The journey was begun because of a father's love for his son, a journey driven by hope and anticipation, and by a belief that there had to be an answer.
Part classic noir thriller, part mind-bending fantasy, "The Resurrectionist" is a wild ride into a territory where nothing is as it appears. It is the story of Sweeney, a druggist by trade, and his son, Danny, the victim of an accident that has left him in a persistent coma. Hoping for a miracle, they have come to the forbidding, fortresslike Peck Clinic, whose doctors claim to have "resurrected" other patients who were lost in the void. What Sweeney comes to realize, however, is that the real cure for his son's condition may lie in Limbo, a fantasy comic book world into which his son had been drawn at the time of his accident. Plunged into the intrigue that envelops the clinic, Sweeny's search for answers leads to sinister back alleys, brutal dead ends, and terrifying corners of darkness and mystery.
Jack O'Connell has crafted a mesmerizing novel about stories and what they can do for and "to" those who create them and those who consume them. About the nature of consciousness and the power of the unknown. About psychotic bikers, mad neurologists, and circus freaks wandering in search of salvation. About loss and grief and rage. And, ultimately, about forgiveness and the depth of our need to extend it and receive it. Gripping, startling, mind-bending, and ultimately incredibly tender, "The Resurrectionist" is a masterpiece of invention that takes the familiar and makes it wholly new again.
