The Poison Artist

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
'I haven't read anything so terrifying since Red Dragon' Stephen King

Imagine an updated Vertigo: darker, more scary but just as hypnotically seductive. A dark psychological crime thriller for fans of Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island.



Selected for BBC Radio 2 Book Club with Simon Mayo.

Toxicologist Caleb Maddox has two puzzles to solve. What connects the series of dead bodies found floating in San Francisco Bay? And why is Emmeline, the strange and beautiful woman he met in a secluded bar, so secretive about her past? One thing is certain: finding the the answers could be the last thing Caleb ever does.

Praise for this book

"Jonathan Moore has written a wickedly smart, emotionally complex novel that will haunt you long after you turn the last page. Whether you find it seductively terrifying or terrifyingly seductive, in my mind, The Poison Artist is better than Hitchcock." - Lou Berney

"Patient, stylish and incredibly suspenseful." - Lee Child

"Magnificent, thoroughly unnerving . . . I dare you to look away." - Justin Cronin

"An electrifying read... I haven't read anything so terrifying since Red Dragon." - Stephen King

"The Poison Artist is an elegant, gripping, hair-raising gothic chiller, a wicked mix of Poe, The Silence of the Lambs, and Vertigo. Settle in for a long night of reading - once this one grabs you, it doesn't let go." - William Landay

"With The Poison Artist, Jonathan Moore has given us a brilliant debut thriller, confident, mesmerizing, edgy and very cool. So much happens on every page, it's almost dizzying. Hitchcock should come back from the grave and film this story." - Howard Norman
