The Inferiority Complex: A Thriller Novel

Rate this book

He was an inferior man. He didn’t buy into the myth of an inferiority complex; he was inferior. But all of that changed six months ago. He became a superior man. He decided to act. This was when his masterplan, “The Messiah Machination”, was born.
The plan is now in motion; he has just committed his first murder. This is only the beginning but it’s also only half of the story because he has a very specific target in mind.
What does this mean? Why is he doing this? What’s his next move? The truth is … only he knows.

When a poem is discovered on the body of a girl in the fountain at Washington Square Park in Manhattan, Detective First Grade, Imogen Carter, catches the case. It soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary case.
Mentally, she’s fatigued. She has personal issues to deal with. She has one hell of a dilemma to consider. Will all of this prove too much or will she find a way to suppress the negativity, compartmentalise her emotions and focus on the case?
If she’s going to apprehend whoever is responsible then she’s going to need to … before New York City gets brought to its knees.

The Inferiority Complex is Ryan's debut novel.

TJ, a socially awkward, highly intelligent psychopath and serial killer, goes on a killing spree for reasons that make sense only to him. With a mole within the Manhattan NYPD department, it is up to Detective First Grade Imogen Carter to apprehend the killer before he brings City of New York to its knees.

The story is told through first-person perspective in the form of diary entries and third-person omniscient. The narration is both clever and engrossing. TJ’s victims are mostly derogatory people which keep the reader from having to worry too much about their gruesome killings, but it doesn’t stop readers to see TJ’s sinister inner self. Imogen is a darling, a highly likable character. Degg generates plenty of suspense along the way to the satisfying finale.

Wholly engrossing and entertaining!

It starts off a little slow then it picks up steam, Avery goog read. Even though we find out Early on that TJ is a bad guy you known there is some angust in there. Throughout the book we learn about the detectives an TJ and Angel. It was a long book with 84 chapters and an epilogue, so it gives you plent of time to build your characters and figure out some that she be good or not. I hope to see more books by Mr. Ryan Degg.
