"Let's cut to the chase: Hangmanis agreatread! Jack Heath's boundless imagination and singular voice have produced a truly unique thriller. By turns, psychologically insightful, wonderfully disturbed and even darkly comedic, Hangmanwill keep you coursing through the pages at a lightning pace. Brilliant! (Probably best read with lights on and doors locked. I'm just saying.)" --Jeffery Deaver, New York Timesbestselling author

"Jack Heath's writing grabs you by the throat, gnaws on your bones, and washes it all down with a hefty dose of funny. Sick, twisted, violent, and oh so good. In Timothy Blake, Heath has created a one-of-a-kind character. I hope." --Emma Viskic, award-winning author ofResurrection Bay

"Prose so hard-boiled it will crack your teeth." --Gordon Reece, author ofMice

"In the age of the anti-hero, morally ambiguous characters compel readers to empathize with and root for them, despite their troubled natures and character flaws....Hangmanis ghoulish fun, and fills the Dexter- and Hannibal-shaped holes in our lives." --Books+Publishing(Australia)

"The hero of Jack Heath'sHangmanis certainly a monster, but strangely, ever so strangely, oddly likeable.... This novel is all about tempo and character." --Weekend Australian

"A vivid and disturbing thriller.... A grisly, efficiently written nail-biter packed with riddles and suspense, Hangmanhas bestseller written all over it." --The Age(Australia)

"An accomplished and compulsive thriller that kept my appetite to return to its banquet of kidnapping and bloody murder... Irresistibly and mercilessly readable." --Sydney Arts Guide
