Bed of Nails, Slade, Michael
1 Slade, Michael Bed of Nails
Toronto Penguin Canada 2003 0143013831 / 9780143013839 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Light edge wear and scuffing; Father & daughter writing team Jay and Rebecca Clarke who comprise the pseudonymous Michael Slade. DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; Special X; 1.6 x 9.1 x 6.2 Inches; 399 pages; From deep within the high security ward of a mental hospital, the Ripper plots revenge against Inspector Zinc Chandler of Special X. When Chandler responds to a bizarre murder at a hotel in Vancouver—a Hollywood producer found suspended upside down like the Hanged Man card in a Tarot deck—the Mountie becomes enmeshed in a psychotic and deadly battle with the most implacable of enemies. Chandler must look back in time for a solution—back to London in 1888, terrorized by its own horrific Ripper—and also to the world of fiction, most notably the demented imaginings of H.P. Lovecraft. His search takes him from the realm of the Goths at the World Horror Convention to a deadly car chase with guns blazing in the streets of Vancouver, and finally to a nail-biting climax on the Kingdom of Bones in the cannibal isles of the South Pacific, where Survivor is the game and Chandler an unwilling contestant.
