9780007180615: The Death Collectors (Carson Ryder, Book 2)

A terrifying new serial-killer thriller featuring Carson Ryder, hero of the bestselling The Hundredth Man.

Thirty years after his death, Marsden Hexcamp's ‘Art of the Final Moment’ remains as sought after as ever. But this is no ordinary collection. Hexcamp's portfolio was completed with the aid of a devoted band of acolytes – and half a dozen victims, each of whom was slowly tortured to death so that their final agonies could be distilled into art.

When tiny scraps of Hexcamp's ‘art’ begin appearing at murder scenes alongside gruesomely displayed corpses, Detective Carson Ryder and his partner Harry Nautilus must go back three decades in search of answers.

Meanwhile an auction has been announced and the death collectors are gathering. These wealthy connoisseurs of serial-killer memorabilia will pay millions to acquire Hexcamp's art – unless Carson and Harry can beat them in their quest for the anti-grail.

Review:

Praise for The Death Collectors:

‘A fascinating and frightening take on the genre’ Independent on Sunday

‘Kerley who writes like a house on fire, has a boundless and truly ghastly imagination that’ll keep you awake long after you turn the last page’ Kirkus

Praise for The Hundredth Man:

‘A superb debut novel. A headless torso, the heat-soaked Alabama nights, a detective with a secret. Fantastic’ Sunday Express

‘A chilling journey into a pitch-black mind’ Michael Marshall

‘A sturdy hero with a clearcut mission and a setting that holds possibilities for fresh adventure. Kerley writes in a thrusting style that pushes the action from crime scene to autopsy table…’ The New York Times Book Review

‘Kerley jacks up the tension effectively, building to an all-stops-out climax. The plot is a treasure chest of interlocked pieces’ Booklist (starred review)

About the Author:

Jack Kerley worked in advertising and teaching before becoming a full-time novelist. He lives in Newport, Kentucky, but also spends a good deal of time in Southern Alabama, the setting for The Hundredth Man. He is married with two children.

Book Description HarperCollins, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Brand new. Even serial killers have their fans. When tiny scraps of macabre "art" turn up alongside gruesomely displayed corpses, Detective Carson Ryder and his partner Harry Nautilus trace them to the work of Marsden Hexcamp. But Hexcamp was killed thirty years ago. His art remains sought after, though by some very strange collectors - it was made by torturing people to death and then distilling their agony on to canvas. It seems an auction has been announced and these connoisseurs of serial-killer memorabilia are gathering to pay millions for Hexcamp's art - unless Carson and Harry can beat them in their quest for the anti-grail. But the truth of Hexcamp's terrifying career may be even more twisted and bizarre than it first appears. Bookseller Inventory # 007268
