Overview

Billionaire John Farrington is obsessed with the idea of offending God to the point that God would want to confront him in person. Farrington has abducted priests and nuns to commit sexual atrocities with the most grievously genetically deformed people he can find. People that he's also abducted and kept in such a high state of sexual intensity, with a drug his company produces, that they are just ravenous for physical contact. The abductees, with basically no self control, commit some of the most depraved sex acts, over, and over again. Westmore and Bryant, a photographer and journalist, are given the rare opportunity to interview the reclusive Farrington and see inside his mansion and operation. Only to find the horrors within, and who have become pawns in the mysteries they find behind every door. Farmington's plan may work, and to make sure he's successful, he will do whatever it takes to have the deity of man face him.

This book was about 200 Nook Tablet pages. Other reviewers called it a short novella. It seemed to be an appropriate length. It could have gone a little longer, but it is not a big problem. It was pretty good. It was not either authors' best work, but it was kind of original. I did not find myself "totally grossed out" or even overusing my gag-reflex. Possibly my pre-med education and years in the public health arena has desensitized me to human birth defects. But, not to human moral corruption. I want to clarify that most people with the extreme biological deformaties demonstrated in this book do not usually live to age 18. (Although, there are always exceptions to the rule.) But, at least the authors did not write in any sexual contact between characters under age 18. No one wants pedophilia in their extreme horror novels, because that would be wrong. Since no one else wants to write a plot summary, then I will. A journalist and a drunk photographer are lured into a house of horrors in order to interview the young multi-billionaire who lives there. A status quo assignment for the duo. They get invited into the mansion and learn that the plan has changed. They will now be employed to document all of the vile and evil things that the owner has devised as an affront to God. He covers his bases by including all religions. The billionaire's intent is to offend God to the point that he must reveal Himself by way of a personal visit to this mansion. There are a lot of disturbing sexual pairings and violent activities that happen over the majority of the book. The moral is twofold. Firstly, is that absolute good and pure evil do exist. Secondly, be careful what you ask for, because you may not have been specific enough to get what you wanted. I recommend it to fans of extreme horror. And to fans of Edward Lee. This is a little different than the stories that he usually writes alone. It was a good story even if the ending happened quickly.

First, the overview should state that your paying a "full book" price for an essentially short story - 70 pages. Add that insult to the oooh so many grammatical errors - and that's only in the first 12 pages I've read so far! I'm a diehard horror fan and the first few pages had me gagging back vomit big time. From there the story was unimaginative and stilted. SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A DIFFERENT BOOK!!! B&N should refund my money.
