Book Club Edition

Specterlike and sinewy, dressed in a gray cape and top hat, with a bone-white face and madman's eyes, the Ghoul crawls from the London sewers to kill -- bloodily, perversely, inexplicably.

In a London pub, Jack Ohm watches the Saturday-night crowd of gay patrons enter a steambath.  Once his grisly work is done, he sends flowers to Scotland Yard.

Detective Chief Superintendent Hillary Rand is already investigating seven murders by a psychotic butcher the press has dubbed the Vampire Killer when these two new crimes land on her desk.  Her career is already on the line, and if she doesn't get results soon, it will be over.

In Vancouver, the horror-rock group Ghoul cavort onstage, their act a bizarre and violent front.  But for what?  Drugs?  Snuff films?  Dirty money?  Contract killings?  Inspector Zinc Chandler of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police thinks he knows and is prepared to throw away the rule book to find out.

Is there a connection between London's orgy of killing's and Vancouver's underworld sleaze?  The answer could lie in the dark obsessions and twisted fantasies of an old Rhode Island family whose tainted past will not lie quiet in its grave.

Ghoul is a powerful, bloody thriller, as complex and gripping as Michael Slade's sensational first novel, Headhunter.  It is the horror lover's worst nightmare come true.
