Publisher describes this as intense and deeply unsettling. I could not agree more. Our protagonist, a detective that had just gone through a traumatic experience - indeed an intense and deeply unsettling one, is co-opted, corrupted and lampooned when he gets involved in a religious cult that takes bodily penance, self-flagellation and the like to its extreme. The cult’s credo is the more body parts a member can chop off, cut off, the better. Ears, fingers, eyes, limbs -anything goes. Self-flagellation? No, Sir. That simply won’t do.
Our protagonist is disgusted, and rightly so, since he himself just lost his hand to a hatchet. And he did not volunteer - goes without saying. Soon our detective realizes that there is much more at stake than solve if a murder mystery for a cult of plum-mad religious fanatics. But read for yourself - if you got the stomach.

Normally I'm not a big short story collection girly. I get heavily invested in characters and it's difficult for me when I only have 5-30 pages with them.

But this collection is goddamn brilliant. I didn't "put it together", so to speak, until the very final story but consider my mind blown.

My favorite stories in the collection are the epynonomous story, Mudder Tongue (heartbreaking), In the Greenhouse, and The Third Factor.

One of the most relentlessly violent novels I have read, and I love it for that.

Post-apocalyptic neurological disorders? Intriguing, but a reductive reading is unavoidable with many of these stories.
