Product description:
London and the South West of England are the hunting ground of a serial killer. The brutal killer hunts young men in their thirties, kills them and turns their bodies into macabre clock faces at each crime scene.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Webb investigates the series of murders with the help of Dr. Kirill Fedorov, a man who believes he can spot potential serial killer behaviour in children and cure it. Webb also persuades Luke Wind, the only British boy that Dr. Fedorov cured and treated like a son, to help him find the killer. Fedorov convinces Luke that he should still be able to understand a serial killer's mind, but when Luke looks into himself he begins to doubt that he has been cured after all, especially when the killings begin to look personal.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
Hopefully the e-readers will enjoy my unique take on the 'serial killer' genre, as there is a ‘cured’ serial killer in my book. I think there is plenty different in the book to keep the readers gripped and plenty of twists and turns.

Q: Why did you go indie?
It seems that only the famous or people with connections in the publishing industry stand any chance of getting published. The slush pile is always going to be the unknown writer's enemy. Luckily, and thanks to technology, we have been shown a bright, independent, light at the end of the tunnel.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
That's a good question. In the genre I'm writing in at the moment, I'd have to say Boris Starling, Thomas Harris, and Jeff Lindsay. Boris Starling got me started in this genre- well, I had already written a thriller, but when I read Messiah, I wanted my book to be as gripping. Thomas Harris, will always be a God. Jeff Lindsay- Dexter! What more do I have to say?
