What is a sociopath to do?

Dyson Devereux has it all – a way with the ladies, impeccable good taste, and a complete inability to empathise with other human beings. Perfect for the head of Burials and Cemeteries at Newton Borough Council.

But Dyson’s fed up. How long will he have to deal with banal work colleagues, drug-addled girlfriends and gaudy memorial structures? It feels like he’s just serial-killing time …

When Dyson suspects someone of having an even darker past than him, he sees a chance to get out. Will he take it, or is he destined for a life of toil in the health-and-safety-obsessed public sector?

Brutal, bleak and darkly comical, Necropolis is a savage indictment of political correctness and woke culture.What is a sociopath to do?

Dyson Devereux’s life appears to be on track. He has a way with the ladies, impeccable good taste, and ...

So why does he want to wield a flamethrower during his work appraisal?

Probably because Dyson’s a sociopath, and things are getting on his nerves. At work, it’s the politically correct colleagues and gaudy memorial structures. At home, it’s the drug-addled girlfriend and her vicious dealer.

Something’s got to give.

‘…it’s the well-crafted and perfectly executed satirical observations, along with the dry wit and devious humour that makes ‘Necropolis’ such a delight to read.’

‘I remain slightly troubled as to why I found myself applauding a sociopath for being so thoroughly entertaining.’

As well as being a very British satire, this black comedy will appeal to fans of transgressive fiction authors like Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk and Irvine Welsh.

Not your average novel, Necropolis buries humorous fiction in a coffin brimming with satirical observations. If you like your crime and serial killer/psychopath books laced with dark humour, then Necropolis is the read you’re looking for.

If you like dark humour you'll love Necropolis.
