An Evil Mind

by Chris Carter
A freak accident in rural Wyoming leads the Sheriff's Department to arrest a man for a possible double homicide but further investigations suggest a much more horrifying discovery, a serial killer who has been kidnapping, torturing and mutilating victims all over the USA for at least twenty-five years. The suspect claims he is a pawn in a huge labyrinth of lies and deception, can he be believed? The case is immediately handed over to the FBI but this time they're forced to ask for outside help. Ex-criminal behaviour psychologist and lead Detective with the Ultra Violent Crime Unit of the LAPD, Robert Hunter, is asked to run a series of interviews with the apprehended man. These interviews begin to reveal terrifying secrets that no one could've foreseen, including the real identity of a killer so elusive that no one, not even the FBI, had any idea he existed... until now.

Other books worth a mention this week:

The Children Act

by Ian McEwan

Fiona Maye is a leading High Court judge, presiding over cases in the family court. She is renowned for her fierce intelligence, exactitude and sensitivity. But her professional success belies private sorrow and domestic strife. There is the lingering regret of her childlessness, and now, her marriage of thirty years is in crisis. At the same time, she is called on to try an urgent case: for religious reasons, a beautiful seventeen-year-old boy, Adam, is refusing the medical treatment that could save his life, and his devout parents share his wishes. Time is running out. Should the secular court overrule sincerely held faith? In the course of reaching a decision Fiona visits Adam in hospital - an encounter which stirs long-buried feelings in her and powerful new emotions in the boy. Her judgment has momentous consequences for them both.

The Way You Look Tonight

by Richard Madeley

When she was 16 Stella learnt the truth about her father, how handsome, charming James turned out to be a cold-blooded, psychotic extortionist, racketeer and killer. Knowing this she decides to study psychology and the criminal mind and to further her education in America. In the spring of 1962 she flies to Boston and becomes someone of huge fascination and on every invitation list. Then comes an invitation to the home of the Kennedys. She quickly becomes part of the inner Kennedy circle as they party through the hot summer nights. Brothers, JFK and Bobby, make their moves on her but she firmly, charmingly, repels them. Further south, on the Florida Keys, a killer is on the loose. The case, unsolved, begins to rock America, and with her specialist knowledge of psychopaths, Stella is co-opted by the police investigation and prepares to fly south...
