Fans of YOU on Netlfix will love Mark Pryor's Dominic.
Only two other people know that Dominic, a charming Englishman, prosecutor, and musician in Austin, Texas, is also a psychopath. They also know that a year ago he got away with murder. One of those people is his "special lady," and the other is her brother, a teenager and fellow psychopath called Bobby. When a wily homicide detective starts digging up that past murder, little Bobby offers to take care of the problem--permanently. Dominic tries to dissuade him, but as he himself knows, psychopaths aren't good with following instructions. Or impulse control. As Detective Megan Ledsome circles closer, Dominic knows his life depends on keeping his secrets hidden, from her and the rest of the world. And when his annoying office-mate declares his interest in a judicial position, one he himself would like, Dominic realizes that one of his carefully-orchestrated plans could kill two birds with one stone. Of course, that means some sleight of hand and a sacrifice or two. But if there's one thing a psychopath doesn't mind, it's sacrificing other people.
Austin, Tex., prosecuting attorney Dominic, the principal narrator of Pryor's unsettling if unsatisfying sequel to 2015's Hollow Man, has an interest in protecting 16-year-old Bobby, because Bobby knows he's a murderer. A charming psychopath, Dominic sees Bobby as "a younger version of me, too young to actually be diagnosed as a psychopath, but headed in the right direction." Dominic accepts Bobby's offer to help stop the homicide detective investigating the unsolved murder he committed a year earlier. Another person who poses a threat to Dominic is Brian McNulty, his hapless officemate, whose ordinary first-person narrative nicely contrasts with Dominic's. Brian has his eye on a judgeship that Dominic wants for himself. The plot takes some surprising and often convenient turns, at times straining credulity. Fans of Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho may be okay with Dominic, but others will have a problem with the lack of any central characters that engender sympathy, let alone empathy.
