The words pour out of your wounded soul...
Welcome to Quinsigamond, a worn-out New England town infected by a soulless cabal that rules the streets. Gilrein used to be one of the good guys, until this dark world claimed the life of his wife and fellow police officer, Ceil. Even exchanging his badge for a cab still cannot erase the past or the long-buried instincts Gilrein honed on the beat.
The words choke in your throat...
When suspected of possessing a missing rarity that someone is all too willing to murder for, Gilrein races to unearth long-buried secrets. And the only people he can turn to are the Inspector, a detective and master of linguistics who can shed light on the secret life Ceil led--and how it ended; Otto Langer, a haunted refugee from Eastern Europe; and Wylie Brown, Gilrein's ex-lover whose passion for a century-old murderer knows no bounds.
The words on your breath will be your last...
Word Made Flesh is a profound and utterly suspenseful tale of evil, conspiracy, and love, where a magnificent and macabre obsession with words and language will mean redemption for some...and damnation for others.
