“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” meets “Red Dragon”
Scarred, my first book, is a crime thriller set in the heart of Sydney focusing on two independently operating serial killers and the homicide detective hunting them both. Scarred was written over a period of five months by hand while I was in prison. Due to the context and setting of the book I believe it will be particularly appealing to residents of Sydney, people with or familiar with high-functioning autism and anyone who enjoys a psychological thriller.
Warning: High levels of physical and sexual violence.
Scarred is published by Tenth Street Press and is due for release in both paperback and Kindle format on November 28, 2019. Scarred is distributed by Ingram and will be available for order in most bookstores. You can currently pre-order both the Kindle and paperback versions directly from several sellers, including Amazon Australia and Amazon US. A full list of online sellers can be found at Booko, just click the flag in the top right corner and select whichever country you’re ordering from.
What the critics say:
“Damien Linnane’s Scarred is a poignant thriller that speaks to the addictiveness of vengeance. Jason Ennis emerges from an abominable childhood into an adulthood that is light on human connection. In striving for justice, he becomes a monster. It’s a powerful debut, both page-turner and tragic exploration of the mistakes the well-meaning make when they don’t know how to feel.” – Edward Wright, book reviewer for The Australian
