Overview

Killing children is an ugly business, but the alternative is so much uglier.

Abner Slate just watched his five-year-old daughter, Olive, kill his wife and son. Olive is a sopath. Born without souls, sopaths are children who will lie, cheat, rape, and murder to get what they want. There's one in every family these days, destroying America's heartland from within.

After murdering his daughter in self-defense, Abner is taken in by a secret network of sopath victims called Pariah. Through Pariah, he meets other sopath victims who band together to form a temporary nuclear family. But the sopath threat is getting worse, and soon their quaint little neighborhood is overrun by murderous, drug-running children.

Now, on a mission for Pariah, Abner and his makeshift family must travel across the country to a mysterious town that contains a secret powerful enough to stop the sopath crisis. Instead, they find the most seductive and ruthless sopath of all. Her name is Autopsy, and she would like to add Abner to her slave collection.

The old morality is dead. Now the sopaths will stalk the earth.

    Adults only; not for the squeamish

    Consider a world with a finite number of souls available. The human race exceeds that limit and babies are born without a soul. They grow up with no conscience, killing anyone to get their way. They use sex as a weapon, sometimes beginning at a very early age. These soulless creatures become known as 'Sopaths'. This is the story of one man and his family and how they deal with this terrible problem. An interesting concept and well presented. BUT! This is definitely NOT a book for teenagers or the squeamish. If you have strong religious views, you will probably be disgusted with the book.

    I have read most of Mr. Anthony's books and while I prefer his science fiction (the Cluster series) and his fantasy (Xanth novels), this was quite a change of pace. I'm not sorry I bought the book but I don't think I would buy another of this type. Very disturbing premise.
