Maniac by Pattrick Whittaker

Maniac has found the way to commit the perfect murder - over and over again...

Meet Detective Inspector Harry Nyman, the world’s most reluctant policeman. He is an accomplished jazz musician who’d rather be playing music than solving crimes.

His plans to take time off to write an opera are thrown into disarray by a series of murders, each committed by a different person.

The killers all claim to have been possessed by a malignant spirit who calls himself Maniac.

At first, Harry does not believe such nonsense. But as the body count rises, he realises that not only is Maniac real, he has an agenda: to destroy Harry and his family.

This is a novel in the vein of American writers such as Dean Koontz and Stephen King with lashings of British detective fiction (Morse, Rebus, Marples) thrown into the mix. It is complete at 89,000 words.

About me: I am winner of the British Fantasy Society's Short Story Competition 2009. And I have made a number of short films, a couple of which have won awards. My website at showcases much of my work.

Thank you for your time,

Patrick Whittaker
