Retriever of Souls

Brought up believing that sex is the devil's work, a killer only finds release once he has saved his victim's souls. Abiding by his vision, he marks them as his. A gift to guide his chosen ones on the rightful path to redemption.
Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is out to stop him, but Paolo has problems of his own. Hunting down the killer as the death toll rises, the lines soon blur between Paolo's personal and professional lives.

This extract is from the killer’s perspective. He used the scourge on his back to punish himself until he passed out.
He woke several hours later, prostrate on the floor next to the scourge. Drenched in sweat, he felt as though his heart would burst if he tried to stand. Moving onto his side to ease the pain in his lacerated back, he forced himself to confront the truth. No matter how many he killed, it would never be enough to help her. He’d never be able to save her soul. By the time he’d killed her, it had already been too late, she’d given in to the devil. But he’d prayed and God had answered his prayer. If he saved enough souls then hers would be redeemed.
He reached across to the bedside table and lifted the photograph, picturing in his mind once more the mess she had become. How she’d looked before he’d ended her miserable life.
It was his duty, his sacred duty to save the souls of those who would take her path. The first one he’d chosen had been close to the older version in age, but then the Lord had appeared and shown him his mistake. It was too late for the older ones; he had to pick them while they were still young enough to have a soul worth salvaging. He chose younger whores, ones who looked like the woman in the photograph.
But it still wasn’t enough, night after night the line of those who needed his touch stretched into eternity. He would never be able to save them all – and if he couldn’t do that, then he could never save his mother’s soul.
