- critical reviews
"Raises important, powerful issues, and holds them up to scrutiny."
"Do you know what it's like being a prisoner to something? How could you? You just sit home all day watching soaps and planning meals in your brand new kitchen... by the way, it don't look good for that getting finished any time soon."
Gordon Amos, writer of both Dickensian novels and sadomasochistic pornography, has been dead for over a century, but hasn't been forgotten. Every year, on the anniversary of his death, a mysterious woman known only as The Tradition has visited his grave. But this year, an ambitious out-of-town reporter has decided to expose The Tradition, little imagining the horrific consequences. Now two detectives are left to clean up the mess and stop a wave of gruesome murders.
