- N. J. Cooper
- Ambitious young psychologist Karen Taylor is called back to the Isle of Wight in this terrifying new thriller from the acclaimed crime writer.
- 'Face of the Devil then, is well crafted and compassionate. It draws on themes of family discord, notions of responsibility both moral and legal, and uses misdirection with great aplomb; it is a deft piece of work from a thoroughly talented writer' BookGeeks.co.uk http://www.bookgeeks.co.uk/2011/06/07/face-of-the-devil-by-n-j-c ooper/ 'Critics generally line up with a series of encomiums for the talented Cooper, and it must rankle for her that far less talented writers have a higher profile. But on the strength of the scarifying Face of the Devil, it's surely only a matter of time before Cooper gets the kind of sales and attention commensurate with her talent' Crimetime.co.uk 8/7. (http://www.crimetime.co.uk/mag/index.php/showarticle/1896) 'A probing psychological book that reaches out to the reader on two levels, that of an interesting mystery and a deeply fascinating psychological insight into family relationships. Highly recommended.' Eurocrime

- Summary expansion
- Suzie Gray is only fifteen when she is stabbed to death within metres of her uncle's yacht on the Isle of Wight. Her body is found in the blood-smeared arms of Olly Matken, a family friend who grew up with her. Schizophrenic and vulnerable, he presents a serious challenge to the police. 'I didn't hurt her!' Olly protests. 'All I did was keep her from the devil.' DCI Charlie Trench turns to forensic psychologist Karen Taylor. She knows she should ignore his call, but she cannot. Curiosity and, although she would never admit it to her partner, Will, a dangerous attraction to the brooding detective, push her into a deeply troubling case. Is Olly capable of murder? His own psychologist doesn't think so, but his father does. The only way to find the truth is to identify Olly's devil. And Karen has demons of her own
