Some Predators are Male

Neil Pensom lived alone and had no close relationships. He was careful not to make enemies and yet someone seemed intent on driving him insane by creating bizarre situations around him. He knew he needed help to fight his unkown persecutor but was unsure whether to go to the police, a lawyer or a private detective. In the end he chose a detective, John Samson.

'I think someone is trying to destroy me mentally, and I want to find out who and why.'

'I see,'
said Samson, but he didn't. Mental Murder sounded symptomatic of paranoia and was a matter for a doctor qualified in psychological medicine, not a humble private detective.

Pensom had brought with him a written account of the fantastic events which he alleges have befallen him, the attempt at 'mental murder'. Samson reads this document which intrigues him and also calls for the purest form of deduction. If the document is true what involuntary clues does it contain which might lead to the source of the persecution of an ordinary man? And what could be the motivation behind an apparently inexplicable series of events?

This is the problem the author sets for his reader and there is a solution, itself strange and convincing.

Miles Tripp's imagination and craftsmanship are at their best in this absorbing mystery novel.
