The extraordinarily intense novel Conscious of Guilt enters the mind of a man who has been pushed to the very limits. Seventy-year-old Eric Brand is a struggling pensioner living in London with his frail wife, Helen.
The Brands are devastated when their son and daughter-in-law are brutally murdered by a gang. Helen collapses at the news and ends up in a coma. Consumed with rage and believing he has nothing to lose, Eric vows revenge. After weeks of frustration, he tracks the gang down and acquires a gun. Recognizing Eric’s ruthlessness and seeming lack of conscience, Eric is approached by a man wanting him to become a contract killer. Will he be seduced by the siren call of the gun or will he regret what he has done in the name of vengeance? Will Eric feel Conscious of Guilt?
