More About the Author

Originally from Lowestoft in Suffolk, I grew up loving the beach and swimming in all weathers. I then lived in Liverpool for eight years and had an absolute ball. Great city, great people. I left because I was partying far too much and getting nothing else done. So I moved to London where money doesn't go far, had to clean up my act if I was going to survive. Couldn't afford a pint in the pub so sat down and got some writing done finally. I read a self-help book called The Little Saboteur, which changed me from an occasional writer to a regular one. For a long time I wrote short stories and have around 50 hanging around in my computer. I also wrote a novel which is staying under my bed forever, nightmare to write and nightmare to read too. Finally I found myself writing crime books after the realisation that I mostly read crime books so why not. Having established a writing routine, I've moved back to the sea for some fresh air and fresh ideas.

I like writing engrossing fiction that lets readers explore the mind of a serial killer in the safety of their own homes

I have to confess I found the violence of the first scenes of this book a bit disturbing, gratuitous even. But as I read on I realised that they were a very apt expression of the disturbed mind of this very cleverly conceived serial killer. A very enjoyable read.

The beginning of this novel is grisly, told in the first person by the murderer, a psychopathic torturer and killer. He is bent upon a mission only he understands.

Inspector McDonald draws a case initially thought to be that of a missing elderly woman. It is much more than that. It is the tip of the iceberg. McDonald is after a psychopathic monster, which he will soon realize. He makes a terible mistake, one he should not have made, a potentially deadly mistake. Death seems imminent. He begins hearing voices: good and evil.

This is the story of the hunt for a madman, a killing machine. Whenever the police get close, he eludes them. I must say that there are instances that suggest police incompetence. Although explained by the author, it may be a bit much. But it moves the story along nicely in an exciting way. The author switches between first and third person by chapter. In this case, it is very effective. This is a fast-paced entertainment, enjoy. Reviewed by the author of The Children's Story, About Good and Evil.

I love a good police procedural, and I do so wish this had been one. The plot was good, the characters were good. Unfortunately, the writing was so sophomoric that I could not even take it seriously. I kept wishing for a red pen to start marking, but knew it would be hopeless, because it just got worse and worse. An editor might help, but I suspect a course in fiction writing might be a better idea.

This book started out very strong. It got a little slow during the middle but ended up with an extremely thrilling ending.
