Oksana Maslovskiy is an award-winning artist, an internationally adored fashion model, and one of the most infamous serial killers this country has ever known. She enjoys murdering pretty young men with a nine-inch blade, cutting them open and admiring their delicate insides. It's the only way she knows how to be intimate with another human being.
But one day she meets a victim who cannot be killed. His name is Gabriel-a mysterious immortal being with a deep desire to save Oksana's soul. He makes her a deal. If she promises to never kill another human being again, he'll allow her to kill him as much as she wants, using whichever methods she desires. He would become her eternal murder victim.
At first, this seems like the perfect relationship for Oksana. She doesn't have to worry about hunting down her prey or getting caught by the police. But there are only so many ways you can kill a man before the process gets mechanical and boring. When she starts killing other men behind Gabriel's back, he becomes insanely jealous. She tries to break off the relationship with him, but Gabriel refuses to let her go. He has become obsessed. Now she has to deal with a crazed stalker who is infatuated with being killed by her, a man who knows all her secrets, who cannot be killed, who cannot be turned in to the police, who is willing to do whatever it takes to get what he wants. And no matter how hard she tries, there's nothing Oksana can do to get rid of him.
As She Stabbed Me Gently in the Face is a metaphor for a bad relationship, told in the form of a sociopathic killer's affair with an even more sociopathic victim. From the mind of Wonderland Book Award winner Carlton Mellick III, author of Apeshit and Quicksand House, comes one of the strangest and most gruesome love stories ever put to print.
