Indelibly scarred by childhood trauma and neglect, Karl Connor attempted to flee the dark shadows of his young life, the horrors that he had experienced, and the inner demons that continued to haunt him. As the past and present collide the brutal reality is that the long slide into violence has already begun, but who could have imagined that his desire for perceived vengeance would have such terrifying results. Young women are being murdered in London suburbs and there is seemingly nothing to connect them to one another, let alone the killer whose charming manner hides a warped and sick mind.Detective Inspector Ross is determined to hunt the killer down, jeopardising his career in the process, as he becomes increasingly alienated and obsessed with finding the murderer. It is a difficult time for him and his depleted team as they find themselves caught up in Karl's deadly game of ruthless vendetta and vengeful murders. Soon their lives begin to run on a parallel, which leaves one of his team in mortal danger.
From the Publisher
'Dominion' is the follow up to 'Redemption', Wayne's debut novel, which was nominated for both The Guardian First Book Award & The McKitterick Prize.
From the Author
I feel that you will find this to be a tight, tension-building tale that provides both psychological insight as well as a thought-provoking read.
For fans of Bret Easton Ellis/Val McDermid with a sprinkling of Poppy Z. Brite's Gothic sensibilities...
