Overview
A Texas map marked with three red dots like drops of blood. A serial killer who claims to have dementia. A mysterious young woman who wants answers. What could go wrong?

FINALIST FOR THE ITW THRILLER AWARD - "Fast and furious . . . You'll never see what's coming."--The Washington Post

Years ago, her sister Rachel vanished. Now she is almost certain the man who took Rachel sits in the passenger seat beside her. He claims to have dementia and no memory of murdering girls across Texas in a string of places where he shot eerie pictures. To find the truth, she proposes a dangerous idea: a ten-day road trip with a possible serial killer to examine cold cases linked to his haunting photographs. Is he a liar or a broken old man? Is he a pathological con artist--or is she? You won't see the final, terrifying twist spinning your way until the very last mile.

Praise for Paper Ghosts

" An] artful and elegiac psychological thriller . . . riveting."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

" Paper Ghosts] elevates the often tawdry genre of the serial killer novel to a work of art."--Sunday Express (UK)

"Texas has yet again bred a major American noir writer."--D Magazine

" Heaberlin has] developed a distinctive literary voice, one that is on full display in Paper Ghosts."--Houston Chronicle

"Entertainingly unnerving."--The Dallas Morning News

"Strong characterisation, haunting images, a wonderful sense of place, and some dark comedy make this travelogue-cum-psychological thriller well worth the read."--The Guardian
