The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time meets Silence of the Lambs

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 physical and eBook format in November 2019.

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 from The Creative Wordshop
