I first read this book in the late 90¿s and loved it. Ten years or so on, and I¿ll admit to struggling with it this time round. This is more a reflection on me than the book - unless the fiction fairies have been subtly altering the plot whilst I wasn¿t looking. Still enjoyable, just sometimes felt a little slow paced.

One of Blaylock's best. Possibly the best of his books.

Would have been greatly improved with some serious editing. Too many scenes that were not funny enough to stand on their own for the sole purpose of showing the same characterization over and over and over again.

A mixture of the everyday and the fantastic, as the protagonist is drawn into a struggle to prevent the thirty pieces of silver paid to Judas from being reunited. The story has moments of humor, even hilarity, horror, and the bizarre as only Blaylock can write. It has well-written, suprisingly realistic characters, and gives us a glimpse of a world beyond the blinders so many of us wear so often.

If you enjoy Tim Powers, Stephen King & authors like them, this book is for you. Mr. Blaylock is my favorite author, bar none. Read this & you'll be looking for the rest of his works in no time.
