Poignant and incredibly powerful,
Ness not only entertains but leaves
us deep in thought.
Influence kills...Influence is the greatest force on earth. Influence equals power, the power to affect people and events. The most powerful people alive have the greatest influence. And they can use it for good or bad. Marcus Kline is the world's leading authority on communication and influence. He can tell what you are thinking. He can see inside you. He can step inside your mind. Yet when a series of murder victims bear the horrific hallmarks of an intelligent and remorseless serial killer, Detective Inspector Peter Jones turns to Marcus for help - and everything changes!
Murder and intrigues of the mind dominate in Influence, the new novel from author Chris Parker. An unnervingly deep and thought provoking psychological thriller that goes beyond the pale, he has created a highly original and absorbing read. Written with an acerbic pen and a meticulous eye for detail his characters are deftly drawn, eschewing the genre tendency towards stoic stereotypes to deliver flawed real world personas. Capturing moments that ring so perfectly true, you simply have to stop and admire Parker's pursuit of authenticity and flawless execution of plot. The action is measured, the twists served with perfect timing, it has all the elements readers expect from the best in genre.
A refreshingly original and thought provoking debut, Influence will surely win Chris Parker a host of passionate followers and bodes well for his next novel. Recommended without reservation.
