Dead, dead, dead. Say it enough times and it becomes just another word.

What would you do? Could you kill a killer? Does the death of one appease the deaths of a hundred? What about that hundred against a thousand?

What if you had no choice?

Meet Sin. No, not that sort of sin, but Sin, crazy as a loon (you ask Sister Moon), and proud of it. Sin locks himself away in an asylum and, every so often, gets violent. That's only so they'll give him those nice drugs, though. The ones that help him forget.

It's a pity they don't work.

Sin, you see, has a serious problem. Well, it's not so much his problem, as ours - yours, mine and everyone else's. People die around Sin. He doesn't like it and there's nothing he can do about it. But someone else knows, and Sin has to stop them... and himself...

That voice! Have you ever had a character jump out at you from the page? That’s exactly what Sin does. After downloading the sample (my own personal rule–sample before buying), I immediately purchased this book. Why? Because I miss the entertainment value of reading Douglas Adams for the first time. If you don’t know who that is, you need to find out. Combine Stephen King, Doctor Who, and Douglas Adams together and you’ve got a terrifically creepy story with some dark humor to boot. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys that sort of thing. The narrator seems so real and alive, with a voice that pulls you in and makes you want to keep reading.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s weird. If you don’t do weird, this isn’t for you. But if you like some spice in your reading repertoire, this will fill a void you didn’t even know existed. Got a Kindle? Download a sample first and see if I’m wrong. I won’t say I told you so.
