Becky got raped. Her husband Monty has the "lack of balls blues." Bad dude Brian blames Becky for the death of his closest friend. When Becky and Monty drive north from Galveston into the piney woods of East Texas, and hole up in a cabin to recover, Brian and his compadres make a date for revenge. Then the God of the Razor shows up. A brilliant, hypercharged horror novel with sex, violence, a black '66 Chevy and a plastic Jesus with a lightbulb inside. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

We have Montgomery Buford Jones, Jr. and his wife, Becky, heading away to a friend's cabin to try to forget the awful happenings of Becky being sadistically raped. Doesn't work as well as hoped because the rapist's gang wants to complete the job and follows them. Monty has to decide if he's going to stay the pacifist he has always been and believed he should be, or whether he's going to man up and protect his wife.
This is a very brutal, violent book. But then Lansdale's books aren't known for being "G" rated. It is scary; the bad guys are really, really bad. There is some of the supernatural thrown in. Does evil really exist in this world? Lansdale is a great writer and while I think The Bottoms and A Fine Dark Line are his masterpieces, this older book of his is well worth reading. Just know you've been forewarned.
Oh, and Dean Koontz did a great introduction for the book.
Lansdale is a skilled master, one of the best we have. If you like your fiction hardcore then you need to give this one a read. I'd give it more stars but I'm only allowed five.
