Behind the normal door of a normal house, in a normal street, two men are slowly driving each other insane. One of them is a psychopath.
The father: Mr Todd is at his wits’ end. He’s been robbed of his job as a tax inspector and is now stuck at home… with him. Frustrated. Lonely. Angry. Really angry.
The son: Adrian has no job, no friends. He is at home all day, obsessively chopping vegetables and tap-tap-tapping on his computer. And he’s getting worse, disappearing for hours at a time, sneaking off to who-knows-where?
The unholy spirit: in the safety of suburbia, one man has developed a taste for killing. And he’ll kill again.
Iain Maitland is the author of the thriller Sweet William (2017) as well as two non-fiction books on mental health: Dear Michael, Love Dad (2016) and Out of the Madhouse (2018). An ambassador for Stem4, the teenage mental health charity, Iain also speaks on mental health issues in the workplace.
‘Truly scary, a fabulous dive into the mind of a classic, self-justifying psychopath. A fantastic book.’ Barbara Nadel
‘From page one Iain Maitland hurls you through the secret underground tunnels of an insane mind bent on destruction. Cleverly conceived, what begins as quite touching drives relentlessly onwards into furious criminality. Mr Todd’s Reckoning is phenomenally dark and utterly compelling.’ Chris Dolan
“Iain Maitland’s knowledge and expertise come across on every page. Taut, darkly humorous and heartbreaking all at the same time, with an unforgettable narrator, Sweet William packs a real emotional punch.” Lisa Gray, Daily Record
