Stephen Hartill | 2 comments This one's really tough to talk about without spoilers so apologies in advance! I read it in about 2014/2015 I think but it was definitely older than that. I think the cover had a shadowy figure on it, it was written by a man, and I think it was American - definitely Western! Mature content with some gorey parts. I think the title had "Monster" or something like that in it. It was pretty disturbing but has been driving me crazy to remember the title, so any help would be amazing! Plot details below.


It starts off with the male protagonist, who I think works in finance or has some high-pressure corporate job like that, having affairs with married women, and gradually he becomes crazier and more violent, eventually committing murders and (finally) drowning himself at the end.

Don't lose hope and stop posting. People have found books after a few years of waiting. I did. It is quite a thrill to find a book when you thought no one would know it!
