THE HUNDREDTH MAN by JACK KERLEY
Recalling Michael Connelly's taut storytelling and James
Patterson's searing narrative twists, The Hundredth Man
introduces a daring new talent. From its explosive first
pages to its startling conclusion, this novel creates a
world where heroes can't succeed without madmen, and the
dead are the most dangerous of all.
When bizarre and cryptic messages are found on a pair of
corpses in Mobile, Alabama, junior police detective Carson
Ryder and veteran cop Harry Nautilus find themselves in a
mysterious public-relations quagmire pitting public safety
against office politics. With the body count growing, Ryder
must confront his family's terrifying past by seeking
advice from his brother, a violent psychopath convicted of
similarly heinous crimes. Ryder finds himself falling for
Ava, the striking pathologist processing the gruesome
corpses. But Ava's past holds its own nightmarish secrets.
Chasing false leads while their boss relentlessly
undermines all progress, Ryder and Nautilus come to realize
someone close to them is the killer's ultimate target.
Thundering to a stark and chilling revelation, The
Hundredth Man marks the arrival of an author who raises the
stakes on every page.
