I've had a couple notes handed to me in bars over the years. Maybe that's why I don't go to bars that much anymore. Anyway, as creepy as finding a note to you in a bar might be, finding one ordering you to kill your already long-dead father just might be the creepiest. And that's precisely how this story begins.

Jebediah Crane has a lot of emotional baggage--not to mention the physical scars--of a troubled life. And when he finds that note from some anonymous taskmaster, it's not like he is utter

Eric Jackson writes with a singular and unique voice that you can't help but follow down the twisting corridors of this dark tale. The book had me from the opening and didn't let go until the final page. If you're looking for something fresh and different then I'd highly recommend!

I received this book for free from the Goodreads first read giveaway. I didn't really understand this book. Seemed to be about a dude with some serious mental illness. I will probably read it again and may get a better understanding and may change my rating. Short book at 84 pages.
