Part classic noir thriller, part mind-bending fantasy, The Resurrectionist is a wild ride into a territory where nothing is as it appears. It tells the story of Sweeney, a druggist by trade, and his son Danny, the victim of an accident that has left him in a persistent coma. Hoping for a miracle, they have come to the forbidding, fortress-like Peck Clinic, whose doctors claim to have 'resurrected' other patients who were lost in the void...

Review:

"O'Connell is a mesmerizing storyteller."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"O'Connell is a mesmerizing storyteller."-The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"A masterpiece, O'Connell's "tour de force" has a dose of the uncertainty of Kafka, the fantasy of Bradbury, the crisp prose of Greene, and the noir of Chandler." - The Strand Magazine

"Unfailingly sly. . . . O'Connell is skilled at walking his particular tightrope between reality and surreality."--The Washington Post

A "dark, wildly inventive fantasy. . . . A nightmarish story that's hallucinatory, tightly structured and ultimately redemptive."--Kirkus

"It's a measure of O'Connell's immense talent that, while creating his absolutely original and hyperbolic world, he also paints a striking vision of the haunting ways in which life and art mirror each other."-- Publishers Weekly, starred

"A wild, surreal and thought-provoking ride." -"San Francisco Chronicle"
"To call Jack O'Connell's novels imaginative, or even original, doesn't begin to say it . . . There's something both exciting and unnerving about [his] kind of hallucinatory writing." -"The New York Times Book Review "
"O'Connell's gift for building tension within a scene is equaled by his ability to create wonderfully dark and elaborate stage sets upon which to play out his dramas . . . [He] is wilder, edgier, more far-ranging and extravagant than his fellow genre-jumpers." -"The Boston Globe"
