A skin-blistering crime novel, as edgy and black as dried blood on a moonlit night. Robert Crais
'A skin-blistering crime novel as edgy and black as dried blood on a moonlit night' Robert Crais
Before the New York police can question photographer Cass Neary about a mysterious death she was involved with in Maine, she accepts a job in Finland - far away from her troubles in the US.
In Helsinki, she authenticates a series of disturbing yet beautiful images taken by a reclusive fashion photographer who has distanced himself from the violent Nordic music scene where he first made his reputation. But his body is discovered, mutilated, soon after her visit - and Cass is inexorably drawn into a dangerous criminal underworld.
Set against a bone-splintering soundtrack of black metal and the terrifying beauty of the sunless Scandinavian wilderness, Available Dark is a chilling story of betrayal, vengeance and serial murder.
'Elizabeth Hand takes us on a dangerous and drug-fuelled trip through a world of art fetishists, death metal bands, and Nordic blood cults. This book disturbs and delights.' Paul Doiron, author of The Poacher's Son
