Killer Instincts by Linden Chase
There’s darkness in the heart of Tranquility.
Society has developed reliable tests to detect psychopathy in individuals. Those with the disorder are re-classified as victims rather than monsters.
The question remains though, how does a liberal society deal with the inherently violent impulses of human predators who live among us.
In response a government think tank is launching an experiment, Tranquility; an island where psychopaths will be isolated and left to form their own community.
Zane King, an investigative journalist, has been given a tip-off by a high-level government source that something big is happening on a remote island. After a heart-stopping journey Zane manages to infiltrate Tranquility by persuading the citizens that he’s a psychopath just like them.
It doesn’t take Zane long to realise that something has gone very wrong with the experiment but by the time he fully understands what the island is really all about the community is already imploding in a wave of monstrous violence.
