and suspicion abound.The real genius about this story is that the truth is a stretch to believe. The potential alternatives are far more plausible. The betrayal is breathtaking in its extent.I can't wait to read the conclusion.I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    The Spider in the Corner of the Room was the first in this series that will be a trilogy, and introduced us the the world of plastic surgeon and Aspergers sufferer Dr Maria Martinez and "The Project". It was a brilliant read, a book I throughly enjoyed, so I was really looking forward to reading the sequel "The Killing Files". If you haven't read the first part in this series then I highly recommend doing so as otherwise this novel will be totally confusing to you, as the back story from the first is an intricate part of this second book.Having left off at the end of the first book with Maria escaping prison and fleeing from The Project with the help of some friends, we pick up here with here living in Spain, isolated from most of civilisation in the middle of nowhere. This suits Maria and her condition down to the ground as her head remains clear with no distraction, as she researches online to try and find any more clues as to who exactly The Project are and what they may want with her. She still struggles to recollect what is fact and what is fiction in her memories and also, as always uncovers new memories as she delves further into her journals.Of course The Project eventually catch up with her and she has to flee her home, arranging to meet up with old friends, the governor of the prison she was in and her fathers old friend - Balthus, her prison friend - Patricia and a new character Chris, a hacker and contact that Balthus directs Maria to make contact with in Spain until himself and Patricia arrive.What we have unfold is a fantastically whirlwind paced chase/conspiracy thriller that is a fitting sequel to the first book. Maria again is a hugely interesting and empathetic central character as she struggles to keep ahead of and unravel who The Project are and what they want with her. There are many twists and turns throughout as you, as the reader, are unsure who you can and cannot trust. The addition of the new character Chris works really well as Maria takes a bit of a shine to him. He is essential as a character from a practical point of view, for his hacking skills to move the plot along but also works as device to open up more layers of the central character of Maria and it works really well.It's a fantastical story, perhaps a little too fantastical for some in places but the characters are so well written and the story so well told that I had no issue with suspending disbelief. The book, like the first, picks you up and carries you along for the ride and it is one almighty enjoyable ride. Easily as enjoyable as the first, I am really looking forward to the third in the series.I would like to thank the publisher Harlequin and NetGalley for providing me with a copy in return for an honest and unbiased review.
