London, 1920. Elliot Taverley is an ambitious young psychoanalyst specialising in the new and controversial field of handwriting analysis. When he receives a visit from a man who seems to change personality when he copies others’ handwriting, Elliot is intrigued and soon becomes obsessed with the man and his mysterious disorder. Spiralling into an increasingly bizarre cat-and-mouse chase and with his mind collapsing, Elliot is forced to confront his difficult childhood and the horrors of war in Arctic Russia in a desperate search for the truth. ‘The Fractured Man’ is a psychological thriller that takes the reader through a war-ravaged Europe and the dark minds that inhabit it to a shocking conclusion.
"deliciously dark and hypnotic, a psychological thriller fused with the spine-tingling atmosphere of a ghost story". The List
