What they’re saying about Dismember:

Dismember’s a fast-paced grindhouse-movie of a book with plenty of unexpected twists and turns and a fresh new crazy for a villain.  The late Richard Laymon would have been grinning ear to ear.”

—Jack Ketchum, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Off Season and The Girl Next Door

“With Dismember, Daniel Pyle joins the select group of authors who can provide real chills and genuine surprises.  Taut, weird, and intriguing.”

—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The Joe Ledger Series

“The tourniquet-tight plot and constant suspense keeps the pages flying. A solid, suspenseful thriller that enables readers to envision the movie it could become.”
