Product Description

The game begins in Seattle. On Halloween night, a woman opens her door to a trick-or-treater in a Munch's Scream mask. Later, she's found hanged with one leg missing.

Then, in Vancouver, another woman is found strung up in a noose with both legs missing.

What binds these murders together is a game of "Hangman" drawn in blood at each crime scene.

Years ago, both victims were jurors in a trial that sent the defendant to the gallows.

As the killings mount, Inspector Zinc Chandler of Special X - the Mounties’ psycho-hunters - and Seattle police Detective Maddy Thorne team up for a cross-border manhunt.

To stop this vendetta, they must solve the riddle of the Hangman puzzle before a final lynching means the vigilante wins the game.

"Murder with gore galore, and a killer who enjoys his hobby. There's plenty of legerdemain before the trick ending." - The Globe and Mail

"HANGMAN's escalating suspense is sustained not only by readers wondering 'whodunit,' but who will be the next to die. Every character is both a suspect and a potential victim. HANGMAN is an inventive, occasionally hilarious horror-mystery that delivers the goods by the bloody bag-full." - Quill & Quire

"A harrowing tale of revenge. HANGMAN is a hardboiled police procedural based on the tough realities that Slade faced every day in court. The hallmark of a Slade novel is extensive research. Readers come away not only entertained - and terrified - but also enlightened." - Cemetery Dance

"Fascinating stuff. The research on real-life hangmen is deftly larded into the fast-paced story." - The Vancouver Sun

"I love the Michael Slade books. A perfect combination of mystery and horror. And I love the history angles he throws in. My favorite so far has been RIPPER, or maybe HANGMAN. But I love them all." - Crime Spree Magazine

About the Author:
Criminal lawyer Michael Slade has acted in over a hundred murder cases. He specializes in the law of insanity, and argued the last hanging case in the Supreme Court. Reader’s Digest says: "The Slade books have developed a strong following among police officers because of their strict adherence to proper police procedure." Slade was guest speaker at the international Police Leadership Conference and at several RCMP regimental dinners, and was guest of honor at the World Horror Convention in Seattle.
