Eventually Leighton stops lecturing me, probably just to catch his breath. After our last encounter I can take it a bit better and I'm feeling more robust. I even manage to look at the artery increasingly protruding and pulsing in his neck as he spits venom at me. I wonder what it would be like to pop a pencil straight into it and watch it burst like crimson rain all over his office. I might enjoy that.
Meet Jez. Jez is adulterous husband to Maxine, devoted father to Jamie, promiscuous lover, university professor, pro-vice chancellor for research – and a serial killer aiming to get to the top by any means necessary. His passion for murder parallels his love of music and he matches each kill with its own special theme song to enhance the experience as he works towards assembling his top forty greatest hits. When the vice-chancellor of lowly ranked Francis Drake University begins to sexually pester Jez’s mistress Bella, it accelerates his plans for domination. But will he get there?
