Here is a short sample from the book:
I don’t drink blood, I don’t transform into a murderous creature and I don’t kill … technically.
Death is my horrid obsession and those who are close to it draw me in. I can smell it, invisibly, intangibly wafting from them, like pheromones attracting and pulling me. I always manage to find the ones who love life too much or too little: the adrenaline junkies, the drug addicts. I find the ones blessed with a healthy body who choose to abuse it.
It’s the choice that entraps my fixation.
I find them and push them to the crumbling edge of their vice. I never inject the needle, but I definitely fill it. And as they slip away, I watch with fascination, lust and disgraceful desire.
