Rate this:
Part classic noir thriller, part mind-bending fantasy, The Resurrectionist is a wild ride into a territory where nothing is as it appears. It is the story of Sweeney, a druggist by trade, and his son, Danny, the victim of an accident that has left him in a persistent coma. Hoping for a miracle, they have come to the fortresslike Peck Clinic, whose doctors claim to have "resurrected" two patients who were lost in the void.

This book kept me guessing right up to the end. An entertaining story with many layers to explore and ponder.

Although the description of a parallel story from a comic book called Limbo would make you think this is a YA story, it is not.

Several scenes of explicit sex make this an adult rated book.
