The Laughterhouse

The Laughterhouse

By Paul Cleave, Paul Cleave

The latest from best-selling international crime writer Paul Cleave sees Detective Theodore Tate return to his first crime scene in a desperate attempt to find three missing girls and their father.

From the author of the international best-selling thrillers The Cleaner, The Killing Hour, Cemetery Lake, Blood Men and Collecting Cooper
A gripping new thriller from crime writing sensation Paul Cleave

Theodore Tate never forgot his first crime scene – ten-year-old Jessica found dead in the 'Laughterhouse', an old abandoned slaughterhouse with the 'S' spray-painted over. The killer was found and arrested. Justice was served. Or was it?

Fifteen years later, there's a new killer on the loose and he has a list of people who were involved in Jessica's murder case, among them Doctor Stanton, a man with three young daughters. 

If Tate is going to help them, he has to find the connection between the killer, the 'Laughterhouse' and a growing list of murder victims. And he needs to figure it out fast, because Stanton and his daughters have been kidnapped, and Stanton is being forced to make an impossible decision: which one of his daughters is to die first.
'Piano wire-taut plotting, Tate's heart-wrenching losses and forlorn hopes, and Cleave's unusually perceptive gaze into the maw of a killer's madness make this a standout chapter in his detective's rocky road to redemption.' Publishers Weekly
