Song of the Psychopath by Mark Tilbury.
A year after going missing from home, Tommy Scarlett is found unconscious in an isolated country road. He has a fractured skull, broken wrist, and numerous other injuries. Recovering in hospital, Tommy has no recollection of the past. He doesn’t even recognize his own family.
After returning home, Tommy suffers severe headaches and acute depression. Desperate to help him, his father puts him into the care of a private therapist. But Tommy soon learns his troubles are far from over.
As the past is slowly unlocked, it becomes increasingly clear that Tommy has suffered an ordeal so horrendous it beggars belief. And those responsible are determined to silence him by any means possible.
Can Tommy find out what really happened to him and bring those responsible to justice?
Or will the past finally catch up with him and finish him off for good?
About Mark Tilbury:
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
He's always had a keen interest in writing and after being widowed and raising his two daughters, Mark finally took the plunge and began self-publishing. After being published by an indie publisher Mark has now returned to self-publishing and is re-launching his back catalogue, before a new thriller is due out March 2021
When he's not writing, Mark can be found playing guitar, reading and walking.
To be able to write about evil that is so evil it's unspeakable, has to be handled with care and sensitivity and nobody does this better than author Mark Tilbury. With each new book, Mr Tilbury manages to step up evilness to a new level of atrocity. I'll say it again, like I always say regarding a Tilbury book, this is not for the faint-hearted, which for many readers such as myself is a huge selling point.
Tommy Scarlett has been missing for almost a year, and found in the road with multiple injuries, and returned to his family minus his memory from during the period that he went missing to before, hence he doesn't know who he or his family are. The scars on his body suggest that he had suffered awful abuse, and that he had escaped his captors, but he has no idea who or where they are.
Tormented by occasional flashbacks, and seemingly psychotic episodes, Tommy is not the same boy that left them and can be extremely difficult to live with. Despite Tommy's challenging behaviour, his father Charlie and sister Danielle do not give up on him and take steps to find out what has happened to him.
