Timothy Blake returns, with an insatiable appetite, in the thrillingly addictive sequel to Hangman.
Timothy Blake, ex-consultant for the FBI, now works in body-disposal for a local crime lord. One night he stumbles across a body he wasn't supposed to find and is forced to hide it. When the FBI calls Blake in to investigate a missing university professor, Blake recognises him as the dead man in his freezer.
Then another man goes missing. And another.
There's a serial killer in Houston, Texas, and Blake is running out of time to solve the case. His investigation takes him to a sex doll factory, a sprawling landfill in Louisiana and a secret cabin in the woods.
As they hunt the killer together, FBI agent Reese Thistle starts to warm to Blake - but she also gets closer and closer to discovering his terrible secret.
Can Blake uncover the killer, without being exposed himself?
A confounding, intriguing and wildly suspenseful thriller from the bestselling and acclaimed author of Hangman.
'Jack Heath is worryingly skilled in all things dark and sinister. Luckily he is also bitingly, outrageously funny.' - Sarah Bailey, author of The Dark Lake
'Jack Heath's Hangman is a perverse, twisted take on a crime novel - and I loved every page of it. What a rarity to find a thriller as dark as a Palahniuk and as compulsively readable as a Patterson. Two well-chewed thumbs up for Hangman.' - Gregg Hurwitz, author of New York Times bestseller Hellbent
