Forgotten Books: Books Living in Obscurity: Damaged Souls by Farah Ali

 

Finding forgotten books which are lost to obscurity of the online book store is not a quick or easy task.  By it’s nature, that darkly woven web of carefully crafted search criteria attempts to hide these hidden treasures and give up only the more popular (and thus more likely to sell) reads.

About Damaged Souls (quoted from the Amazon page)

A dark and compelling psychological mystery thriller

Agnes Mason is the first. Her body is found in the river—stripped, bathed and expertly tattooed after death. She won’t be the last.

A serial killer with a deadly obsession stalks the city. As the body count ratchets up the police are baffled and without suspects it seems nothing will stop the murderer from striking again…

Tattoo artist Alana Clifton lives for her work using her remarkable talent to ease her loneliness and experience intimate but fleeting connections with her clients.

When a journalist investigating the murders turns up at her studio with a personal agenda, troubled Alana is reluctantly and irresistibly drawn into the macabre deaths and the killer’s twisted mind…

Who will be next?
Hide your tattoos and keep your secrets to yourself.”
