Sable has a unique talent, and it has nothing to do with her dominatrix skills. She can bring back the dead, if only for a little while, by playing with their intestines. It doesn’t sound like a job with a pension but the pay is good and sometimes a girl just isn’t given a choice.
When the new boss in town finds out just what she can do her whole life falls apart and she doesn’t know who she can trust. One thing is for sure and it’s that her power is her best chance of survival.
This book is not for the faint-hearted and if you are listening to it via audiobook, then I’d advise headphones.
I have read one of Tim Miller’s books before and I must say, this book wasn’t at all what I expected. Sable is such a strong lead character that I really connected with her. She was an honest character with plenty of wit and warmth to draw me in.
There’s plenty of violence which is Miller’s forte but it doesn’t dominate the book, excuse the pun. The gore is imaginative and amusing; it is also necessary. Miller has that rare talent of being able to portray the inner workings of a sadist, without losing the humour and readability of the story.
I believe there may be a book two in the future and can’t wait to see what Sable is up to.
