WELCOME TO THE SPACES IN BETWEEN
Originally published in 2012, Todd Keisling’s The Liminal Man continues the existential journey of everyman, Donovan Candle, as he works alongside his brother to track a sadistic, otherworldly killer. Bloodshot Books is proud to present this revised and expanded edition, featuring the second installment of Keisling’s all-new afterword series, “Who is Donovan Candle?”
A year and a half after the horrific events of A Life Transparent, Donovan Candle has worked to redefine himself and find his place in the world. He has a new job, he’s finished his novel, and his wife, Donna, has a baby on the way. Life for Mr. Candle is good, or so he wants to believe—yet the threat of the Monochrome is ever present, and lately, is manifesting in troubling ways.
Working as a private investigator alongside his brother, Donovan witnesses a startling number of Missing Persons cases occurring around the city. Those missing are all in their early twenties, there one day and gone the next, vanished from their jobs, their homes, their families. The signs are too familiar for Donovan to ignore, and when several young men and women are discovered brutally murdered, his worst fears are confirmed.
At first, he’s hesitant to act, but when Donna’s nephew is abducted by the suspected killer, Donovan realizes he has no choice but to face his fears. This time there is more at stake than his own existence, and doing the right thing may come at a terrible price…
