You always remember the first time. Isn't that what they say about sex? How much more true is it of murder . . .
Up till now, the only serial killers Tony Hill had encountered were behind bars. This one's different - this one's on the loose.
In the northern town of Bradfield four men have been found mutilated and tortured. Fear grips the city; no man feels safe. Clinical psychologist Tony Hill is brought in to profile the killer. A man with more than enough sexual problems of his own, Tony himself becomes the unsuspecting target in a battle of wits and wills where he has to use every ounce of his professional skill and personal nerve to survive.
A tense, brilliantly written psychological thriller, 'The Mermaids Singing' explores the tormented mind of a serial killer unlike any the world of fiction has ever seen.
