No amount of money can disguise the fact that wealthy twenty-eight-year-old Lachlan Maclean is physically and morally repugnant to all who know him. A broken human being and a killer, only a sick mind such as his could think up the experiment that he calls The Project. His aim is to excavate the deep depravity of the human condition, to create a grisly televised record of the true blackness at the centre of our bestial heart. The ultimate reality show. Instead, Lachie unearths a treasure trove of spontaneous and unaffected joy and light. For the first time in his wretched existence, he feels the power and the beauty of genuine love and perhaps even a chance at redemption. But the beast had been lurking in the shadows after all, a brooding evil borne of one of mankind's blackest nights. Now in a dark race against time and tormented by the forces of good and evil, Lachie is possibly the only man on earth who can save his precious new family. --------------------------------------------------------------

About the Author
Alex Breck was born in Scotland in 1962. He studied at Aberdeen University. The many paths he has trodden since then include driving an ice-cream in Kansas, banking in San Francisco and teaching English (badly) in Madrid. He has been a director of both a health club and a meat factory but would stress there was no obvious connection between the two. He lives quietly on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland where he likes to ride his bike up and down hills much to the consternation of his family. The name Alex Breck is a pen name using an old family name and that of a historical ruffian who might be found in the fine novel Kidnapped. Alex is the author of the Ridge Walker series of thrillers, including He Who Pays The Piper and The Piper's Lament. The third book in the series will be published soon.
