The Death Collectors: 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 the distilling their agony onto canvas. It seems an auction has been anounced 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 than it first appears... 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 Jack Kerley: '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.' Booklist
