Perry LaMarke, a life-long underachiever, finds himself eyeball to cross with the one church in Los Angeles dedicated to terror. More
Perry LaMarke and Olivia Stephens--a professional underachiever and his intellectual girlfriend--set out to do a favor for a friend and end up facing the ultimate terror, one which will haunt the rest of their century. Set in the mid-1970s, this well-written novel traces the history of cult leader Colt Diver, a mass murderer locked away, yet not forgotten by the families of people he may have killed and for whose deaths he was never convicted. Perry and Olivia leave their comfortable home in a small Ohio town for the big city where they meet an eccentric prospector, a heavy-drinker rock star, a cynical police force, and the one man who even frightens Colt Diver himself.
