A wounded and psychologically scarred returned SAS hero becomes a sociopathic serial killer while he hunts down the one true love of his life.
Paul ‘Tank’ Williams suffered a horrific childhood at the hands of his sadistic father and alcoholic, clingy mother. He escaped to join the Army where he exceled and became a decorated SAS war hero in Iraq and Afghanistan.
On leave, he meets and marries the one and only true love of his life, but after being near fatally injured in a bomb blast during an operation where everything went wrong, he is returned back to Australia mentally and physically wounded. When his wife leaves him due to his fits of irrational rage and jealousy he tracks her across the country to Perth on a ‘mission’ to hunt her down and kill her. However, he discovers the victim was not Amanda, but someone who resembled her. He kills again and again until he tracks her to a large suburban shopping center where he believes she works.
A huge task force, led by Detective Inspector Dillon Bradley, has been set up to stop the man nicknamed ‘The Ripper’ by the press. After a media conference Williams decides to buy time and plans a diversion which will have catastrophic consequences for Bradley. The killer knows the wounds he received in Afghanistan will eventually kill him and he is determined to finish his mission at all costs before they do.
About Stephen B. King
It only took me sixty years to achieve overnight success and publish my first novel, so my advice to anyone is: don’t let anyone tell you are too old, or young, to fat or thin, too ugly or whatever to achieve your goals in life.
I’ve been a rock guitarist, I’ve written poems and songs, short stories and have more than a few books in the bottom drawer of the dresser that were just too awful to see the light of day.
Eventually I stopped fighting off groupies and gave rock music away; one of the many who didn’t ‘make it’ but had a lot of fun trying. For the last thirty odd years I’ve been a sales manager for a few larger car dealerships so have met many, many different types of people which has benefited me in hopefully creating characters who the reader not only feels for, but fears for.
I live in the beautiful city of Perth in Australia.
