How do you counsel someone who wants to kill?

Chummy explores the mind of a serial killer in the moments before his first murder. Desperate to control himself, the mysterious psychopath known only as 'Chummy' pleads with private investigator Jackie Straker to keep his mind from succumbing to its strongest, most evil desire. With nowhere else to turn in fear of getting locked up for his thoughts, Chummy becomes desperate for someone, anyone to stop him killing.

This gripping psychological thriller by BAFTA award-winning writer John Foster (Letters from a Killer, BBC's Omnibus), explores the mind of a serial killer desperate to subdue his impulses without risking his life. With nowhere to turn, this neo-noir is a thrilling story of addiction, obsession and the lack of support that drives people to act on their most secret desires.
