My Review - 

A Predator and A Psychopath by Jay Kerk is a dark psychological thriller based on sexual violence and abusive behavior. The author draws inspiration from real stories and sums up them in a mind-blowing way. 

Jason Stankovic works in a Cyber firm as a Chief Financial Officer. He has a lovely wife named Lisa, and two kids, Lea and Matthew. The story starts when Jason found himself in a rehabilitation center and didn't remember the last few months of his life. He was accused of having an affair with someone close to him and murders his family when they found out. While Jason made a maiden attempt to run away from the facility, Dr. Thompson helped him remember his past. 

In the meantime, a man named Jerry, a handyman, tries to gain tenants' trust and invade their personal space. Jerry is a pedophile. He doesn't feel any emotions and looking for her mate. He needs a strong, beautiful, and highly sexual desire teenager who shared Jerry with other girls and carries his child. 

Jason and Jerry's paths crossed unexpectedly. While Jason tries to prove his innocence, Jerry is looking for his other prey. Both the characters are hateful in their twisted way. The detailed description of Jerry's sick acts makes a person think twice in the future if someone is trustworthy or not. There are so many characters, but everyone is placed in the right place, at the right time. The readers will certainly feel a lot of dark emotions while reading this book. 

Jay Kerk maintains the suspense element until the end and leaves the readers with their assumptions. The story is woven around the misuse of technology, the betrayal of closed ones, unhealthy relationships, mental disorders, obsession, and childhood abuse. The narration is flawless, but I feel the cover page could have been better. The story is fast-paced. This book is for a particular set of people who have the stomach to digest our society's brutal reality. I recommend this gripping thriller novel to adults.
