Baker & Taylor
The New Jersey State Police believe that they finally have in custody a serial killer known as Howdy Doody, after his penchant for hanging up his victims with strings attached to his limbs, until State Police detective Mo Ford stumbles upon another victim, killed and arranged in the same way, and must determine whether they have the wrong man in custody or a bizarre copycat crime. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
The thrilling prequel to the bestselling Skull Session, published for the first time in the United States.

The New Jersey State Police had started calling him Howdy Doody, after the famous TV puppet of the 1950s. Three people killed in northern New Jersey, then three in Manhattan and another in the Bronx, in a thirteen-month period. And all of them hung up with strings attached to their limbs, like puppets. Finally the murderer was caught in New York City. Or so it seems--until State Police detective Mo Ford finds another victim, killed and arranged in exactly the same way. Is it a copycat crime, or did the police catch the wrong man? Mo's theory about what happened soon expands to involve U.S. intelligence agencies and a horrific experiment with human beings. With so many forces behind the scenes, who is the real puppet master?
A Times of London bestseller * A WH Smith Read of the Week

The police called him Howdy Doody, after the famous TV puppet of the 1950s: three victims in New Jersey, three in Manhattan, another in the Bronx, hung up with strings attached to their limbs, like puppets. The thirteen-month spree ended dramatically when the New York police caught the murderer in the act. Case closed - or so it seems until state police detective Mo Ford finds another victim, killed and arranged in exactly the same way. Is it a copycat crime, or did the police catch the wrong man? As Mo investigates, the accumulating evidence hints at something far more frightening - a deeply buried secret involving U.S. intelligence agencies and a horrific experiment with human beings. With so many forces behind the scenes, who is the real puppet master?
