Taking its inspiration from the classic hard-boiled crime tradition, Scorpio’s Children is the first novel in the Mark Desmond series.
It’s 1980. Investigator Mark Desmond is hired to snatch the daughter of Jefferson City’s wealthiest citizen away from the control of a sinister cult calling itself Scorpio’s Children. Duplicity and death stalk Desmond’s enquiries while every step he takes pushes him toward a collision between a past he’s done his best to erase and a present that’s empty of dreams.
“An internationally-recognised leader in existential therapy and coaching psychology, Professor Ernesto Spinelli developed and taught the first psychology undergraduate and PhD programmes to focus on counselling and psychotherapy research. He has contributed to a growing interest in, and professional appreciation of, existential therapeutic techniques.
Professor Spinelli publications and textbooks are standard reading for many psychotherapy and coaching training programmes around the world. His latest book, Practising Existential Therapy: The Relational World, 2nd edition (2015), was identified as the most influential contemporary text on existential therapeutic practice.” BPS
