An Englishman living in Texas, Dominic is a prosecutor by day, a musician by night. He's also a psychopath, though his plan is to hide that fact and look as normal as possible in hopes of paying off his debts and becoming a working musician in Austin's club scene. But one lousy day his world unravels: demoted at work, kicked out of the club for stealing another musician's song, he meets a beautiful woman in a lime green dress—one who persuades him to enlist a couple of friends and steal a van full of cash. Nothing goes as planned, of course, and Dominic has to decide whether to stick by his partners or give in to his true nature.
"This noirish twisty tale will appeal to those who enjoy Jeff Lindsay's Dexter series, Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, and [Mark] Pryor's own Sherlockian international thriller series starring Hugo Marston."—Booklist (starred review)
