Stark Contrasts

By Peter Carroll

Crime & mystery, Thriller | Paperback, eBook


DI Adam Stark is a cop from a small, Scottish town working in the biggest of all English cities – London. He’s been seconded to a specialist murder squad, but he’s not convinced the rat-race suits him. In the heart of London, a concerned citizen is taking action: doing something about those everyday irritants that serve to increase the stresses of city life. Spitting out chewing gum, using mobiles in restaurants, barging onto Tube trains, tailgating, and blasting out music on public transport, all incur a heavy price for the transgressors. As punishments escalate in severity and the press make a champion of this anti-hero, Detective Inspector Adam Stark is desperately trying to make sense of what's going on. Random, unconnected victims, excessive retribution, red herrings, kidnap, mutilation, mistaken identity, gangsters, revenge and murder. Things are getting totally out of hand. Stark needs to nail this sociopath with a social conscience, but the case is so bizarre, it might just be running away from him. May 2013 thriller of the month at e-thriller.com.

Peter is a Scottish person who's nearer fifty than forty now and has no idea how that happened! He's been married for a long time and has one daughter. When finances and time permit, he travels the world in search of birds and other wildlife and is a committed conservationist. As a self-taught bassist, saying he's a musician may be stretching it, but he has a go now and again. Literary influences include Christopher Brookmyre, Stephen King and Irvine Welsh, so expect bad language, violence, black humour and significantly fewer adverbs than most...oh...
