Children are disappearing in Mobile, Alabama, the latest snatched from her own bedroom. There are no clues – and, as yet, no bodies. With public anger reaching dangerous levels, homicide detective Carson Ryder finds a case hopelessly tangled up in murky local politics. Ryder’s bosses have one last hope, though: Connor Sandhill, a former cop whose uncanny ability to solve baffling crimes is legendary. But Sandhill left the police in mysterious circumstances and his presence on the case causes uproar. With the hunt ever more urgent, he and Ryder must form an uneasy alliance. At the root of these disappearances is something truly evil – and its source is closer to home than either could have imagined.

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 his Carson Ryder series, starting with 'The Hundredth Man'. He is married with two children.Review:
Praise for Jack Kerley:`A fascinating and frightening take on the genre' Independent on Sunday`Superb... fantastic.' Sunday Express`The master of the macabre' Guardian`A chilling journey into a pitch-black mind' Michael Marshall, author of `The Straw men' trilogy`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.' 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
