Was He Born or Made a Killer? A Prelude to Closure Published by Outskirts Press

Novelist Nelson Mays’ new psychological suspense novel takes a troubled Mr. Naismith on a journey into his own psyche and deep into his troubled past to prompt readers to arrive at their own answer to the question “Are killers born or are they made?”

Bella Vista, AR, October 15, 2011 --( Author Nelson Mays announced today the release of A Prelude to Closure, published by Outskirts Press. Mays’ psychological thriller shows what can happen to a man when he digs too deep into his past and takes himself from the innocence of a young boy into a mindset of vindictive killing.

Continuous anger and recurring bad thoughts have started to overwhelm every aspect of Mr. Naismith’s now troubled life. He knows he needs help. He begins a journey of self-help by exploring his past with psychiatrist Dr. Cochran and soon finds he is able to unlock doors in his mind which have been closed for a very long time.

In this newly discovered corner of his psyche, Naismith finds he is being taken from the innocent desires of a young boy to the vindictive intentions of a killer seeking the ultimate closure. With this new “truth” in his life, he begins to understand just what needs to be done to subdue this new anger and the fervent desire that is consuming him.

But can blood, torture and brutality be the only way?

Mays takes readers on a suspense filled path toward self-discovery as Mr. Naismith follows his own road of therapy with this newly found purpose in his life. Was he born to be a killer or has he, in fact, been made that way?
