The Unassuming Assassin
After Mel Roberts’ 9-year-old daughter is brutally murdered, something snaps inside. Mel tracks down and kills his daughter’s murderer, then turns to delivering his own personal justice for others who escaped the justice system.
In The Unassuming Assassin (254 pages), author Les Arnott draws on his experiences as a former Sheffield teacher, magistrate and preacher to explore motifs of revenge and forgiveness. Is it possible for a serial-killer to turn his life around and find God? This gritty, thrilling tale of murder and intrigue examines the very nature of truth and lies, right and wrong, love and lust, revenge and forgiveness, selfishness and sacrifice – putting society’s failings under the microscope.
Updated and adapted for a new generation, this Reloaded edition makes The Unassuming Assassin perhaps more relevant than ever before. Set mainly in Sheffield, the work has a true Steel City flavour.
This book contains a Christian message and themes of violence throughout.
