Gritty noir fiction, mind-bending fantasy, and medical
thriller combine in a new novel by an author dubbed the “cyberpunk Dashiell
Sweeney is a druggist by trade; Danny, his son, is in a
persistent coma, the victim of an accident. Hoping for a miracle, they have
come to the Peck Clinic, a fortress-like haven in a post-industrial city
overrun by gangs. Doctors there claim to have resurrected two patients who were
similarly lost in the void.
Gradually, Sweeney realizes that the cure for his son’s
condition may lie in “Limbo,” a fantasy comic-book world into which Danny had
been drawn at the time of his accident. Plunged into the intrigue that
surrounds the clinic, Sweeney searches for answers and instead finds sinister
back alleys, brutal dead ends, and terrifying rabbit holes of mystery.
Full of puzzles and surprises, The Resurrectionist is a surreal, gothic meditation on identity,
the nature of consciousness, the power of stories, love, mad scientists, circus
freaks, and ultimately forgiveness—both giving and receiving.
