Summary (From the publisher):

Bizarre messages found carved into the flesh of two corpses in Mobile, Alabama, have launched a special unit devoted to psychotic crimes. They're also launching Detective Carson Ryder into a nightmare.

Ryder's secret investigative weapon is his own family's terrifing past--and the shadowy counsel of his own brother, a brutal and taunting killer who knowns all too well how madmen think.

And as the body count grows, so does Ryder's inescapable fear that the killer is as intimate--and as close--as the next victim.

Blurbs:
  • ""The Hundredth Man" has a crackerjack plot and wonderfully original rapid-fire prose. Jack Kerley is a writer to watch. And read."" David Baldacci
  • ""Kerley's first novel is explosively good, a nuanced look at the dark underbelly of contemporary society that reads like a cross between Thomas Harris and F. Scott Fitzgerald."" The Baltimore Sun
  • ""The Hundredth Man" is a narrative locomotive of a first novel. Kerley jacks up the tension effectively with nicely placed jumps between CArson's narration and the tortured thoughts of the killer, building to an all-stops-out climax...Powerful...Compelling...Kerley's plot is a treasure chest of interlocked pieces.""
