Roaring south in a black Cadillac, John Smith is on the road trip from Hell through a nightmarish version of Americana, a place of rotting hollows and dusty crossroads, slaughterhouses and haunted trains. He doesn't know how he woke up after sitting down in the electric chair, where he got the black suit with the slit up the back or even the cigarettes in his pocket. All he knows is that there is a woman guarding a great secret and he's supposed to kill her.
"Foster ferociously and competently propels this full-throttle odyssey of assassination, the first in the Libros de Inferno trilogy, to depths of gut-punching horror rarely glimpsed in a debut." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
