Robert Devine

Robert Devine is the pseudonym I use for turning out dark, gritty thrillers and police procedurals: titles which are not for the faint-hearted.

There are four Robert Devine books available and more to come in the future.


(Allan Cain Book #1)

Who controls the hypnotic process? The subject or the hypnotist?

And when that hypnotist is a sadistic serial killer, the victims will never again take control back.

In a small town like Scarbeck there are few candidates for the true identity of the sadistic Dominus, but one of them is master hypnotist, Allan Cain…

Even though his kidnapped partner is likely to be Dominus’s next victim.

Caution. this book contains strong, adult scenes.
