Overview

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 . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

★ 08/31/2020

The exceptional third supernatural thriller in Kiernan’s Tin Foil Dossier series (after Black Helicopters) evokes Frank Belknap Long’s 1929 story “The Hound of Tindalos” (regarded as the first contribution by another writer to H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos) to deliver an audacious tale of earthshaking cosmic espionage. Los Angeles-based “occult assassin” Ellison Nicodemo has become a dysfunctional drug addict after harrowing experiences in the field. Still, the Signalman, an enigmatic officer of a shadow government security agency, taps Ellison to take on Jehosheba Talog, a Welsh woman with prodigious supernatural powers. Kiernan builds on the cosmic horrors of previous installments as Jehosheba’s activities on behalf of the monstrous Mother Hydra unleash a tidal wave of uncanny phenomena that tears at the very fabric of reality. Ellison’s episodic attempts to stop this tide provide tantalizing glimpses into a deliciously dark world, inviting the reader to envision the broader, more terrifying context in which the events of the story unfold. With this chilling work, Kiernan again proves her mastery of the genre. (Oct.)

From the Publisher

"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
