# FEMALE TED BUNDY MEETS TED BUNDY IN REAL TIME

Ted Bundy wasn’t the only serial killer in Seattle in the early 70’s as true crime weaves one of the world’s most evil murderers into true fiction with Sydney author Kanika Batra’s debut novel, HONEYTRAP introducing a female serial killer who will leave you sleepless in Seattle!

Honeytrap is a psychological thriller that intersects with historically accurate true crime. The anti-heroine by Maris Caldwell is a bisexual serial killer and hotel heiress who operates in Seattle in 1974, during the time of Ted Bundy’s reign of terror. They develop a relationship, and all events relating to Ted have been heavily researched and are precisely reported by the author who is an expert on all things Ted Bundy.

The controversial novel is so full of killings it may make your stomach turn. It definitely did that to some of the characters in the book which features multiple killings, slaughter and bloodshed of men , women, a child and even a dog. Honeytrap is not for the fainthearted due to the heinous nature of the crimes involved.  It’s far stronger than anything James Patterson, David Baldacci and Dan Brown could come up with in their most fanciful dreams.

Kanika Batra, who is a Ted Bundy expert, says “ I’ve worked on this novel for five years and have undertaken hundreds of hours of research into the mind, crimes and motives of Ted and I believe I can offer a new perspective to devout true crime fans everywhere. Ted Bundy has always drawn interest; a charismatic, handsome law student who managed to kill 35 women (or potentially more) in his spare time is unfathomable to people, and they to seek to understand him. There has been another surge of popularity as of late, particularly due to the movie “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” starring Zac Efron and the Ted Bundy Tapes on Netflix. I would like to offer these audiences the knowledge I have gained from reading every book, watching every documentary, speaking to the actual police officers that handled his case back in King County in 1974, connecting with friends and members of his family and listening to hours of conversations between Ted and Stephen Michaud/Hugh Aynesworth in a palatable and riveting manner.

Honeytrap will be released on Friday 13thth November, retails for $29.95 and is available now for pre order at www.booktopia.com.au
