Summary: From deep within the high security ward of a mental hospital, the Ripper plots revenge against Inspector Zinc Chandler of Special X.
When Chandler responds to a bizarre murder at a hotel in Vancouver-a Hollywood producer found suspended upside down like the Hanged Man card in a Tarot deck-the Mountie becomes enmeshed in a psychotic chain of events. Chandler time-travels from Jack the Ripper's London in 1888 to a deadly car chase with guns blazing in the streets of Vancouver. Then he travels from Ted Bundy's house in Seattle to the Thirteen Steps to Hell in Maltby Cemetery, and finally to a nail-biting climax in the cannibal isles of the South Pacific, where the Mountie must win the ultimate game of survivor.
Bed of Nails marks Slade's return to the macabre landscape of his second novel, Ripper, selected by the Horror Writers' Association as one of the top 40 horror novels of all time.
