Mark Yarwood’s crime thrillers have been praised for the lack of a permanent main detective character, instead he uses various members of the Special Crime Group as the leads. When I saw the blurb for The Amount of Evil:
Influential businessmen are being slaughtered across London; each victim is given a local anaesthetic before witnessing his own body being cut to pieces. The decapitated head is then stuck on a pole as warning that revenge is being reaped. But revenge for what? And who will be next?
DCI Jairus is put in charge of the case; a resourceful detective, living with guilt after killing a suspect in self-defence. He soon discovers the murders are being committed by a sadistic psychopath and a delusional and violent ex-con, but Jairus himself hides a dark secret in his lock-up, something no one can learn the truth about.
The troubled DCI finds himself drawn into a world of satanic rituals, secret societies and deadly revenge. And as Jairus investigates, his gut tells him that someone else is orchestrating the murders.
`From day one of having Johnny edit my work, I knew I was onto a winner. Before working with Johnny, I found the editing process a complete nightmare; after John commented on my prose, pointing out what worked, as well as those things that weakened the narrative, I now have a closer understanding of my own style and that enables me to produce better writing. Johnny has improved and sharpened my books to no end! I highly recommend him.`
