The New Jersey State Police had started calling him Howdy Doody, after the famous TV puppet of the 1950s. Three people killed in northern New Jersey, then three in Manhattan and another in the Bronx, in a thirteen-month period. And all of them hung up with strings attached to their limbs, like puppets. Finally the murderer was caught in New York City. Or so it seems-until State Police detective Mo Ford finds another victim, killed and arranged in exactly the same way. Is it a copycat crime, or did the police catch the wrong man? Mo's theory about what happened soon expands to involve U.S. intelligence agencies and a horrific experiment with human beings. With so many forces behind the scenes, who is the real puppet master? Daniel Hecht is the author of the bestselling Skull Session and Puppets; The Babel Effect; and two novels in the Cree Black series, City of Masks and Land of Echoes. He lives in Montpelier, Vermont. A Times of London bestseller A WH Smith Read of the Week "Part medical investigation, part Gothic chiller, with a singularly explosive ending."-Mail on Sunday "Four stars! Puppets is a fast, intriguing story bolstered by real substance in its study of the dodgy things governments do...Combined with the mind games of a classic manhunt and a splash of romance, it's got pretty much all you could ask for. Excellent stuff!"-Daily Mirror The thrilling prequel to the bestselling Skull Session, published for the first time in the United States.
