"Pure Parnell Hall - wit, intensity, sharp dialog and vivid characters ... maybe his best yet." Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

A relentless, darkly-funny thriller by Parnell Hall, the New York Times bestselling author of the Puzzle Lady series. Two killers are leaving a trail of mutilated corpses across Manhattan... while hunting a mysterious man with a name so common, they may never run out of victims. They are pursued by a disgraced cop, dying of cancer and desperate for redemption. Caught in the middle, but unaware of it, are a tabloid reporter and the cast of a troubled Broadway play facing a terrifying battle for their lives.

"Chasing Jack is what you'll find if you look up 'Black Humor' in your Funkin' Wagnalls. The wit is savage, the pace relentless. Parnell Hall, always outstanding, has never been better." Lawrence Block

"Parnell Hall has long been one of my favorite crime fiction writers.  Chasing Jack is his best yet." Harlan Coben

"Parnell Hall is a pro's pro's pro. No one else creates characters as deftly or puts them in heart-in-your-mouth situations with such economy. Read Chasing Jack once for the joy of it and a second time for a lesson in how thriller writing is done." SJ Rozan

"Parnell Hall, a master of the genre, is on fire in Chasing Jack, a bloody, twisty tale set in the tabloid world of night time Manhattan. Required reading for mystery fans." Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author

"A fast-moving tale with a light touch. Crime fiction doesn’t get much more entertaining than this.” Booklist
