Ever wondered what goes on inside the head of a stone-cold killer?
This dark, disturbing trilogy will thrust you deep into the minds of some of the most evil criminal psychopaths you would never wish to meet...
'Had I read Will Patching’s novels while still a serving officer I'm sure his insights into the workings of their minds would have helped me understand the motives and actions of these people.'
Rick A, a 30-year veteran detective
'One of the best I've read for a while and the psychology was spot on.'
Steve E, a retired police officer
These three gripping killer thrillers follow the fortunes of criminal profiler, Doctor Colin Powers, and his colleague-cum-pal, Detective Inspector Jack Carver of London's Metropolitan Police, as they tackle these devious, vicious and highly manipulative individuals.
But be warned: these chilling, twisted thrillers are written in deep point of view - including that of violent killers - and contain imagery some readers find disturbing. Certain characters use profanity too.
As one reader said:
'Patching goes where other authors fear to tread...'
In this spine-tingling thriller, criminal profiler Doc Powers learns a twisted killer he helped put away is up for parole. Can Doc keep this violent psychopath behind bars — while hanging on to his own sanity?
Remorseless has been awarded the Ebook Skill Mystery & Thriller of the Year, 2017, and has been described as 'British crime writing at its best!'
Doc’s lover's missing, Jack’s hunting a sadistic killer his team call ‘The Surgeon’, and Doc has to deal with another raging psychopath from his past...
Mutilated led Scott M, a serving police detective, to comment that reading the novel was 'just like riding with my crew'. Another avid reader said, 'If you thought Remorseless was dark then just wait till you read this! Gritty and graphic hardly describe this taut thriller, it was quite simply unputdownable...'
Billy Leech - the young lad who suffered in Remorseless – is now a precocious teen. He's also a budding psychopath with revenge in mind, and Doc's life is in danger – again.
Gaslighting received rave reviews on launch including this from the Reading Experience book blog:
'Suspense glueing me to the pages, heart beating faster than normal, empathizing with the characters, fearing for them - I knew there wouldn't be an easy happy ending...'
These killer tales encompass police procedural, psychological suspense, elements of murder mystery, and out-and-out balls-to-the-wall thrills. They are not a quick read but full-length novels, averaging over 120,000 words each, containing complex characters and intricate plots.
NB. If you are looking for a light-hearted mystery, or need a trigger warning for any reason, then you should probably look elsewhere!
A roller-coaster ride for any fan of pulp noir, hard-boiled British detective novels, and dark psycho thrillers. Contains the gritty realism of authors like Chris Carter, Stuart MacBride and Mo Hayder, combined with the wide-ranging imagination of Stephen King and Lee Child.
Professionals in both law enforcement and psychotherapy have complimented the author on the veracity of his villainous characters - they are 'Seriously scary!' Are you ready and willing to get inside the mind of a violent killer?
