A tightly written and relentlessly paced tour through a Dorthea Lange America watered with magic and spilled blood.

Unfortunately, it's somewhat let down by an incredibly predictable ending, as well as the weakness of Mr. Shivers, himself. What we see of his worldview is... dull and uninspired, a litany of lazy rhetoric that breaks down in confrontation with the inevitable.

Mr. Shivers is neo-noir road trip of not-quite-urban fantasy without the kitchen sink, and if that's your sort of thing it's certainly worth a read for a change of pace.
