Dark Glass (Dominions I)

An assassin from the dark districts, a target in a perfect society. And secrets that could kill them both.

Killer-for-hire Rodin prides himself on his control. He trains hard. He keeps nobody close, has nothing anyone can use against him. He’s built his reputation, can pick and choose contracts.

Until now.

When others want to kill him, he’s forced to take a contract on a distinguished Councillor in the Dome, that idyllic, supposedly secure society beneath the glass. It’s a place where violence is unknown, where manners are everything. A place that will never accept Rodin.

So he must go undercover, be everything he isn’t. He must get close to the target without arousing suspicions.

But the target is protected. As enemies close in, pressure builds, and Rodin’s control starts to slip.

And if Rodin doesn’t remove his target, he’s a dead man.

Dark Glass is the start of Dominions, a series of dark Dystopian thrillers that are violent, intelligent and unexpected.

Meet TW Iain

Married, kids, job; the usual stuff. But there has to be more. Music, and books. Especially books. Fuel for the imagination, energy for the mind.
When I was younger, I’d go outside ‘to play’, but I’d take a book with me, find somewhere to sit, and read. I can recall holidays not through what happened, but through the books I read at the time.
But it’s never one-way. All those stories, all those ideas — they ferment. They build up, and they need a release.
TW Iain is the part of me that acts as a release valve, typing away, crafting tales to put out into the world. There are Dystopian thrillers (The Dominions series) and sci-fi horrors (Shadows). There’s also short stories, both in anthologies and on twiain.com.
It’s not enough, of course. Every story gives rise to more ideas that churn away, growing wings and demanding to be set free. It’s never-ending, this writing thing.
And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Gorilla Killer: A True Story of Betrayal, Brutality and Butchery (Ryan Green’s True Crime)

On 20th February 1926, landlady Clara Newman (60) opened her door to a potential tenant who enquired into the availability of one of her rooms. Despite his grim and bulky appearance, he introduced himself politely, in a soft-spoken voice whilst clutching a Bible in one of his large hands. She invited him in. The moment he stepped into her home, he lunged forwards, wrapping his over-sized fingers around her throat and forced her to the ground. She couldn’t scream. He had learned the dangers of a scream. She slowly slipped into darkness. Given what would follow, it was probably a kindness. The ‘Gorilla Killer’, Earle Nelson, roamed over 7,000 miles of North America undetected, whilst satisfying his deranged desires. During a span of almost two years, he choked the life out of more than twenty unsuspecting women, subjected their bodies to the most unspeakable acts, and seemingly enjoyed the process. The concept of Serial Killers were largely unknown to the North American public in the 1920s but the local authorities and press were fast becoming aware of the devastating and horrific reality that unfolded before their eyes. Nelson would eventually become the first real ‘superstar criminal’ who everyone had heard of and talked about. Before Bundy and BTK, there was Earle Nelson. Gorilla Killer is a chilling account of Earle Nelson, the first known American serial sex murderer. Ryan Green’s riveting narrative draws the reader into the real-live horror experienced by the victims and has all the elements of a classic thriller. CAUTION: This book contains descriptive accounts of abuse and violence. If you are especially sensitive to this material, it might be advisable not to read any further
