Um corpo. Seis vítimas.O polêmico detetive William Fawkes, conhecido como Wolf, acaba de voltar à ativa depois de meses em tratamento psicológico por conta de uma tentativa de agressão. Ansioso por um caso importante, ele acredita que está diante da grande chance de sua carreira quando Emily Baxter, sua amiga e ex-parceira de trabalho, pede a sua ajuda na investigação de um assassinato. O cadáver é composto por partes do corpo de seis pessoas, costuradas de forma a imitar um boneco de pano.Enquanto Wolf tenta identificar as vítimas, sua ex-mulher, a repórter Andrea Hall, recebe de uma fonte anônima fotografias da cena do crime, além de uma lista com o nome de seis pessoas – e as datas em que o assassino pretende matar cada uma delas para montar o próximo boneco. O último nome na lista é o de Wolf.Agora, para salvar a vida do amigo, Emily precisa lutar contra o tempo para descobrir o que conecta as vítimas antes que o criminoso ataque novamente. Ao mesmo tempo, a sentença de morte com data marcada desperta as memórias mais sombrias de Wolf, e o detetive teme que os assassinatos tenham mais a ver com ele – e com seu passado – do que qualquer um possa imaginar.Com protagonistas imperfeitos, carismáticos e únicos, aliados a um ritmo veloz e uma deliciosa pitada de humor negro, Boneco de pano é o que há de mais promissor na literatura policial contemporânea.

“A gruesome delight! Daniel Cole’s thriller Ragdoll, in which gritty detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes comes upon a single corpse stitched together out of six bodies, had me flipping pages furiously. It’s an impressive debut, dark, propulsive, and surprisingly funny.”

—Gregg Hurwitz, bestselling author of Orphan X

William Fawkes, a controversial detective known as The Wolf, has just been reinstated to his post after he was suspended for assaulting a vindicated suspect. Still under psychological evaluation, Fawkes returns to the force eager for a big case. When his former partner and friend, Detective Emily Baxter, calls him to a crime scene, he’s sure this is it: the body is made of the dismembered parts of six victims, sewn together like a puppet—a corpse that becomes known as “The Ragdoll.”

Fawkes is tasked with identifying the six victims, but that gets dicey when his reporter ex-wife anonymously receives photographs from the crime scene, along with a list of six names, and the dates on which the Ragdoll Killer plans to murder them.

The final name on the list is Fawkes.

Baxter and her trainee partner, Alex Edmunds, hone in on figuring out what links the victims together before the killer strikes again. But for Fawkes, seeing his name on the list sparks a dark memory, and he fears that the catalyst for these killings has more to do with him—and his past—than anyone realizes.

With a breakneck pace, a twisty plot, and a wicked sense of humor, Ragdoll announces the arrival of the hottest new brand in crime fiction.

Έξι θύματα
Απέναντι από το διαμέρισμα του αστυνόμου Γουίλιαμ Φοκς, γνωστού με το παρατσούκλι Γουλφ, που έχει πρόσφατα επανέλθει στο Σώμα μετά από εγκλεισμό σε ψυχιατρική κλινική, εντοπίζεται μια ανθρώπινη μαριονέτα που αποτελείται από τα μέλη έξι δολοφονηθέντων ανθρώπων.

Ένα πτώμα
Ο δολοφόνος Μαριονετίστας, μέσω της πρώην συζύγου του Γουλφ, που είναι δημοσιογράφος, στέλνει φωτογραφίες από τον τόπο του εγκλήματος, καθώς και μια λίστα με έξι επόμενους στόχους και τις ημερομηνίες εκτέλεσής τους. Τελευταίος στη λίστα είναι ο ίδιος ο Γουλφ…

Κανένας ύποπτος
Ενώ τα ΜΜΕ τρελαίνονται και αναμεταδίδουν και την παραμικρή λεπτομέρεια σχετικά με την υπόθεση, η Αστυνομία καλείται να ταυτοποιήσει τα θύματα που αποτελούν τη Μαριονέτα, να προστατεύσει τους στοχοποιημένους πολίτες, να εντοπίσει τον δολοφόνο και να σταματήσει τη δράση του μέσα σε δεκαπέντε μέρες.

Μια κούρσα με τον χρόνο, ενώ όλος ο κόσμος παρακολουθεί με κομμένη την ανάσα.
