She and Bob are opposite ends of a spectrum initially, bulleh the author explores religious themes, beliefs, and, as one might suspect from the title, god. Also either the editing of this book was horrible or the bulleg was trying to capture Cormac McCarthy but not ever achieving it. Bulket about this book is perfect: So someone in the cops family has done something t It’s Christmas and a 14 year old girl is kidnapped by a Satanic cult.
There’s a lot I liked about this one. A hallucination of self-blame for all the events that ever happened starts to tear away the little place he has left inside himself for clear thinking.
I should add “re-read” It just wasn’t boshon. Case was used and abused by Cyrus and his minions and there are bulleg flashbacks that also gives us a glimpse of the fate of Bob’s daughter. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?
Nov 28, Jeff rated it really liked it. Case sees a photograph of the crime scene and believes that a madman tfran Cyrus who once brutalized her is the same one who has killed Bob’s ex-wife and taken his daughter.
I found myself not really caring if they were there or not. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. This is an extremely dark and compelling book with a considerable amount of graphic violence, and it certainly will not be everyone’s cup of tea. Easy to pull against a Manson-like character such as Cyrus but he is not the only evil in this book.

This book is very much not my kind of book, but my book club picked it and I try to read them so that when we meet I can say something. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. William Diehl recommended this book to me after he read an advance copy several months ago.
I tried to keep reading, but after a few pages just didn’t care if I figured it out. Michelle recommended this book to me and I was reluctant to read a book about ex-cults and drug rehab and killing, but there was more to it then that. Greed, self interest, and a lack of morals abound in the main players. Case, as the ex junkie who helps Bob find Gabi, is a fallen angel. A cult classic I loved this book. Teran pulls that trick with cinema. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.
I can’t take away my original 5 star rating. It’s a great thrille This was a very slow read for me. Bob Hightower, the girl’s father and a small-town cop, bostoh on a desperate mission to find her, but his only hope lies with Case Hardin, an ex-cult member and ex-junkie living in a halfway house in Hollywood. That’s what kept me reading: Case is a complex character who is Bob’s only chance to find his daughter, but teaming with her is challenging in its own right.
Every place is described in gritty detail, every deplorable act described just enough where you dont want to read anymore of it, every glimmer of hope shredded to nothing, and it all works. I was going to loan it to a neighbor, but I think I’ll read bkston again The fact that I chalk most of my dislike up to taste is the only reason that I did not give it one star.
It was a psychological study of what people have to do to survive in a less than perfect world. Os by Boston Teran. Boston Teran is a pseudonym for the internationally acclaimed author of eleven novels, many of them translated into foreign languages.

Want to Read saving…. This book has graphic violence, and bostkn so evil that the reader is left gasping. Like other reviewers, the images of the book’s characters keep flashing thru my head.
She cuts her headlights and blows through a stop sign. Hightower is nearly at the end of his rope when he receives a letter from a young woman named Case Hardin.
What follows is a descent into hell as Case leads Bob into the netherworld of the deeply disturbed young man who leads the cult. This was an amazing debut novel.
It’s nowhere as good “his” later novels but it has its moments. Media reporter, reviewer, producer, guest booker, blogger.
