The designer-murders of American Psycho meets the inventions of The Wasp Factory.

A psychological thriller, set in Spain and south-east Wales, on obsession and the far-reaching evils of perfectionism. Fifteen year old Tim’s world changes forever when he is attacked by a gang of bullies. As an adult, devoting himself to revenge, he is repellently creative, a fine craftsman in everything he does, including murder. Constantly aware of the aesthetics of the world around him, he turns revenge into a fine art. But can he create the perfect killing machine, and how much practice does he need before he achieves his goal?

"Impressive debut novel... devised by an original mind and told in tight, well-crafted prose... That Hughes still holds the reader’s attention until the final shattering revelation is a tribute to his skill."
Anita Jardine, Daily Express

“A subtly daring format and an easy, hypnotic style, at once tense and uncommon.”
John Ballam
