Marcus was special. He'd always known it. Even at the age of six when he'd decided to kill his father. His privileged background should have produced a doctor, an academic, perhaps a diplomat. Instead, he killed people for fun. Donna needs all her battling qualities as she attempts to rescue the missing girl, but is the real danger closer to home? Mummy's Boy is the first novel by the award winning author of "Alpha Male" and "Murder in August." Critical acclaim for Mummy's Boy: "An accomplished and challenging work of great imagination. Exceptionally well written...as fine as anything that I have encountered in a crime novel." Golgonooza. "A chilling yet believable murder tale, prompting comparisons with Val McDermid and Mark Billingham. Exceptionally well paced in its construction and delivery...stylish, atmospheric and written at just the right pitch. The ability to accurately convey both setting and mood is one of the strengths of this novel. " Booksellers review. Jared Conway does everything with such style, his descriptive passages are masterpieces of the written word....the dialogue leaps from the page...a masterpiece of the genre by a writer at the height of his powers." Amazon. "An edgy thriller which moves at a furious yet extremely well controlled pace. His charcterisation is superb - his main protagonist, a female private eye, is sharp and sassy, other characters are extremly well drawn and the dialogue is slick and snappy...combines the macabre "noire" elements associated with the genre with dry and very black humour."
