"A spellbinding crime novel, The Mercy Killers is also a brilliantly thoughtful saga..." —Washington Post

From a fierce new voice in American literature comes a psychological drama that combines gripping suspense and unforgettable characters in a story of murder, love, violent passion, and moral responsibility.

LISA REARDON is the author of half a dozen plays and two novels, Billy Dead and Blameless. She received her MFA from the Yale School of Drama and lives with her husband in Chicago.

“Reardon has a wicked ear for dialogue…she keeps the action churning away in this low-pitched wail of a novel.” —Chicago Tribune

“Reardon’s haunting, liquor-soaked story reveals the war that is daily living, even as it shines a light into the secret hearts of McGurk’s regulars.” —Publishers Weekly
