Description

When AA meetings make her want to drink more, alcoholic murderess Maeve sets up a group for psychopaths ? The dark, unpredictable, electrifyingly original new thriller from critically acclaimed author Will Carver.

‘Totally insane, and I mean that in the best of ways. Maeve is a brilliant character ? Incredibly dark and very funny’ Harriet Tyce
 
‘I fell in love with Carver’s murderous Maeve. This is an Eleanor Oliphant for crime fans. Carver truly at his best’ Sarah Pinborough
 
‘Another wild ride ? a darkly delicious page-turner’ S J Watson

—————————————

Maeve has everything. A high-powered job, a beautiful home, a string of uncomplicated one-night encounters. She’s also an addict: A functioning alcoholic with a dependence on sex and an insatiable appetite for killing men. 

When she can’t find a support group to share her obsession, she creates her own. And Psychopaths Anonymous is born. Friends of Maeve. 

Now in a serious relationship, Maeve wants to keep the group a secret. But not everyone in the group adheres to the rules, and when a reckless member raises suspicions with the police, Maeve’s drinking spirals out of control. 

She needs to stop killing. She needs to close the group. 

But Maeve can’t seem to quit the things that are bad for her, including her new man?

A scathing, violent and darkly funny book about love, connection, obsessions and sex – and the aspects of human nature we’d prefer to hide - Psychopaths Anonymous is also an electrifyingly original, unpredictable thriller that challenges virtually everything.
