Liar... Manipulator... Sadist... Killer?
A 'coming of age' psychological thriller that'll make your toes curl...
This, the final instalment of the Remorseless trilogy, is here. A gripping suspense story that's definitely the author's darkest yet - and quite possibly his best.
Definitely not for the faint-hearted. Contains disturbing imagery and some profanity. You have been warned...
When criminal profiler Doc Powers wakes to find a deadly message left at his country property, he and his friend Detective Inspector Jack Carver are sucked into a nightmare investigation involving a precocious teenager - a budding psychopath with violence running through his veins...
Can they stop him achieving his aim of celebrating his 'coming of age' - a spectacular finale involving gasoline and explosives? The lad's mother and grandmother - the victims of his ongoing campaign of psychological torment - are in serious jeopardy.
But so are Doc and Jack...
Find out the thrilling outcome in Gaslighting - the third 'stand alone' novel in this dark, gritty, British Crime Thriller trilogy.
Please note: This psychological suspense story contains spoilers so you are advised to read the award winning first book (Remorseless) to maximize enjoyment, although this is NOT essential.
From Reading Experience Blogspot June 2017:
'...nothing blew me away like the beta-read of the third part of Will Patching's Remorseless Trilogy... truly one of the best writers I've had the pleasure reading... his characters are real and three-dimensional who think, act and speak like real persons...
'...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... [This author] doesn't spare his flawed heroes.'
Like Remorseless and Mutilated, Gaslighting is a gripping read to really get your teeth into, with an intricate plot and complex characters. Plenty of suspense and intrigue for any lover of unsettling psychological thrillers. If you enjoy noir, or maybe love the Scandinavian 'dark-side', then this novel could be for you...
However, this tale will not suit those who like their thrills short and sweet, or anyone with a nervous disposition.
'Patching goes where other authors fear to tread…'
Gaslighting has elements of police procedural mixed in with a riveting tale of psychological suspense, all topped off with stunning thrills - an emotional roller-coaster ride.
NB. This is a full length novel of approximately 117,000 words.
The 'Remorseless' trilogy of unique British crime thrillers will take you deep into the minds of psychopathic criminals - including those of more tender years - and won't leave you untouched by the experience.
