The Secret to Being Frank
Evil beyond Insanity
by Joe Leslie

This time he was not disappointed. As she passed the box, adrenaline kicked in, he could smell the salt from the sweat underneath his armpits. A humming, drowning noise coming from inside the walls of the café lasted for several minutes; John gulped and held his breath as the object of his first project walked passed her destiny. She was less than six, no five feet away from her fate. The next time would be her last, the next time would be his first.

Definitely dark, mean and thought-provoking, The Secret to Being Frank has that extra middle finger of Hannibal Lector right on the pulse of the reader’s guilty pleasure. This rollercoaster of a novel has ignored all the ground rules as it careers down the track towards the evil beyond insanity. In-depth character profiling enables the reader to enter the dark tunnel of the psychotic brain and believe. Authentic and nerve-fraying writing graphically depicts dark, harrowing scenes and spine-chilling moments.

The scream machine is launched into mid-air in Wales during the middle of the 20th century, when an inexperienced, belligerent detective Frank Macleod encounters Samuel John, a mission-orientated serial killer. Even with the hereditary gift of damashealladh, second sight, Macleod, headstrong, unorthodox and carrying his own psychological baggage, appears totally out of his depth against John. Can he stop this death drive and prevent the body count from spiralling out of control? Will he take up the challenge, and can he control his relentless sexual appetite?

Look out for the banked curve, the unusual death-defying twists and conflict in the plot. Hold onto your sanity or you could be the next victim. The Secret to Being Frank has been inspired by novels that balance a fine line between a psychological thriller and a horror, including those by Jo Nesbo, SJ Bolton and Karin Fossum.
