William Fawkes, a controversial detective known as The Wolf, has just been reinstated to his post after he was suspended for assaulting a vindicated suspect. Still under psychological evaluation, Fawkes returns to the force eager for a big case. When his former partner and friend, Detective Emily Baxter, calls him to a crime scene, he’s sure this is it: the body is made of the dismembered parts of six victims, sewn together like a puppet—a corpse that becomes known as “The Ragdoll.”

Fawkes is tasked with identifying the six victims, but that gets dicey when his reporter ex-wife anonymously receives photographs from the crime scene, along with a list of six names, and the dates on which the Ragdoll Killer plans to murder them.

The final name on the list is Fawkes.

Baxter and her trainee partner, Alex Edmunds, hone in on figuring out what links the victims together before the killer strikes again. But for Fawkes, seeing his name on the list sparks a dark memory, and he fears that the catalyst for these killings has more to do with him—and his past—than anyone realizes.

With a breakneck pace, a twisty plot, and a wicked sense of humor, Ragdoll announces the arrival of the hottest new brand in crime fiction.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author

  • “I’d give an arm or a leg to get hold of Ragdoll…An exciting thriller.”

    Linwood Barclay, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Daniel Cole’s Ragdoll is a bold first step in what is liable to be a spectacular career. Disturbing, taut and compelling, this book took me down the rabbit hole as only the best of thrillers can. Bravo, Mr. Cole.”

    John Hart, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A gritty fusion of police procedural, mystery, and thriller…Cole uses the rising tension and the mystery of the killer’s true identity to create a page-turning narrative.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In portraying the real emotions and inner turmoil of its flawed protagonist, Cole’s grim yet humorous first novel offers a fresh take on British detective drama.”

    Library Journal

  • “A smart, psychologically complex read. Think Luther (BBC) meets Harry Bosch, and toss in some dark, old-country folklore for good measure.”

    Booklist

  • “A star is born. Killer plot. Killer pace. Twisted killer and a killer twist. Kill to get a copy.”

    Simon Toyne, author of Solomon Creed

  • Finalist for the 2018 International Thriller Writers Award
