The Screaming Room
John Driscoll has laid the ghosts of his past to rest. He's ready to start over--both personally and as a New York City homicide detective. But it seems that a serial killer has other plans for Driscoll.
The victims' bodies are found, brutally mutilated and carefully arranged. Someone has displayed the corpses for the world to see: on a Ferris wheel; in a dinosaur diorama; on a bridge--grotesque visions to all except for the depraved killer, who considers them masterpieces. These blood rituals spell out a message to Driscoll. And they are just the beginning. . .
Driscoll's investigation will lead him down the darkest of journeys, toward an evil beyond his worst nightmares. In a hellish landscape conceived by the all-too-clever mind of a twisted schemer, Driscoll must play a killer's deadly game. It's up to him to save his city--or die trying.

"A relentless and harrowing ride. . .O'Callaghan peels back the layers of the human soul with informed surety."--Gayle Lynds
"From its chilling opening to its slam-bang conclusion, Bone Thief delivers the goods."

"Sharp as a scalpel."
"This one should be read in the light of day."
