“The Never Known Darkness Comes” is centered on the thoughts and actions of Scott, a seemingly ordinary young man with a twisted secret: he loves to kill. In a world that relentlessly represses primal instincts, Scott is the apex predator. He roams the streets eager for his next kill. How long will it take before the authorities stop Scott’s bloody machinations?

In his astonishing debut, Arthur lays bare the dark side of human nature. “The Never Known Darkness Comes” is a gripping tale of blood, murder and mayhem.

An excerpt from the novel reads:

“I wonder, is the hair on the back of their necks tingling right now with my thoughts of their death lingering over them? Do they see my face in their nightmares because they know they can never get away with what they have done? Or are they clueless to their future. Living one drug induced day to the next.”
