Overview
"The Dead Detective is William Heffernan's first novel in seven years, and wherever he's been, he hasn't forgotten how to write a good, gritty police procedural . . . This edgy police drama succeeds in capturing the hysteria the grips Tampa residents when a celebrity criminal . . . is found dead in a cyprus swamp with her throat cut and the word 'Evil' carved into her forehead."
--New York Times Book Review

"The Dead Detective is a meaty story that offers an intriguing and conflicted protagonist, a darkly fascinating victim, solid police procedural detail, a knowing look at the Tampa Bay area and its politics, an unlikely murderer, and a creepy denouement that hints that Harry protagonist] will be back."
--Booklist

"In his first new novel in seven years . . . Heffernan delivers a readable, tidy police procedural that echoes any number of popular television series, from The Mentalist to Criminal Minds, whose many fans will find this series debut enjoyable."
--Library Journal

"After a lengthy hiatus, Edgar-winner Heffernan makes a welcome return ... Tough, troubled Harry Doyle will keep readers in line."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Heffernan is a master of scene, setting, characterizations, plot, and dialogue."
--Nelson DeMille

Harry Doyle was murdered as a ten-year-old child and brought back to life by two Tampa cops. Twenty years later he has dedicated his life to putting killers behind bars as a homicide detective who has the unwanted ability to hear the postmortem whispers of murder victims. Dubbed "The Dead Detective" by his fellow cops, Doyle now faces his most difficult case--a beautiful murder victim who was a notorious child molester. It is a case that will shake Harry to his very core.

WILLIAM HEFFERNAN, a three-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, is the author of fifteen novels, including such bestsellers as The Corsican and The Dinosaur Club (a New York Times bestseller).
