Review - Profile K by Helen Fields

Profile K by Helen Fields
Publisher: Avon Books UK
Release date: 25 April 2024
Back cover blurb: He’s going to kill you. He just doesn’t know it yet. Midnight Jones is an analyst trained to understand the human mind. But everything changes when, in the course of her work, she discovers Profile K’s file – because K stands for killer, and she knows that someone more dangerous than she could have ever imagined walks among them. Midnight knows what Profile K is capable of before he even commits his first crime. But as the news rolls with the brutal murder of a local woman, no one believes what she tells them: that he is capable of so much worse. Profile K will kill again – and, terrifyingly, Midnight realises that the moment she found his file was the moment she became his next target. Because Profile K is coming for Midnight – and the only way to escape with her life is to find him before he finds her… The million-copy bestseller is back with a dark, terrifying journey into the mind of a psychopath that will keep you riveted until the very last page.

What would you do if your employer was putting your life in danger? It's something that shouldn't ever happen, right?

But let's be honest, not all employers are as ethical as we would like, or care about their employees as much as they would have you believe from their external marketing campaigns...

Necto is a highly sought after company, that everyone wants to work for. Amongst many other projects, Necto is responsible for data profiling for different types of clients. There are many different types of profiles returned, except Profile K. 

'Profile K' is a profile that doesn't exist, or so Necto tell their employees. For 'K' stands for Killer.

Midnight Jones has a job as a data analyst that most people would kill for. But she has long questioned the ethics of the company that she works for. Her work for Necto involves profiling potential students for university applications, or so they tell her.

When Midnight stumbles across a 'Profile K' she takes it to her boss, thinking that she's doing the right thing. When he doesn't want to take any action, she takes it to his boss, not caring about the consequences, she needs to make sure that they know what is happening.

Midnight isn't expecting the reaction she gets, but she is glad that Necto appear to be taking it seriously. That is until shortly after, when Necto decide to have a restructure, earning Midnight a promotion, but taking her away from the Profile.

She is certain that the company is trying to hide something, but she doesn't know what, or just how much danger she is in, until she's in too deep.

This is a fast paced thriller of a novel that I absolutely loved. Something very different, and very clever. Highly recommended. 

Profile K is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
