"There is not a more intense, prolific, or apocalyptic writer of fiction in America than Brian Evenson."--George Saunders

"A contemporary gothic tale about the apocalyptic connection between religion and violence."--Publishers Weekly

When Rudd, a troubled teenager, embarks on a school research project, he runs across the secret Mormon ritual of blood sacrifice, and its role in a 1902 murder committed by the grandson of Brigham Young. Along with his newly discovered half-brother, Rudd becomes swept up in the psychological and atavistic effects of this violent, antique ritual.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"No matter what book of Evenson's we're talking about, a reader might indeed feel like something had been inflicted upon him, after spending time inside Evenson's books, which are so frequently violent and disorienting, destablizing norms of behavior just as they destabilize identity, place, and memory."--Believer Logger

"This is one of the bravest, most searching novels I know."--The Week
