Sidney Knight’s Debut Novel

Alex Novel

Unexpected Genius. Unforgettable Love. Unthinkable Evil.

Alex Novel

“Excellent, intelligent rule breaker of the genre.”

On 1st June, 2010, an unspeakable act of murder was committed—a crime so evil that its perpetrator, Alex Merton, could never be forgotten. He left behind not just bloody fingerprints staining the city, but also debate, confusion, and question upon question as to why he did it.

How could a man in possession of such genius—a man so deeply in love—unleash such horror on the living? How could a man so seemingly invisible in the community become the face of a nation’s nightmares? And who was the mystery somebody who knew of his murderous blueprints way beforehand, yet decided to do nothing until it was too late?

This is the story of Alex Merton—the truth behind the mystery, the man, the monster…

Amazon Review
This had me hooked. Unpredictable, fast pace, characters you didn’t know whether to love or hate, and a fulfilling sense that true love still exists in this world … I would be very surprised if the author hadn’t researched into the criminal mind in some detail as what is written seems tremendously vivid and plausible. The climactic ending is fantastic, ending far from how I had imagined … The only thing I am unhappy about is that this author has no other titles for me to dive into yet!
Goodreads Review
… My emotions were all over the place reading this! The author lets you into the secret world of his characters brilliantly. No one is as they seem. This is a tale of man to monster with a serving of romance and mystery on the side, which contrasts well with the darker tones of the book. Awesome read if you fancy trying a fusion of crime drama with a touching love story.
Amazon Review
… a refreshing read, startlingly, and sometimes disturbingly real … It’s great to follow the story through the eyes of the would be killer for a change – as opposed to through the sane eyes of a cliché detective as is the case with most run of the mill crime novels I usually pick up … Strong themes of true identity and acceptance run throughout, adding a strong back bone to the story also.
