Klappentext

'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

Zusammenfassung

As this riveting tour-de-force opens, the police already want to talk to the photographer Cass Neary about a mysterious death she was involved with previously, but before they can bring her in, Cass accepts a job offer from overseas and hops on a plane.

In Helsinki, she authenticates a series of disturbing but stunning images taken by a famous fashion photographer who has cut himself off from the violent Nordic music scene where he first made his reputation. Paid off by her shady employer, she buys a one-way ticket to Reykjavik, in search of a lover from her own dark past.

But when the fashion photographer's mutilated corpse is discovered back in Finland, Cass finds herself sucked into a vortex of ancient myth and betrayal, vengeance and serial murder, set against a bone-splintering soundtrack of black metal and the terrifying beauty of the sunless Icelandic wilderness.

In this eagerly awaited sequel to the award-winning Generation Loss, Cass Neary finds her own worst fears confirmed: it's always darkest before it turns completely black.
