Mister Slaughter [electronic resource]

McCammon, Robert R.2020
The world of Colonial America comes vibrantly to life in this masterful new historical thriller by Robert McCammon. Mister Slaughter opens in the emerging metropolis of New York City in 1702 and proceeds to take both Matthew and the listener on an unforgettable journey of horror, violence and personal discovery.The journey begins when Matthew, now an apprentice problem solver for the London-based Herrald Agency, accepts an unusual and hazardous commission. Together with his colleague, Hudson Greathouse, he agrees to escort the notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter from an asylum outside Philadelphia to the docks of New York. Along the way, Slaughter makes his captors a surprising – and extremely tempting – offer. Their response to this offer will set in motion a series of astonishing, ultimately catastrophic events.Mister Slaughter is at once a classic portrait of an archetypal serial killer and an exquisitely detailed account of a fledgling nation still in the process of inventing itself. Suspenseful, illuminating, never less than compulsively readable, it is, by any measure, an extraordinary achievement, the largest accomplishment to date from one of our most gifted – and necessary – writers.
