A dark and disturbing glimpse into the mind of a sociopath and the apparently impossible attempt by a young woman to expose his crimes.

Marcus was special. He'd always known it. Even at the age of six when he'd decided to kill his father. His privileged background should have produced a doctor, an academic, perhaps a diplomat. Instead, he killed people for fun.

Donna O'Prey is the most junior member of a small private security firm. A routine search for a missing teenage girl escalates into something much more serious when a ransom demand is received. Donna becomes convinced that Marcus is responsible for the abduction. Eleven years previously, while still a child, Marcus had been convicted of the brutal murder of two young children, but a Home Office review board has now sanctioned his release.

Donna needs all her battling qualities as she attempts to rescue the missing girl, but how will she cope when her own safety is threatened?

You have a wonderful eye for detail, without drifting into the temptation to overwrite. It's a fine balance and other r... view book

I'm unable to add to my previous comment for some reason so will have to add as a separate comment - I'd question the 'literary fiction' tag, 'popular culture', very much so, but the literary tag may work against you for a wider readership. An engaging story, good to see something a little bit diffe... view book

Interesting opening sentence! Strong pitches that work very well and an intriguing premise here, I'm certainly interested enough to read more. Best of luck. Jared. view book
