I was excited to see the third book in the Powers and Carver series was published. It was actually difficult to read for me , and I read the first part of this book in stops and starts. Once the motivations of Billy were established, though, the novel slipped into a higher gear and I sailed through the last two-thirds of the book in a single day. Billy Leech is a psychopath, and believes he is superior to everyone. It is scary to understand that characters in the book believe they are in control of the situation when young Billy is actually two or three steps ahead of them.
Knowing what could happen to characters when a psychopath walks unimpeded among them keeps the tension high from the beginning to the end. This book is different than the first two offerings. This technique by the author spills over into the chapters featuring Carver and Powers, allowing us to follow along as they work to find the evidence to bring the murderer to justice. As usual, Mr. Patching brings the book to a nail-biting conclusion, and one is not entirely sure of how the story will turn out until the last pages.
When I say gritty, that would include the crimes, the thought processes of the murderers, and the language that is used by the characters. To Mr. Friend Reviews.

Nov 24, Judith Sentyz rated it it was amazing. I don't know which one I liked best. The combination of a forensic psychiatrist and a detective works very well. His psychopaths were very intriguing. In the first story, I thought for sure I spotted a typo until I read a little bit further.
Then I realized that Josh's hekilopter was no typo. It was just how a young one would say that word. I loved it. It made me really giggle every time I saw it. As I am typing this, I am still laughing. Great job, Mr. Look forward to reading more books. Oct 06, Bev rated it it was amazing Shelves: own-it , have-read. If you like dark psychopaths those who need to think like them to catch them, then this trio of books is for you. Not for the faint of heart, graphic and dirty, but hard to put down! If you like books that really get "into the minds of some terrible people" these are for you.
I voluntarily reviewed ARC of these books. Mar 06, Chariss Walker rated it really liked it Shelves: british-crime , crime , dark-fiction , thriller. This is a trilogy of dark crime fiction thrillers If you'd like a glimpse into the mind of a psychopath, this is the book s for you. Will Patching tells the story like he knows it well. Sometimes I wonder whether he identifies more with Doc Powers or Carver. Good read for those who love British detective crime.

My very first review was 5 stars: I was expecting this book to be good. I wasn't disappointed. It's good, a very good read all round, far superior to the vast majority of airport novels and the like which adorn the bookshop shelves.
Well researched and a story well told. It starts at a brisk pace and speeds as it progresses, good old fashioned story-telling at it's very best.

I am now in my sixties and the clock is ticking - consequently I am a grumpy old man and have little time for also-rans.
This is not an also ran - I repeat - it's right up there with the very best. My wife also read this book. It is rare that we both find a book which we both like and are sorry to have finished but Remorseless filled the bill for both of us. Read it. You won't be disappointed If you enjoy dark and gruesome stories depicting intriguing psychopaths you need to put Remorseless on your book list!
Having been incarcerated for half of his life for savagely killing his parents, Peter Leech is coming up for parole. Judy Finch is appointed to interview and assess Peter prior to his parole hearing. Peter becomes obsessed with this recently divorced mother of a young son.

Upon his release, he has two objectives: revenge against those who put him behind bars for a crime he is adamant he did not commit and connect with his new love, Judy. Convinced that Peter is an unreformed psychopath, Doc Powers, the forensic psychiatrist who assessed Peter just after the killings, is fighting his own demons to assist the police to apprehend the remorseless and rather uninhibited killer whose out on a crime spree around London.
Remorseless was a terrific book about characters who are plagued by guilt and those who don't feel any. Great psychological insight, brilliant writing, well plotted and with complex characters. I was hooked from the start and will definitely put the sequel on my TBR list. Thanks to the author and to Maxine at Booklover Catlady Publicity for my copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is a book of a deep psychological look into the criminal mind and trying to figure out his next step. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and interested enough that you do not want to put it down. I recommend this book to anyone who likes dark, twisted stories.
What does that say about me? May 20, Alayne Emmett rated it really liked it. I found it slow and I already guessed how the story was going.
It was gritty and sometimes quite disturbing. Aug 04, Jacob Warring Eytle rated it it was amazing.
My previous experiences with free books from Amazon hasn't been great. One long train journey, I finished my previous book and so I thought I'd give Remorseless a shot. Being interested in mental health, sociopathy and psychopathy and knowing a bit about it, and having had personal experiences around the subject, I was worried that Remorseless would be a cheap, inaccurate thriller with no real character development and a predictable plot.
Boy, oh boy was I wrong! From the get-go, Will's masterfully crafted book hooked me in - 3 hours later, I almost missed my stop off the train! An incredible piece of writing, with each character being fleshed out and made absolutely real and relatable. The visceral description of Leech's piercing green eyes is brilliant - the intensity of such people was certainly not missed by the author.
My favourite scene was probably Judy's first encounter with Leech in the interview. A brilliant perspective from both sides, with Leech being absolutely certain in what to anyone else would be a very different interpretation. Or maybe when Doc goes home and just breaks down in front of Judy. A touching example of how we can appear strong and well on the outside, but have turmoil destroying the inside. My favourite character? A fantastically crafted, "computer brained" psychopath, he was more intimidating than Peter.
The meticulous planning and execution of his attacks to the extent that he could easily get away with it was a perfect contrast to Peter's brutish thugism. I am now a chapter in to The Hack, and eagerly awaiting the next thrill with Doc Powers and co. I'll definitely be less sceptical of Amazon's suggestions now too! Dec 15, Sam Dean rated it it was amazing.
This is a hardcore novel that pulls no punches. Real gritty Brit crime writing. A complex story with some fascinating characters developed along the way. It is not your run of the mill thriller — in fact it starts out as a psychological suspense novel, develops into a murder mystery and concludes as an out and out banging thriller! The conflict revolves around a threesome: the protagonist a forensic psychologist who is having a very tough time mentally , his potential love interest, a parol Wow! The conflict revolves around a threesome: the protagonist a forensic psychologist who is having a very tough time mentally , his potential love interest, a parole officer, and the amazing bad guy - a brilliantly drawn psycho who becomes obsessed with her while he's inside prison.
An interesting subplot involves the ex-husband, expanding on the theme of guilt that runs right through this cracking read. This was a another used paperback I found in a beach bar while on holiday, along with Deaver's The Bone Collector. Enjoyed this unexpected gem as much as I did re-reading that all time classic. You'll love this if: You enjoy fine writing, in depth characterization, and plenty of thrills and shocks, with a few unexpected twists thrown in. This is a story of both. A tale of twisted minds, psychopathic planning and dark moods.
Looking back is not always the best thing to do-it can be cathartic to some.. Different people have different minds and here we see both at their best and worst. A man wanting to look forward but haunted and taunted by looking over his shoulder.
Books by Will Patching / author
A woman looking forward and finding what was past has swung around to potentially block the future. Another man taking past actions and making them part of his and everyone in his wake's future too A brilliantly written piece of work that gets into the deep and dark minds of psychopaths along with a detective story with unexpected twists and turns.
You think you see where this is going Brilliantly written, well researched, fantastic plot, depth of characters and an excellent ending my big must have! The next book I understand is due Xmas this is one reader who is in the queue. Nov 03, J. Peter Leech spent eighteen years of his life in prison for the murder of his parents. Although, he claimed his innocence, no one seems to believe him. He believes it is his brother who is guilty of the murders and intends to prove it.
When he is released on parole, he plans to pay everyone back who framed him for the murder of his parents. This book started out very slow and I found myself, walking away from it and coming back, hoping that my brain would somehow reengage into the story. The book Peter Leech spent eighteen years of his life in prison for the murder of his parents. The writing is very good and my opinion is just that mine. My rating 3. I don't know if you have to be a little insane yourself to love this book.
It is hard and cruel not only because of the graphic descriptions of the crimes but because of the insight we get in Leech's and Doc's mind. The first a remorseless psychopath who doesn't know guilt, the latter nearly losing his mind over guilt. This well-written intelligent story won't leave you untouched. You'll start looking around for the psychopaths in your life. They might not be murderers but they sure have a "hole I don't know if you have to be a little insane yourself to love this book.
They might not be murderers but they sure have a "hole in their psyche" as Will Patching puts it. I need to thank Maxine and Will Patching for this thrilling read in exchange for an honest review. Pulp fiction An absolutely terrible book. Total over the top violence. Poor character portrayal, coupled with bad dialogue. Way too obvious plot line.
Disappointed by the whole thing. Sep 29, Susan Hampson rated it it was amazing. Although this book may not show as a sale, I have actually bought it through Amazon as a trilogy but feel that each book should have its own review. This novel is right up there with my other 'rather twisted reads' collection. The ones that make you edgy even before you get in bed and turn off the lights, so a huge compliment to the author, Will Patching, who is new to me because not many make it up there. A good book to me isn't the walk home when I finish work listening to a book at 1 am in the Although this book may not show as a sale, I have actually bought it through Amazon as a trilogy but feel that each book should have its own review.
A good book to me isn't the walk home when I finish work listening to a book at 1 am in the morning, it is hesitating to actually go inside when I get there, that's a good book! I loved meeting Peter Leech, a real complexed character that didn't quite see the world as someone normal does. After serving 18 years in prison for the murder of his parents, he had established himself pretty early on as 'don't frigging mess with me unless you want to live celibate forever,' kind of guy.
He knew how to play the system and knew how to play the rookie parole officer, Judy Finch, that came to interview him but his twisted mind made everything she said into 'I want you'. Leech had found his Little Birdie. Now I am not that many chapters in and I am thinking this is going to be a bit of a heart racer. It was time to bring out the Statins because it wasn't just his blood pressure rising! Doc Power the forensic psychiatrist had helped put him away and was now a bit of an advisory to Finch. I really took to Doc straightaway a rather damaged bloke himself that kept blanking out because of issues he needed to deal with in his life.
When Leech gets his parole, the smelly stuff hits the fan. Leech is on a mission to deal with his past before tracking down his future. Yep in his mind everything is going to come up rosy. This is an outstanding start to a series. The characters are fascinating from all sides of the law which keeps the story at an hi-octane level through out. One thing was for sure Leech was straight in there working to his plan from day one. But that meant that there simply wasn't a book mark place at any point as each chapter brought something gob smacking to the story, whether in present day or from the past.
Doc was conducting his own investigating and tracking down as much of the past as he was the present, both which would come spectacularly together. An absolute cracking read I am biting at the bit wanting to get into the second book of this series. I persevered to the end with this but it was a hell of a slog!! It seemed like it's taken me forever I found it quite needlessly excessive with the violence. This author has a nasty imagination for sure. However, there are also so many punctuation errors it wore me down.
So, altogether, it really wasn't a very pleasurable reading experience, I have to say. He misses heaps of hyphens out and he's not great with apostrophes, either Highly irritating. A few places a comma could've been utilised as well.
This is all basic punctuation that should be spotted if I can! This sentence means nothing, either Picnicked isn't pick-nicked as was written here and he wrote gentleman's and not gentlemen's. If you're a dog lover as I am you want to give this a wide berth as well as there's some properly upsetting nastiness involving one in this I wasn't very impressed that Judy didn't always bother to tell a full story, either There was even a mistake in the author's acknowledgements at the end!!
All in all, I won't stick with this series. It's really not for me. Feb 14, Carol Peace rated it it was amazing Shelves: kindle-books. I loved this book, it hit the ground running and just didn't ease off the pace.
