"There is not a more intense, prolific, or apocalyptic writer of fiction in America than Brian Evenson."--George Saunders

"A contemporary gothic tale about the apocalyptic connection between religion and violence."--Publishers Weekly

When Rudd, a troubled teenager, embarks on a school research project, he runs across the secret Mormon ritual of blood sacrifice, and its role in a 1902 murder committed by the grandson of Brigham Young. Along with his newly discovered half-brother, Rudd becomes swept up in the psychological and atavistic effects of this violent, antique ritual.
