Title: Forever Night
Author: Stephen B. King
Genre: Thriller, Police Procedural, Psychological thriller
Paul Williams is an ex SAS soldier who suffered physical and psychological injuries during an Afghanistan battle. After his wife Amanda leaves him, Williams begins a search to find and murder her.
The army has trained him never to fail, never give up, and survive at all costs, and he is determined to succeed on his final, sacred mission.
Using disguises, Williams passes for 'normal,' but he strikes ruthlessly when he finds any woman who resembles Amanda because he is incapable of mercy.
Williams has quickly become the worst serial killer in the State's history, and Detective Inspector Dillon Bradley heads a task force to stop him. But Williams has his own agenda and intends to cause as much havoc as possible. He will succeed in locating Amanda or die trying and take as many police officers as possible with him.
Like a glimpse into the private world of an author...that is what reading their first book is like. This story is gripping and intense. Not surprising this was the first work of the best serial murder mystery author of this century. The ripper here is a complex character whose inner mind is shown in all the gory detail by the 'peek' at the journal pages.
The detective is another of the past his prime heroes who, in many ways, is facing as many issues as the killer he seeks. The story doesn't drip with gory details, but the imagery created will make a reader gasp. A brilliant book written by a brilliant author.
In all honesty, I cannot fathom why this author's work hasn't been made into a screenplay. This story and the entire Glimpse series would be so incredibly successful. This sort of writing is what the public at large has been clamoring for in the last decade at least. Someone will gain a ton of money by turning these stories into movies or a tv series.
Recommended to every reader of the Glimpse series. Fans of this author will have to buy this book. If you are a fan of ID Discovery, then you will want to read this book. Truly another gem of serial killer fiction that should be a best seller.

I left school very early to join a rock band, and spent a few years writing poems, short stories and music. I’ve won two short story writing competitions, had poems published, and enjoyed being a long-haired rock guitarist before life got in the way and I settled down, married and had children. I’ve owned my own businesses and managed large vehicle sales dealerships and observed people from all walks of life. It is these observations which has aided in creating characters.
Among my inspirations to become an author are the other slightly more famous Stephen King, Stieg Larsen, Val McDermid and Leonard Cohen.
