Waterstones Says

Shocking, transgressive and immensely gory, Brite's portayal of a chilling serial killer's exploits in London and New Orleans is certainly not for the faint-hearted but endures as a milestone of visceral horror.

A terrifying novel of love and slaughter set in London and New Orleans.

To serial killer Andrew Compton, murder is an art, the most intimate art. After feigning his own death to escape from a life sentence in prison, he makes his way to America with the intention of bringing his art to new heights. Tortured by his own perverse desires, he inadvertently joins forces with Jay, a dissolute playboy. They set their sights on a young Vietnamese-American runaway, who they deem to be the perfect victim.

Moving from the grimy streets of London's Piccadilly Circus to the decadences of New Orleans' French Quarter, Poppy Z. Brite dissects the landscape of torture and invites us into the mind of a serial killer in this riveting, unforgettable masterpiece of horror.

“The best horror novel ever?”

So glad I picked this up again after many years. I can understand why I didn’t get it when I first tried. With certainty, one of the best horror novels in existence. Southern Gothic on acid, deeply disturbing and... More
