Overview

Someone saved David Barker’s life, but he doesn’t know who—or what—she is. Now he’s haunted by the image of that beautiful, nebulous vision with of a woman. David uses an angel board in hopes of contacting her, and unfortunately for him, he succeeds. This angel has loved him all his life, guarded him and protected him. And she’ll hurt anyone who interferes with that love. David’s guardian angel is obsessive, possessive…and homicidal. Her unyielding love for him will leave a trail of grisly “accidents” and murders as she eliminates all those who want to hurt David. Or love him.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rufty’s unapologetically gruesome horror debut revolves around the relationship between an emotionally unstable man and his supposed guardian angel. David Barker, a discontented assistant manager at an office products store, slits his wrists and sees a vision of an ethereal woman. He attributes his survival to her. When his mother gives him an angel board—essentially a Ouija board designed to communicate with angels—he contacts his beautiful savior, whom he names Natasha, and they begin a strange and intense otherworldly courtship. But Natasha’s behavior isn’t exactly angelic, and she’ll kill anyone who gets between her and her lover. The pacing is brisk, the action nonstop, and the ending delightfully unexpected, but a choppy narrative, uncompelling characters, and hilariously over-the-top violence (“She saw the meat cleaver coming toward her, spinning end over end, making PHAWP! PHAWP! PHAWP! noises”) make this far from a heavenly read. (Jan.)
