Mister Slaughter (5th printing) at Subterranean Press

Mister Slaughter is the third book in the acclaimed Matthew Corbett series by Robert McCammon. From the Subterranean Press website:

The world of Colonial America comes vibrantly to life in this masterful new historical thriller by Robert McCammon. The latest entry in the popular Matthew Corbett series, which began with Speaks the Nightbird and continued in The Queen of BedlamMister Slaughter opens in the emerging metropolis of New York City in 1702, and proceeds to take both Matthew and the reader on an unforgettable journey of horror, violence, and personal discovery.

The journey begins when Matthew, now an apprentice “problem solver” for the London-based Herrald Agency, accepts an unusual and hazardous commission. Together with his colleague, Hudson Greathouse, he agrees to escort the notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter from an asylum outside Philadelphia to the docks of New York. Along the way, Slaughter makes his captors a surprising–and extremely tempting–offer. Their response to this offer will alter the course of the novel, setting in motion a series of astonishing, ultimately catastrophic events.

Mister Slaughter is at once a classic portrait of an archetypal serial killer and an exquisitely detailed account of a fledgling nation still in the process of inventing itself. Suspenseful, illuminating, never less than compulsively readable, it is, by any measure, an extraordinary achievement, the largest accomplishment to date from one of our most gifted–and necessary–writers.

Dedicated to Slaughter

An audio tribute from Robert McCammon: I came across this while going through some old files. I did it when I was putting Mister Slaughter together, as a kind of “tribute” to the British horror actor Tod Slaughter, who was of course the influence for that whole book.

The first full-blown review of Robert McCammon’s Mister Slaughter has been posted by Mark Seiber at The Horror Drive-In. Mark loved it:  “But there’s more. Far more. McCammon provides numerous subplots and the criminal conspiracy Corbett encountered in The Queen of Bedlam is still afoot. There’s also a sinister bloody fingerprint on a playing card […]
