Jack Eichord is the detective who must hunt this human monster and genius killer. Years of working as a homicide detective for the Chicago Police Department have hardened Eichord to things that would make most men turn and flee. But even he is not prepared for a labyrinthine search underground, as he trails the killer and his hostages through the sewer system of the city. Eichord thinks that he is beginning to understand the diabolical man and his patterns of violence . . . but can he guess the next victim in time, before it is too late for the woman he loves?

Meet the Author

The late Rex Miller had many different jobs and several obsessions. He was a radio broadcaster, did voice-overs, and announced for nationwide radio and television programs. Mr. Miller’s obsessions also proved fruitful, and he was considered one of America’s most knowledgeable authorities on popular culture memorabilia and the culture of nostalgia in general. His many novels include Stone ShadowSlob, and several other books in the Chaingang/Jack Eichord Saga, pitting a police detective against one of the sickest killers in all of popular literature.

PROLOGUE

Her first awareness of him is a presence. Unseen. A stench. It comes around the corner before him, preceding his physical entrance in a sickening downdraft that washes over her and she recoils from the smell which is a combination of rank body odor and sewage and sulfurous stink of rotten food, and it assails her nostrils with the foulness of evil. Then seeing him she flinches again, fighting to regain her composure, resolutely, politely, trained to serve the public, a smile fixing itself to her mouth as he approaches the counter in this awful, stinking swirl of poisonous air.

He grunts out a monosyllabic name, not his real one, and she mumbles something as she hands him his order and checks the amount. It is exactly forty dollars to the penny. She tells him and he produces the money. He hands her the exact amount in filthy, sweat-soaked, crumpled bills that she can barely stand to touch. She thanks him, ringing the order on the cash register and vowing to wash her hands immediately. He swoops up the large sack of food in a giant paw and lumbers away, leaving behind the stinging, terrible odor and the paralyzing, heart-hammering fear of some imagined and unspeakable threat. To her he will always be "forty dollars worth of egg rolls."

He is the one they called CHAINGANG in Vietnam. He was the one who they said back in Marion had taken a human life for nearly every pound of his weight, and he weighed nearly five hundred pounds. He is death personified, demoniacal, unstoppable, bloodthirsty, and very, very real. He wrenches open the door of the stolen car and tosses the sack of food into the passenger seat as he crashes down behind the wheel, thesprings groaning in protest. He thinks how easily he could have killed the aloof woman behind the counter in there. How pleasant it would have been to sink a sharp object into her throat, ripping down across the breasts and then the abdomen and then gutting her and taking the parts he liked the best. And the thought of this fills his head with a scarlet roar.

    Forget Hanibal the Canibal...

    SLOB is one of the most unique, inventive, engrossing and fun books to read about a serial killer. Daniel Edward Flowers Bunkowski is a terrifying force that goes beyond imagining. Only Rex Miller has the audacity to try and tame this monstrosity! This is a must read for anyone and everyone.
