About the author

Daniel Cole ist 33 Jahre alt und hat bisher als Sanitäter, Tierschützer und für die britische Seenotrettung gearbeitet. Sein Drang, Menschen zu retten, entspringt möglicherweise dem schlechten Gewissen wegen der großen Zahl der Figuren, die er beim Schreiben umbringt. Er lebt im sonnigen Bournemouth in Südengland und ist meist am Strand anzutreffen, obwohl er eigentlich an seinem nächsten Buch schreiben sollte. "Ragdoll" ist sein Debüt und wurde bereits in 34 Länder verkauft, die Filmrechte sind optioniert.

“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.

UM CORPO

SEIS VÍTIMAS

Com protagonistas imperfeitos, carismáticos e únicos, aliados a um ritmo veloz e a um delicioso humor negro, Boneca de Trapos é o mais promissor dos thrillers na literatura policial contemporânea.

William Fawkes, um controverso detective conhecido por "Wolf", acabou de ser reintegrado no seu posto após ter sido suspenso por agressão a um suspeito. Ainda sob avaliação psicológica, Fawkes regressa ao activo, ansioso por um caso importante. Quando se encontra com a sua antiga colega e amiga, a inspectora Emily Baxter, num local de crime, tem a certeza de que é aquele o grande caso: o corpo que encontram é formado pelos membros de seis vítimas, suturados de modo a formar uma marioneta, que ficou conhecida como "Boneca de Trapos".

Fawkes é incumbido de identificar as seis vítimas, mas tudo se complica quando a sua ex-mulher, que é repórter, recebe uma carta anónima com fotografias do local do crime, acompanhada de uma lista na qual constam os nomes de seis pessoas e as datas em que

o homicida tenciona assassiná-las.

O último nome da lista é o de Fawkes.

A sentença de morte com data marcada desperta as memórias mais sombrias de Wolf. O detective teme que os assassinatos tenham mais a ver com ele - e com o seu passado - do que qualquer um possa imaginar.

Sobre Boneca de trapos:
«Uma estreia contundente. Cole usa a tensão crescente e o mistério da verdadeira identidade do assassino para criar uma narrativa arrebatadora.»
Publishers Weekly

«Um thriller tenso, dramático, com viragens muito inteligentes que o surpreenderão. Se gosta de autores como Jo Nesbø, Karin Fossum e Henning Mankell, vai adorar este livro.»
Scrutton Bland

«A estreia mais emocionante desde há muito.»
Heat Magazine

«Há ecos do filme Seven neste vilão tão omnipotente.»

The Daily Mail

«Uma estreia muito esperada, que se converterá claramente no melhor thriller do ano.»
Metro

«Um ritmo vertiginoso. O primeiro romance de Cole oferece um novo olhar sobre as histórias de detectives ingleses.»
