Dub Walker #2



Hippocratic oath meets hypocritical practice in D. P. Lyle’s exciting new book, HOT LIGHTS, COLD STEEL.  Dub Walker, med school dropout and forensic criminologist, follows a trail of discarded bodies in this engrossing tale of medicine and murder, told in a witty tongue-in-cheek style that humors as it horrifies. A renowned physician himself, Lyle is a master of the medical thriller. Your prescription is simple, and highly enjoyable: Read this book---Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of THE BOOK OF SPIES

With HOT LIGHTS, COLD STEEL Doug Lyle has written the ultimate serial killer novel. Think Silence of the Lambs on steroids with a fiendishly brutal villain every bit the equal of Hannibal Lecter fashioned in the polished touch of Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels. Accurate to a T and utterly bone-chilling, this is everything a thriller should be and more---Jon Land, bestselling author of STRONG JUSTICE

With enough cool guys, bad guys and good guys for two novels, Hot Lights, Cold Steel is a great thrill ride. Doug Lyle keeps you guessing on who to root for and how a sinister plot is all going to end. A terrific story by a gifted writer. One of the best thrillers I’ve read this year---Robert Dugoni, New Your Times Bestselling Author of MURDER ONE

Dub Walker is tough, funny, and smart, the perfect hero for the nail-biting intensity of Hot Lights, Cold Steel. If this one doesn't make your spine tingle, have someone who's breathing check your pulse---Jan Burke Edgar-winning author of BONES, THE MESSENGER, and DISTURBANCE

A gritty and grisly tale of serial murder, told in the edgy style of classic noir but powered with a 21st century plot. Dr. Doug Lyle delivers a scalpel-sharp thriller---PJ Parrish, New York Times bestselling author of THE KILLING SONG.

A taut, hard-to-put-down, emotionally-satisfying thriller. Fabs of James Lee Burke and Lee Child will be pleased with Lyle's Dub Walker. Really, a damn good read!---Andy Gross, New York Times Best-Selling Author of THE BLUE ZONE and RECKLESS

If this thriller doesn’t give you goosebumps and nightmares, check your pulse.  Bone-chilling doesn’t begin to describe the horrors within. Thank heaven for Dub Walker, a tireless investigator with an ear for music and a knack for looking deep into the criminal psyche. I can sleep at night knowing he’s on the case---T. Jefferson Parker, Author of THE BORDER LORDS
