The Tindalos Asset (Tinfoil Dossier #3)
The Signalman returns in The Tindalos Asset.
“Her stories saturate the mind with color...There is simply nothing out there quite like her.”—The New York Times on Caitlín R. Kiernan
A rundown apartment in Koreatown. A Los Angeles winter. A strung out, worn out, wrecked and used government agent is scraped up off the pavement, cleaned up, and reluctantly sent out into battle one last time.
Ellison Nicodemo has seen and done terrible things. She thought her only remaining quest was for oblivion. Then the Signalman comes calling. He wants to learn if she can stop the latest apocalypse. Ellison, once a unique and valuable asset, can barely remember why she ever fought the good fight.
Still, you don't say no to the Signalman, and the time has come to face her fears and the nightmare forces that almost destroyed her. Only Ellison can unleash the hound of Tindalos. . .
Praise For The Tindalos Asset (Tinfoil Dossier #3)…
"With this chilling work, Kiernan again proves her mastery of the genre."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
Praise for Caitlín R. Kiernan
“Kiernan’s writing — starkly visual, tongue in cheek and disturbingly visceral — carries the day.” —The New York Times
“Kiernan's subtly haunting voice draws the reader in.” —Publishers Weekly
“Caitlín R Kiernan is one of those writers that you can’t believe isn’t a household name. Her writing is fantastic and her stories are dark, complex and wonderful.” — Book Riot
“Caitlín Kiernan is one of the great stylists of horror fiction, and this novella is a triumph. It bristles with energy and ideas — ideas that seem to spill off the page — and everything is underpinned by a sense of cosmic bleakness that took my breath away. I fell in love with the characters. The story pulled me along by the nose. I honestly didn't want it to end.” —Gary McMahon, author of the Concrete Grove trilogy
