A Hunger Within

A novel by

A young, single woman becomes the fourth victim to be executed in a manner that has all the hallmarks of a professional hitman's work.

DI Frank Ryan of the SCU - Special Crimes Unit - heads up the investigation.
With no trace evidence, no apparent connection between the victims, and the fact that these are not sexually motivated murders, Ryan knows that he and his squad are searching for a meticulous and organised repeat killer.

With gangland connections including Ray 'The Torch' Savino, and Sergei Gorchev, the Russian Mafia's top man in London, the sociopathic predator takes life for money, and also for personal gratification.

Ryan and his new boss, divorced DCI Julie Brannigan ask Dr. David Wilde, a criminal psychologist, to consult, develop a profile with critical offender characteristics, and suggest any proactive strategies they might employ to draw the perpetrator out.

The killer is a computer expert, able to shed his identity and become someone else if he feels at risk. No one who is against him is safe. He is paranoid, consumed by hatred and becomes obsessed with exacting revenge on all those determined to bring his reign of terror to an end.

With his feelings for Julie escalating, Ryan has to try and juggle his career, the current case, and the prospect of having an affair with a senior officer.
As more people die at the hands of the seemingly out of control stone killer, Ryan is determined to bring him to book or, if necessary, mete out his own particular brand of rough justice

Ryan will come to know that his adversary is more dangerous than a wounded lion; a man who will use any means to stay at liberty, even targeting anyone close to Ryan in a bid to make him back off.
