Feeling unJon Mote--grad school dropout and serial failure--has been hired to investigate the murder of his erstwhile mentor, Richard Pratt, a star in the firmament of literary theory. Feeling unequal to the task, Mote skitters on the edge of madness, trying to stifle the increasingly threatening voices in his head. His only source of hope is the dogged love of his developmentally disabled sister, Judy, who serves as cheerleader, critic, and moral compass. "Death Comes for the Deconstructionist" follows Mote and his sister through the streets and neighborhoods of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota--from crime scenes to the halls of academe. Mote's investigation uncovers a series of suspects--including the victim's wife, mistress, and intellectual rivals. Along the way he stumbles onto Pratt's terrible secret, one that prompts the discovery of an equally dark mystery from his own past. These revelations hasten Mote's descent into darkness, putting both him and Judy at grave risk. "Death Comes for the Deconstructionist" is a tragicomic mystery, a detective story that is at once suspenseful, provocative, and emotionally resonant. It asks not only ""whodunit"" but whether truth is ultimately something we create rather than discover. equal to the task, Mote skitters on the edge of madness, trying to stifle the increasingly threatening voices in his head.

""Daniel Taylor blends a passion for theology, civil rights, and the saving grace of story in a mystery involving an unlikely pair of underdog investigators--the psychologically broken Jon Mote and his ever hopeful, developmentally challenged older sister, Judy. Known primarily for his nonfiction books, Taylor displays the natural skills of a crime writer in his debut novel set in the world of academia. His plot begins conventionally, but eventually evolves into something much deeper. Death Comes for the Deconstructionist is a fascinating exploration of what is ultimately good and true, a perfect choice for Slant's first offering in the detective genre."" --Naomi Hirahara, Edgar Award-winning author of the Mas Arai and Officer Ellie Rush mysteries ""This whodunit from Dan Taylor is a cause for celebration. His Jon Mote rivals Harry Bosch, and Taylor's ventures into literature, religion, and notions of progress shine, challenge, and stun. With his remarkable sidekick, Judy, Jon Mote, ""an expert on things he wished he didn't know,"" is not simply looking into a puzzling death. He is exploring his own odds of finding transformative life. Great books are those that force readers to reexamine the very ground on which they stand. Death Comes for the Deconstructionist is such a book--a luminous performance."" --Dale Brown, Director of Buechner Institute ""In Death Comes for the Deconstructionist, Daniel Taylor has written not only a highly engaging murder mystery but also a me
