The final book in the Marcus Kline trilogy,
published by Urbane Publications in September 2018
Courtroom Drama with a difference
I loved this psychological thriller for its short punchy chapters, the action is easy to follow and I enjoyed the interesting information about the brain and hypnotism.
Clever. A great read
Unique...Dark in parts...The story is set out brilliantly and clearly...It’s a court case like no other...I realise this is part of a Marcus Kline series but reads brilliantly as a standalone.
Incredibly well-writtenthriller with some great characters
I love court room thrillers and the research Chris must have put into this book is superb. It’s addictive and gripping...with some great characters, that will have you turning the pages into the night.
Katie's Book Cave
The time has come for Ethan Hall, serial killer and master hypnotist, to be tried in Crown Court. He has chosen to defend himself. For Mike Coopland QC, the Prosecuting Counsel, and Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jones, the arresting officer, the final conflict is about to begin.
And the result is far from certain.
Coopland’s case rests primarily on circumstantial evidence. Jones and his team still cannot account for all of Hall’s activities from six months earlier whilst he was avoiding capture. Worse still, the unanswered question remains:
How do you prevent a destructive master hypnotist from wreaking havoc in a Crown Court trial?
For Marcus Kline, the world’s leading authority on communication and influence, and his wife photographer Anne-Marie Wells, the devastation Ethan Hall has brought into their lives is about to reach new, unimaginable, heights. Memories, secrets and fear will threaten to tear them apart.
Meanwhile, a new wave of murders is being recorded and shared on social media, inciting ever-more extreme behaviour. Support for the violence grows. The very fabric of society seems threatened. Is Ethan Hall in any way responsible? And, if so, how can he possibly be beaten?
Marcus Kline’s story ends – like everyone else’s – with Faith.
