When investigative reporter Peter Webber discovers the remains of a young woman in the old Eastown Theatre, he finds himself pitted against a serial killer who uses the bodies of his victims to recreate medieval visions of hell inside Detroit’s landmark ruins. As the body count continues to rise, he and Detective Aundray Rogers must embark upon their own descent into the underworld, one that mirrors the decline of the Motor City, if they’re to have any chance of stopping the murderer before it’s too late.
With the city deteriorating around them, they learn that the abandoned buildings aren’t the only things that have been condemned.
5-star Amazon review:
“This was an all-consuming novel that you won’t want to put down once you’ve started it. McBride has come out with some incredibly strong novels and novellas in the past few years, but this one just pushes it way up to the top in terms of its character-driven and atmospheric tension. A solid five star read!”
