Johan Fundin’s Mr. Maniac is a chilling tale of suspense, horror and a mysterious killer. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.
A novelist gets lost in the grey zone between fiction and reality when real murders of young women appear copied from his latest, still unfinished manuscript.
“An excellent read – a real page turner throughout.” From A Yellow House book reviews & features
Someone is murdering female students at an esteemed university. Kenneth, a young physics doctor turned suspense novelist, starts his own murky murder investigation with the help of his cat and his new mysterious girlfriend.
Kenneth receives strange telephone calls: an old, dead woman phones the author from her grave, encouraging him to look inside himself for the truth. Could he be the killer himself? Is the author a psychotic fictional character who stepped out of his own book?
