Tom Piccirilli is the author of fourteen novels, including A Choir of Ill Children, November Mourns, and Headstone City, all available from Bantam Spectra. He has been a World Fantasy Award finalist and a four-time Bram Stoker Award winner. He lives in Denver, Colorado.
Within the first few minutes of Piccirilli's 2007 noir novel, its hero, Flynn, an investigator for New York's Child Protective Services, rescues a young girl and her autistic uncle from her homicidally insane mother, who chases them and forces their vehicle onto a frozen Long Island Sound where it promptly sinks. The girl and her uncle are saved, and so is Flynn. He's barely back on his feet, accompanied by the ghost of a bulldog that perished in the crash, when someone starts killing people he knows and/or loves. Donald Corren's perfectly timed rendition of the car chase and watery crash manages to convey a mixture of suspense and dark humor that he maintains throughout this action-packed, more than a little bizarre literary thriller. Piccirilli's fluid imagination provides a large cast of characters-angry, kind, disturbed, placid, young and old-and Corren finds the proper voice for each of them, including the talking ghost dog.

"Tom Piccirilli writes like a crazed banshee. I love his work."--Ken Bruen, author of The Guards and Ammunition "Tom Piccirilli's fiction is visceral and unflinching, yet deeply insightful. If you miss Piccirilli you're missing one hell of a treat."---F. Paul Wilson, author of The Keep and Harbingers "Piccirilli is the master of that strange, thrilling turf where horror, suspense and crime share shadowy borders. Wherever he's headed, count me in."--Duane Swierczynski, author of The Wheelman and The Blonde
