Inhaltsangabe: There's a girl in the hotel lobby. Long legs in a red dress. Scar at the edge of her mouth, body like a knife. I buy her a drink and wake up with staples in my side. "Don’t worry," she says. "You only need one."
Disgraced junkie cop turned apocalyptic antihero Phineas Poe emerges from a psych ward on Christmas Eve and tumbles for beautiful predatory Jude, streetwise assassin turned organ thief. After one night together, she cuts him open, leaves him to fate. Reborn in a bath of ice, Phineas tracks Jude from the back alleys of Denver across the Texas desert for a violent showdown that leaves them on the run to Mexico and the debauched playgrounds of California’s elite. Descend into a nightmare realm where every act of perversion finds willing disciples. Enter a world of brutal blood sport, murderous role play, existential snuff films. Lines between victim and accomplice blur past recognition only to be redrawn according to violent whim. The myth of Orpheus is deconstructed on a razorblade as Phineas and Jude chase each other through a hell of their own making.
PHINEAS POE is equal parts noir romance, revenge fantasy, suicide pact, urban myth exploded, and nihilistic tragedy.
Klappentext: "Will Baer has located the black heart of noir, rescued it from the dry-hump clutch of homage, and dragged it back to the drunk tank where it belongs." -George Pelecanos, author of Hell To Pay and Soul Circus
"Violent deconstruction of urban myth and dark unraveling of mystery within mystery- this is a fine and dangerous work." -Poppy Z. Brite, author of Drawing Blood and Exquisite Corpse
"The writing is perfect, synergistic, and beautifully interwoven with the story- the reader is put through an extraordinary experience." -Hubert Selby, Jr., author of Requiem For A Dream and Last Exit to Brooklyn
