Sutler is the opening novel of The Kills, a remarkable series of four linked literary thrillers. The first three books - Sutler; The Massive; and The Hit - are set in Iraq and the Middle East, post Gulf Wars, and tell of the roles three men play in a scam to embezzle millions of dollars of reconstruction funds.
The fourth book, The Kill, is set in Italy, and is - at first glance - a standalone crime novel, but which refers constantly to the three preceding novels, linked in oblique and surprising ways.
Set in a shady world of conspiracy and danger, warfare and cultural terror, The Kills is a teasing study where nothing is ever quite what it seems.
From the acclaimed author of Apartment 16 and The Ritual comes a terrifying new horror novel

When promising young psychiatrist, James Richardson, is offered the job of a lifetime by the charismatic Dr. Hugh Maitland, he is thrilled. Setting off to take up his post at rural Wyldehope Hall, Richardson doesn’t look back. One of his tasks is to manage Maitland’s most controversial project – a pioneering therapy in which extremely disturbed patients are kept asleep for months. If this radical but potentially dangerous treatment is successful, it could mean professional glory for both doctors....
In this atmospheric re-invention of the ghost story, Richardson finds himself questioning everything he knows about the human mind, as he attempts to uncover the shocking secrets of The Sleep Room . . .
375 miles south-east of Newfoundland, the crew of a ship film an extraordinary event: the surface of the ocean bubbles as though boiling, covered with millions of fish. Then an enormous sperm whale roars through the water, before crashing down, dead, onto the surface. Within twenty-four hours, the footage has become a global phenomenon. The precise coordinates of the event are where the wreck of the Titanic lies some 13,000ft beneath.
Engineer Kate Wetherall and her one-time boyfriend, marine archaeologist Lou Bates have been working together for almost a year – specializing in the scientific investigation of shipwrecks at the Institute of Marine Studies. Three days after the incident off Newfoundland, Commander Jerry Derham, head of a team investigating what the military have designated 'Marine Phenomenon REZ375', arrives to see them. They need to get a team down there fast to investigate.
But none of them are prepared for what they find in the wreckage. Someone on the Titanic had been keeping a secret. One that might have cost lives, and that has remained trapped beneath the ocean for a hundred years. But now, there are those who would kill again to get hold of what one man died for in 1912 . . .
A family divided by fortune. A country divided by faith.
