Subterranean Press has announced that they are reprinting The Providence Rider in trade hardcover! Copies have been scarce lately and command high prices, so this reprint, along with their recent reprint of Mister Slaughter, is very welcome!

Copies are expected to ship in April 2019.

Here’s the Subterranean announcement:

We’re happy to report that Robert McCammon’s The Providence Rider is returning to the world with a small trade hardcover reprint. We’ve seen copies of this entry in Matthew Corbett’s adventures climb in price on the secondary market, and wanted to offer a bit more reasonably priced alternative.

The Providence Rider remains my favorite of the Corbett novels, as McCammon gathers an extensive cast of cutthroats and bad-doers under one roof, then drops Matthew right in the middle.

About the Book:

The Providence Rider is the fourth standalone installment in the extraordinary series of historical thrillers featuring Matthew Corbett, professional problem solver. The narrative begins in the winter of 1703, with Matthew still haunted by his lethal encounter with notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter. When an unexplained series of explosions rocks his Manhattan neighborhood, Matthew finds himself forced to confront a new and unexpected problem. Someone is trying-and trying very hard-to get his attention. That someone is a shadowy figure from out of 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.

The ensuing narrative moves swiftly and gracefully from the emerging metropolis of New York City to Pendulum Island in the remote Bermudas. In the course of his journey, Matthew encounters a truly Dickensian assortment of memorable, often grotesque, antagonists. These include Sirki, the giant, deceptively soft-spoken East Indian killer, Dr. Jonathan Gentry, an expert in exotic potions with a substance abuse problem of his own, the beautiful but murderous Aria Chillany, and, of course, the master manipulator and “Emperor of Crime” on two continents, Professor Fell himself. The result is both an exquisitely constructed novel of suspense and a meticulous recreation of a bygone era.

Trade Hardcover Edition: $45

Here’s a bit of praise for the novel from Publishers Weekly:

“Problem-solver Matthew Corbett’s past comes back to haunt him in McCammon’s intriguing fourth historical thriller (after 2010’s Mister Slaughter). Shanghaied in 1704 from Manhattan to Pendulum Island, the Bermuda home of his nemesis, criminal mastermind Professor Fell, Matthew is tasked with finding out who among Fell’s criminal confederates is leaking to England Fell’s plans to sell a devastating new type of weapon to the nation’s European enemies. 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.”

Subterranean Press has posted a new McCammon update:

As another step in celebrating the release of Robert McCammon’s newest Matthew Corbett historical thriller, The Providence Rider (SubPress|Amazon|BN.com), we’ve put the ebook of his demon spawn first novel, Baal, on sale for only $2.99. You can pick it up from the usual suspects (Amazon|BN.com). It looks as though Kobo is trailing behind in resetting the price, but I’m sure they’ll catch up soon.

Jumping back to The Providence Rider again, it’s now racked up 15 five star Amazon reviews, with no dissenters. We’re inordinately pleased at the response it’s received from reviewers and readers alike. This (literal, though eventually resolved) cliffhanger of a novel is the perfect place to join Matthew’s deadly game of chess with Professor Fell, the self-styled “Emperor of Crime”.

Finally, while he was in our offices inscribing copies of his new novel, Rick also set his hand to the signature pages for our upcoming signed, limited edition of his classic novel, Bethany’s Sin, which is right on schedule for release this fall.
