The 17th century French mathematician and philosopher, Blaise Pascal asked a question about the belief in the existence of God. This question is known as Pascal's Wager. "God is, or he is not," asserted Pascal. "But to which side shall we incline?"

Pascal went on to say that even though reasoning can’t provide the answer to the question, we are still better off choosing to live our life as if we believe.

After all, if it turns out God doesn't exist, the worst that can happen is that we might miss out on some earthly pleasures we may have otherwise engaged in. But, if we choose to live as if God doesn't exist and we're wrong, then the consequences could be somewhat hellish.

Imagine an ordinary man. He’s your neighbour and mine. To everyone he appears to be your average middle-aged guy, keeping very much to himself, quiet, friendly but private. But all is not what it appears to be. Deep down, he harbours a malice born out of a troubled childhood. He shares his secrets and thoughts with no one but his Journal. After all, with whom could you share the darkest secret of murder? Not one, but many, many murders spanning more than 30 years. And he hasn’t been caught or even close to it. Why? Because to Tom Harrop, they were all justified actions.

Detective Sergeant Jack Swan has put the pieces together and he believes that he’s close to getting his man. It all adds up. All the pieces suddenly fit together and he’s about to swoop on Britain’s biggest ever serial killer. Bigger, much, much bigger. The Only problem is that Tom Harrop is more than one step ahead of him.

Tom doesn’t regard himself as a serial killer or even a murderer. Over the years, all he has sought is justice and vengeance and fulfilled his desire to cleanse the world of those that don’t deserve to be in it.

Tom doesn’t believe in God. Nor does he believe in Hell

Whatever you do, don’t piss him off.

This novel gets deep into the mind of a very disturbed character going right into the roots and nerve centre of a psychopathic killer.

ONLY THE FIRST FOUR CHAPTERS ARE PUBLISHED FOR VERY WELCOME COMMENTS
