Henry Peters hasn’t got much to boast about. He’s not showy, has average intelligence, and he’s definitely not a big-noter. Living in Christchurch suburbia with his wife, teaching overseas students in a private training establishment, Henry likes his students and he likes them dead, once he’s done. He used to head the science department. Not now. He sought and missed out on a promotion to deputy CEO. He feels his wife’s disappointment in him. Then a 7.1 earthquake strikes the city damaging his old work premises. Suddenly, Henry’s in the light and people need his help. But no one knows his secret and, more importantly, he needs to make sure they stay in the dark.
A chilling short story about a serial killer that has you looking sideways at your neighbor!
About the Author
Mark McGinn lives in Christchurch, NZ with his family. When he’s not writing crime novels, he’s enjoying sport, reading other crime writers and, with U2 in his ear, trying to minimise the excesses of red wine and chocolate on an exercycle that looks like a dark age instrument of torture. Now writing his fifth novel, he has previously written two Sasha Stace legal thrillers, a third is with his editor and a mystery. A short story, Perfect Cover, has been published by Fairfax Media.
During a lengthy career in the NZ court system, Mark had the privilege of seeing some of the finest lawyers and judges in action in many notable criminal jury trials. That experience and his subsequent background in psychological assessment has enriched and driven his crime writing.
