  • A gruesome delight! Daniel Cole’s thriller RAGDOLL, in which gritty detective William “Wolf” Fawkes comes upon a single corpse stitched together out of six bodies, had me flipping pages furiously. It’s an impressive debut, dark, propulsive, and surprisingly funny.

  • Six corpses in one – and that’s just the beginning! Don’t expect any let-up in this chilling ride-along with a serial killer more devious and warped than you could ever imagine.
