Still reeling from a brutal dismemberment, detective Kline is forcibly recruited to solve a murder inside a religious cult that takes literally the New Testament idea that you should cut off your hand if it offends you. Armed only with his gun, his wits, and a gift for self-preservation, Kline must navigate a gauntlet of lies, threats, and misinformation. All too soon he discovers that the stakes are higher than he thought and that his survival depends on an act of sheer will.

Brian Evenson is the author of eight books of ction, most recently The Open Curtain, which was a nalist for the Edgar Award and the International Horror Guild Award. He is the recipient of both an O. Henry Award and an NEA award. Evenson's writing has been described as dark, violent, philosophical, critical, and lyrical.

Listener Opinions

    " Evenson is amazing. Every sentence he writes is great. The book, like his others, goes way too far and soon becomes a nasty car accident that you cannot look away from. I was repulsed and I laughed uneasily and I spent a week or so in a rather disturbed state of mind. "

    " What starts out as a gore-fest becomes a satire of organized religion. Amusing, but the comparisons with Hammett, Lethem, Kafka, Hemingway and so on are a bit much. As I read it, I kept thinking of Graham Masterton's "Ritual", also about a cult of dismemberment (with cannibalism, however). "

    " A delightful suprise! Short book, fast paced, weird, sort of like a big novel distilled down to it's stronger version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jason | 9/17/2013

    " The most brutal and nihilistic book I've read in quite some time. I'm not sure if horror-noir is an "official" literary term, but it describes this book perfectly. Think Raymond Chandler meets David Cronenberg. I definitely want to seek out more of Evenson's work. Recommended. "
