The Half Dead

by Garry Disher

The shadow of the Black Hall broods over the City of the Half Dead — a place where almost all the men and boys have lost a hand, an arm, a leg in mysterious accidents — or are they accidents? Renny, a teenage loner living rough, stumbles upon the Hall’s grisly secrets.
