A tense, disturbing British Crime Thriller full of suspense, intriguing twists and a double figure bodycount... The first of a trilogy featuring the main characters.
Criminal profiler Doc Powers tries to unravel the truth about a psychopathic potential parolee in time to prevent him wreaking bloody revenge on those he blames for his incarceration - including Doc himself...
From the back cover of the paperback version of Remorseless:
Peter Leech is a cunning, devious killer, brutalized by half a lifetime in prison for the vicious murder of his parents. Now he’s up for parole and, one way or another, he wants out.
He's driven by obsessive lust for Judy Finch, a beautiful parole officer who spurned his advances, and his thirst for revenge on those he blames for his conviction.
His nemesis, Doc Powers, the forensic psychiatrist who assessed his mental health for trial, is now on the panel reviewing Leech’s parole application. But Doc fears for his own sanity. His feelings of guilt over his wife’s death and his terrible experiences as a criminal profiler threaten to overwhelm him. Hallucinations haunt Doc as he struggles to convince his colleagues that Leech is a dangerous unreformed psychopath.
A blossoming relationship with Judy helps Doc heal – emotionally and professionally – but he soon discovers he’s ill-prepared for Leech’s re-entry into his life...
