The greater the evil, the more deadly the game…

When Emma awakens in total darkness, she is aware of her nakedness. Injuries. A bed not her own. A blindingly bright light suddenly pierces the blackness and a disembodied male voice calls her “Venus”. Venus – the goddess of love, beauty, sex and desire. He says she is “Venus Six”. What does this predator want from her? Can she outwit the masked man who demands to be called “Master”? Or will he be looking for Venus Seven?

Detective Inspector Gravel finds himself floundering when a local nineteen-year-old university student is abducted and imprisoned by a sadistic serial killer who has already tortured and killed at least five young women.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Brilliant. With this tense, harrowing, edge of your seat tale John Nicholl triumphs again. Very well written, this is story telling at its honest, unflinching best.


Ingenious and blood-curdling. The story is very gripping and tense. A clever original plot, great characters, non-stop tension and a very satisfying ending.


Wow, wow, wow! I love a good thriller, especially when it has tones of mystery, horror and a serial killer or two thrown in. This book starts off with a hint of a creepy peeper and quickly moved into the stage of abduction and investigations. You are thrown straight in, rushing to to try and understand a world where a safe haven becomes your worst nightmare.


Stalking, abduction and a serial killer combined to present an excellent tension filled story. A lovely style, it’s always good to read a writer who can write. A good contrast between alternate chapters of the unfamiliar world of the captor and the real-life feel of the policing world; the latter with the sardonic and tongue in cheek humour of policing.


A serial killer chiller not to be missed! Another brilliant book from the pen of John Nicholl. Highly recommended reading.
