Book Description
Indelibly scarred by childhood trauma, abuse
and distrust, the main character (Jamie Allen)
seeking refuge and solace, loses himself in
the capital city. Forced by circumstances to
grow up fast, he begins to build a new life
for himself, gaining confidence, although
still battling his inner demons. He lives a
solitary life until fate intervenes and a
chance meeting in a local bar suddenly turns
his life upside down. He is charmed by her
beauty and enthralled by her mystique. She
becomes an all consuming obsession. After
their brief but intimate liaison, the woman in
question (Nikki Chandler) is followed home and
strangled on her doorstep. When her body is
discovered it echoes the unsolved murders of
three other local women. Is he innocent or
does his mind hold a dark and terrible secret?
Will he discover the truth before his
tormented mind snaps completely?

From the Author
One for fans of psychological thrillers.
Think Val McDermid with a sprinkling of
gothic sensibility...

I awoke trembling and sweating, the sheets
soaking wet beneath me as my mind recalled the
visions from the nightmare that had violently
ripped me from my sleep. The recollections
were sadly all too vivid as I had been
fighting them all night, a battle I was
destined to lose.
Damn, twenty years on and still the memory
of those events would not fade. I felt the
maelstrom of reproach and morbid regrets as
every night seemed to rekindle old memories
that I wished to leave behind and to deny the
existence of.
Sometimes I found myself closing my eyes and
hiding away in the dark. I knew that there was
a lot to be ashamed of in my life, but I just
did not understand why these dark thoughts and
spectres from my past, kept invading my mind
of late, now almost on a nightly basis.

Sounds interesting-have heard it compared to Poppy Z. Brite's stuff, so will definitely give it a whirl.
