A Murderous Mind

Five relentless years. Not a single kill.

John has constructed a facade of normalcy. From his esteemed corner office with skyline views, to the loving adoration of his wife, daughter, father, and sister, he appears to have it all.

But the gruesome cravings have only been dormant, not extinct. Now, the sinister voice inside his head is resurfacing.

Detective Tremock stumbles upon the newest corpse and an icy dread snakes through him. The signature is undeniable. This cold case has never really been forgotten, lying in wait like a predator in the shadows. To many, Tremock’s dedication might seem obsessive. His marriage has crumbled, his retirement elusive, his future prospects diminishing – all a consequence of his fixation on the murders. He always knew the monster would return. And now, it has.

John’s already tenuous grip on reality is shattering. With Tremock inching ever closer to the horrifying truth, he stands on the precipice of losing everything. His wife, his children, his life, all hang in the balance. Yet, the voice persists, a relentless echo, “Kill them, John. Kill them all…”

You can’t cage evil. You have to kill it.

Brand’s genius once held the promise of revolutionizing science and medicine. But darkness took hold, leading him down a path of gruesome experiments and a quest to play God.

Years ago, Brand’s terror swept the nation, but the FBI acted swiftly, and the world believed the nightmare was over as Brand was caged.

They were wrong.

He’s back and leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.

Allison is faster but Brand is faster. Smart, but Brand is smarter.

And now, he’s targeting her family.

Praise for The Adulterer’s Handbook: A Novel

Wow. This book is fantastic! I had absolutely no idea when I started reading that I’d be taken on this journey. The writing is great.”

“I really enjoyed this book. I’m not sure how to categorize it — a thriller or just good fiction?Regardless, I highly recommend it! I didn’t want to put it down!”

The tale weaves its way down a winding path so beautifully that, before you know it, you’re at this bizarre place in the story where every character is not who you thought they were!”

“I was drawn to this novel because I was interested to see how the author handled the subject of infidelity, purely from a male perspective. He’s done an excellent job.”

“The humour and author’s style are reminiscent of David Nicholls.”

“There is much to admire in this entertaining read. The dialogue is natural, the editing is well done and the narrative flows. All in all, a good debut novel and I feel sure we’ll see more from this promising new writer. I recommend you give it a try.”

“The book just becomes fun. It’s like a puzzle that you’re trying to figure out.”

“The internal dialogue is so hilarious that I literally LOL’d a few times.”

Praise for The Adulterer Series:

You guys just have to read this! It has really messed with my mind.

It blew me away! Couldn’t put it down.

Brilliantly written, flows wonderfully and keeps you turning the page. Read it, you won’t be disappointed.

This author has a really twisted mind. Think Stephen King writing a psychological romance thriller.

This is my favourite thriller read of the year so far. It’s unique.

Sam Anthony has created a character as engaging and page-turning as the actual psychological thriller plot.

One of the best books I’ve read in 2019 and I can’t WAIT for the next instalment.

Not my usual read … but the ending … Wow!

A very well written and well thought out novel, with real, flawed, and totally human characters.

I thought I knew where the story was going, but it was much more powerful than I had anticipated. A great read.

Sam Anthony is an AMAZING storyteller! It takes a ton of talent for an author to create a main character like Lee who does such despicable things and makes such terrible choices and make him into someone likeable who you want to root for.

Sexy, witty and entertaining. A must read!!

The story takes some thrilling unexpected twists and ends with the mother of all cliffhangers. I’m highly anticipating the sequel.
