Jonah Murtag is an Acolyte on the New Bethlehem police force. His job: eradicate all heretical religious faiths, their practitioners, and artefacts. Murtag's got problems-one of his partners is a zealot, and he's in love with the other one. Trouble at work, trouble at home. Murtag realizes that you can rob a citizenry of almost anything, but you can't take away its faith. When a string of bombings paralyzes the city, religious fanatics are initially suspected, but startling clues point to a far more ominous perpetrator. If Murtag doesn't get things sorted out, the Divine Council will dispatch The Quints, aka: Heaven's Own Bagmen. The clock is ticking towards doomsday for the Chosen of New Bethlehem. And Jonah Murtag's got another problem. The biggest and most worrisome . . . Jonah isn't a believer anymore.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Nick Cutter:

"The Troop scared the hell out of me."
-Stephen King

"Utterly terrifying."
-Clive Barker, creator of Hellraiser

"Lean and crisp and delightfully over-the-top. Think Tales From the Crypt, think early Crichton, think King on coke. Disquieting, disturbing, and it's also great fun to read."
-Scott Smith, author of The Ruins

"Cutter (a pseudonym for Craig Davidson) is masterful at filling his story with the nasty detail, violent action and unexpected plotting that keep it moving and twisting like a faith healer's rattlesnake. And while The Acolyte is more dystopian sci-fi than horror, Cutter fills his world with vividly described murder and mutilation, sideshow freaks and stomach-churning cruelty."
-Rue Morgue
