Slaughter King cover

    We were not looking for the most disgusting passage of sexual description to be found in the hard- or soft-core porn market, if that had been the intention, I suppose first prize would have gone to ... The Slaughter King
    Auberon Waugh, Literary Review
    Whitechapel is one of the new breed of crime writers, ready to slice through rules as easy as slicing through flesh. It's about time that the crime genre was infected by the blood of these people, intent on dragging its razored corpse into the age of AIDS, the Serial Killer and end of millennium psychosis
    Paul Buck, author of The Honeymoon Killers

A sadistic serial killer is leaving a seemingly random trail of butchered corpses, both male and female, across Europe. He kills and mutilates with the anatomical precision of a surgeon, the flair of a surrealist painter, and the insatiable ferocity of a beast.

Aided only by a dying girl who alone holds the key to the atrocities, policewoman Alanna Kirk trails the predatory killer through a dark underworld of S&M sex, organised suicide and police corruption, only to find that there are those who want the Slaughter King very much alive and on the streets...

Seen through the eye of a doomed lesbian love triangle, the series of dark and bloody events leads to an inexorable climax of violent, sudden death.
