In this majestically unnerving novel, Michael Dibdin, the creator of the acclaimed Aurelio Zen mysteries, explores themes that might have been ripped out of today's headlines, as he charts America's dual epidemic of religious cultism and random violence.The murders take place in distant cities and with no apparent motive. All that connects them is their cold-blooded efficiency. But a dogged Seattle detective and a horribly bereaved survivor are about to come face-to-face with their perpetrator—a man named Los, a self-styled prophet who has the power to make his followers travel thousands of miles to kill for him. Out of mayhem and revelation, the minutiae of police work and the explosive contents of a psychotic mind, Michael Dibdin orchestrates a tour de force of dread. This should be read with the lights on and the doors firmly bolted.

Review:

Dibdin is a connoisseur's thriller writer, widely admired for his neat craftmanship in such novels as Dead Lagoon.

In this stunning new novel he once again widens the boundaries of his fiction, linking seemingly unrelated lives: a hapless family man whose world is blasted apart by apparently random events, police detectives in several cities investigating cold-blooded multiple murders, members of a cult whose initiation rite is an act of pure, rationalized malevolence. All these lives spin in desperate orbit around a man known to his followers as Los, the Eternal Prophet--a man whose mind is a ground zero of psychosis and mayhem.

From the Inside Flap:

With an extraordinarily acute take on the extremist mind, the award-winning author of Ratking gives readers an electrifying story of interconnected lives, all of which spin in a desperate orbit around a man known to his followers as the "Eternal Prophet."
