Prepare yourself for a serial killer who will get inside your head. Literally.

Tom's life is not what it once was. His marriage to the beautiful Nora is on the rocks and he now sees his two young children only on her say so. His best friend - and best man - Neil has moved away to California to teach neurology. He has one successful book - on human psychology - but he now wiles away the time teaching bored grad students.

But that all changes when Neil comes back into his life. For it seems that his best friend was no teacher - he was working for the US government, cracking the minds of suspected terrorists. But now it is Neil himself that has cracked and gone AWOL - what's more he has left behind evidence that he has been employing his unique skills on civilians - obsessed with the idea that he can control the human brain.

Thus begins a terrifying sequence of events as Neil starts to kidnap and mutilate people with a connection to Tom. But it is only when he gets near his ultimate target does he reveal the full horror of his plan...

About two or three chapters in I thought this was going to be one of the best thrillers I've ever read. But with all the shitty info dumping of The Argument the book became a rather infuriating read. Read full review

Awesome book but pretty gruesome. If your an atheist you will love this book as it takes emotions and faith down to it's primal core. At times the book can get slow but then you are ripped from your seat by another unthinkable anti human murder. I would not have predicted the events in this one. Read full review
