Gritty noir fiction, mind-bending fantasy, and medical thriller combine in a new novel by an author dubbed the “cyberpunk Dashiell Hammett.”

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.

    " I quit when the mad doctor started talking to his... what was it... a lizard? Internally dishonest, and too fantabulist for my tastes. "

    " The Resurrectionist brims with wildly imaginative elements. And while the story and characters felt unfinished, as though the novel needed one more draft before going to print, I enjoyed O'Connell's ability to play with weirdness, and I will look out for more of his books. "

    " When I read the synopsis of this book on the book jacket, I was very intrigued about the book. The story line seemed interesting and creative. I was kind of excited about my find. Within the first few pages I was having to dodge F bombs! I was confused through most of it and REALLY didn't appreciate the foul language that was all throughout. I skimmed through MORE than half the book to get to the end of the book. "
