Title: Song of the Psychopath
Author: Mark Tilbury
Genre: Dark Thriller
Blurb: A year after going missing from home, Tommy Scarlett is found unconscious in an isolated country road. He has a fractured skull, broken wrist, and numerous other injuries. Recovering in hospital, Tommy has no recollection of the past. He doesn’t even recognize his own family.
After returning home, Tommy suffers severe headaches and acute depression. Desperate to help him, his father puts him into the care of a private therapist. But Tommy soon learns his troubles are far from over.
As the past is slowly unlocked, it becomes increasingly clear that Tommy has suffered an ordeal so horrendous it beggars belief. And those responsible are determined to silence him by any means possible.
Can Tommy find out what really happened to him and bring those responsible to justice?
Or will the past finally catch up with him and finish him off for good?
As many of you will know, I’ve followed Mark since his first book, The Revelation Room. He has been a diehard supporter of my writing as well. With Song of the Psychopath, we again journey down the rabbit hole of the more darker side of humankind. I admired how Tilbury utilized flashbacks with Tommy and how his personality visibly changed when experiencing one. I will openly admit this is not my favorite of Tilbury’s novels, not because it isn’t well-written, or the emotional impact is palpable, though. I will say, he’s certainly earned his nickname of ‘Twisted Tilbury.’ As always, I will await the next book by him to see just what he comes up with. Fair warning, this author is not for the faint of heart.
