Impulses: Intriguing Psychological New Novel Questions How Pillar of Respectability Finds Himself Freefalling into Depths of Depravity
Combining his international career as a hospital specialist and pioneer in the modern-day treatment of diabetes with a life-long passion for writing, Jeremy Bending’s latest novel, Impulses, delivers a dark and captivating tale. With consummate professional Brian Stewart going off the rails in such spectacular fashion as to have life-changing and catastrophic consequences, what could be behind his monumental psychological derailment?
Impulses follows the story of respectable professional Brian Stewart and his abject decline into compulsive gambling and arrest for rape.
Delivering a multi-faceted protagonist in a narrative that keeps readers guessing as to the reasons for such a devastating personality change, this fast-paced and intriguing novel is not only hard to put down, but also provides an insight into the distress put upon partners when they are confronted with the psychological meltdown of those they love.
Well-conceived and intellectually sharp, Impulses is a mind-bending read that lingers long after its last page and positions the author as a substantive talent to seek out online or in the bookshop.
Praise for Impulses:
‘A real page turner; a gripping story based on medical fact. The poignancy of what happens to Brian and his family is overwhelmingly well described, and the book should be widely read for its storyline, which is so relevant to modern medicine.’
– Professor John Wass, Professor of Endocrinology at Oxford University.
‘Impulses has elements of modern tragedy, moments of revelation, and a tragic change in circumstance.’
– Ronnie Brown, author of Restless Souls
