Synopsis

Jez is adulterous husband to Maxine, devoted father to Jamie, promiscuous lover, university professor, pro-vice-chancellor for research – and a serial killer aiming to get to the top by any means necessary.

His passion for murder parallels his love of music, and he matches each kill with its own special theme song to enhance the experience as he works towards assembling his very own top forty greatest hits.

When the vice-chancellor of lowly ranked Francis Drake University begins to sexually pester Jez’s mistress Bella, it accelerates his plans for domination. But will he get there?

Review by Stacey

The Psychopath was certainly a different read. We meet Jez who is a serial killer just after he has killed his latest victim and is cleaning up. Jez most certainly is a psychopath. He loves himself, thinks everyone loves him, and is insanely jealous. He believes what he is doing is right and that he is never wrong.

The story moves back and forth in time, beginning before he started killing, though the thoughts were definitely there.

Jez is the focus of the book and most certainly a horrible, nasty character to read about, but then it would be unrealistic to have a book from the point of view of a serial killer and have them being all-loving and sweet.

The pacing was a little slow and the back and forth through time isn’t my ideal kind of read, however, the plot was decent, although I wasn’t a fan of the ending. Some of the language and descriptions of especially the female characters made me shudder but again would a psychopath think anything other about females?

This is an in-depth look into the mind of a fictional killer. If you love serial killer books then you would probably love this one.
