JACK O'CONNELL: THE RESURRECTIONIST 7pm Jack O'Connell, "the cyberpunk Dashiell Hammett," visits with his latest, The Resurrectionist. Equal parts classic noir thriller and mind-bending fantasy, it tells the story of Sweeney, a druggist by trade, and his son, Danny, the victim of an accident that has left him in a coma. Hoping for a miracle, they have come to the fortress—like Peck Clinic, whose doctors claim already to have "resurrected" two patients. What Sweeney comes to realize, though, is that the cure to his son's condition may lie in Limbo, a fantasy comic book into which his son had been drawn at the time of his accident. James Ellroy calls The Resurrectionist "a brilliant breakthrough novel" that will "jazz you, floor you, grab you, shake you and leave you hung out to dry." (booksense)
