Introduction by Peter Straub.
OVERVIEW: Intense and profoundly unsettling, Brian Evensonís Last Days is a down-the-rabbit-hole detective novel set in an underground religious cult. The story follows Kline, a brutally dismembered detective forcibly recruited to solve a murder inside the cult. As Kline becomes more deeply involved with the group, he begins to realize the stakes are higher than he previously thought. Attempting to find his way through a maze of lies, threats, and misinformation, Kline discovers that his survival depends on an act of sheer will. Last Days was first published in 2003 as a limited edition novella titled The Brotherhood of Mutilation. Its success led Evenson to expand the story into a full-length novel. In doing so, he has created a work thatís disturbing, deeply satisfying, and completely original. Feb. 1, 2009 Underland Press trade paperback. 256 pages. New.
