The Providence Rider by Robert McCammon
First Time Ever In Trade Paperback!
In the winter of 1703, Matthew Corbett’s Manhattan neighborhood is shaken by explosions. Someone is trying—and trying very hard—to get his attention. That someone is a shadowy figure from Matthew’s past: the elusive Professor Fell. The professor, it turns out, has a problem of his own, one that requires the exclusive services of Matthew Corbett.
In response, Matthew travels from New York to Pendulum Island in the distant Bermudas, encountering a truly Dickensian assortment of memorable, often grotesque, antagonists. The result is both an exquisitely constructed novel of suspense and a meticulous recreation of a bygone era. Filled with twists, turns, and an almost tangible sense of place, The Providence Rider is historical thriller writing at its finest by New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Robert McCammon.
Reviews and Praise:
“Problem-solver Matthew Corbett’s past comes back to haunt him in McCammon’s intriguing fourth historical thriller… Once again, McCammon provides a colorful and well-researched depiction of colonial America, enlived by a rogues’ gallery of well-drawn characters. Hair’s-breadth escapes and the teasing promise that characters who appear to have been disposed of might resurface in future adventures make this a rollicking good yarn.”
— Publishers Weekly
“Wow, McCammon is back with a vengeance, and he’s riding high with The Providence Rider. Historical, strange, creepy, and engaging as all of McCammon’s work is. I highly recommend it.”
— Joe R. Lansdale
“The Providence Rider is an absolutely brilliant historical thriller that will keep you turning the pages at a feverish pace as Mr. McCammon takes you along on a grand adventure full of action, intrigue, violence, love and friendship…”
— Famous Monsters of Filmland
“This popular series takes us to a long forgotten time with characters who never fail to entertain.”
— The Florida Times-Union
