Dominic : A Hollow Man Novel
Dominic is British, a prosecutor, and a musician. He is also a murdering psychopath. That being said, he does have good qualities. He doesn’t have any of the normal emotional hang ups that normal people do, such as empathy, guilt, or fear to get in his way. Dominic takes a young man named Bobby under his wing because he recognizes the signs that he is also a psychopath and hopes to help him avoid jail and learn to control his impulses. Like Dominic, that is something that is very difficult for Bobby.
Dominic moves back and forth between Dominic, his girlfriend, and his coworker, prosecutor Brian McNulty. I honestly find the switching between first-person points of view irritating and often confusing. This, paired with my inability to find any redeeming qualities in Dominic that made me care if he succeeded at all, made it a very difficult read for me. The other characters never really caught my attention either and seemed to need fleshing out.
I have read all of Mark Pryor’s Hugo Marsten series, so I approached this with the same excitement. Sadly, this series does not compare to the other at all, and I was quite happy for it to end.
