Deputy Sheriff Lou Ford is a pillar of the community in his small Texas town, patient and thoughtful. Some people think he's a little slow and boring, but that's the worst they say about him. But then nobody knows about what Lou calls his "sickness". It nearly got him put away when he was younger, but his adopted brother took the rap for that. Now the sickness that has been lying dormant for a while is about to surface again - and the consequences are brutal and devastating.
Tense and suspenseful, The Killer Inside Me is a brilliantly sustained noir crime masterpiece.

The Banality of Evil
Told in the first person this is a nasty little tale about a small town killer abusing a position of trust and power. His descent into full on evil and probable madness is skilfully told but it is the mundane way he goes about his sordid murders and his nauseating rationalisations that are the most sickening. Clearly he has been disturbed for many years and at the point we encounter him he is beyond saving. It's writing that is as hard as nails and pitiless with little, if any, redemption so be warned.

unapologetically chilling and hard noir
What did you like most about The Killer Inside Me?
Well written but slightly out stays its welcome by the end. However that's a minor flaw a great psychological look through the eyes of a stone cold, unemotional character
What does Tim Flavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The narrator is wonderful at getting that hard-boiled prose spot on
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
there are some pretty glib, grim points of view and turns of phrases and the whole thing is very very very misogynistic. The violence and treatment towards women will probably still upset those offended by things like that so it is not for everyone
