Our narrator serial killer randomly selects his female victims, killing without compunction, dismembers the bodies and buries the parts. Sometimes he incarcerates them in a purpose-built cage bolted to the floor of his basement and then releases them into woods where he can enjoy hunting them down. Expect the worst … but no, this is not a serial killer thriller as such, although lots of killing does go on, but a story of two damaged people finding love! Told in the first person by the nameless killer whose façade is that of a regular guy, this is his tale. Extraordinary. A most impressive debut where witty observations and a dark humour have you almost rooting for him to evade detection. An excellent first entry into the world of crime fiction.
He lives on your street, in a nice house with a tidy garden. He shops at your local supermarket. He drives beside you, waving to let you into the lane ahead of him. He also has an elaborate cage in a secret basement under his garage. The food he's carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he's holding there against her will - one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her. This is how it's been for a long time. It's normal...and it works. Perfectly. But this time it's different...Dark, twisted and compelling, this is the most exciting and original thriller of the year.

Cameron has written a painfully funny story that's littered with corpses, both intentional and unintentional, and proves that sometimes spotting the craziest person on the block isn't quite as easy as it seems' - Kirkus Reviews
'Blackly humorous' - Publishers Weekly
