Book Description:

Professor George Albert Fredrick Drummond has been living a double life full of contradictions for over forty years. Erudite student, professor, respected Oxford University department head, serial killer. Loyal son of God, supplicant of Satan.

Drummond is a collector of serial killer memorabilia, sequestered in a secret room under the stairs. He scares his housekeeper from going into the room to clean and his secret is safe, at least until his best friend and former student, suspecting something is amiss, makes his way into the small room where standing in a decorative Japanese umbrella stand, he comes across a collection of walking sticks containing swords the professor has been using to murder, disembowel and decapitate victims for most of a lifetime.

With a detective from England’s, and one of the world’s, greatest law enforcement departments, The National Crime Agency, hot on his trail, a thrilling chase through England, Japan, America’s Big Apple and Napa Valley, ensues, while the international body count continues to rise, before the inevitable, yet surprising, end.

Devil’s Sympathy is a fascinating novel about a serial killer. The killer, a college professor named Drummond, appears to be a normal, law-abiding citizen. But in secret he’s actually a savage killer, murdering his victims over many years. The book really gets into the mind of this serial killer, whose life is filled with contradictions. He wears immaculate, custom-made, three piece suits, is a good tipper, and has a cat named Maggie. He loves flowers and plants of all types, in particular foxgloves. Yet he commits the murders in very gruesome ways. The plot accelerates when the police suspect his involvement, leading to a world-wide chase for his capture. I loved the startling ending to this novel. If you are a fan of serial killer novels, you will definitely want to read this book.
