Inhaltsangabe: Christmas, 1995. A 14-year-old girl is kidnapped by a bloodthirsty Satanic cult. Bob Hightower, the girl's father and a small-town cop, embarks on a desperate mission to find her, but his only hope lies with Case Hardin, an ex-cult member and ex-junkie living in a halfway house in Hollywood.
"[A] tautly paced and harrowing debut thriller . . . Cynical and DeLillo-like in its observations, paced with present-tense immediacy, Teran's hard-boiled prose does not belittle the tragedy at this novel's core. Not for the faint-hearted, the book is as addictive as illegal substances."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Boston Teran writes like an angel, shining a clear light on the deeds of the devil in this hunt-and-chase thriller. God is a Bullet is a stunner of a suspense novel, body-slamming its way down an uncharted rocky terrain of pain, fear, horror, bravery and redemption . . .Teran's voice is fresh, unique and explosive. He has delivered a work that is too good, too important and too painful to be ignored."
-- Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and Apaches
"God is a Bullet defies description. Nothing I have ever read, NOTHING, has filled me with the exciting sense of dread and fear I felt while reading this extraordinary first novel. Everything about this book is perfect: the story is astounding, the characters are etched in my brain, the real-time style is riveting, and Teran's dialogue is carved out of granite. It will be a long while before I get this story and these characters out of my head. It is just a terrific experience."
--William Diehl, author of Reign in Hell and Primal Fear
"God is a Bullet is an intense, emotional reading experience, an unrelenting thriller populated with full-bodied, deeply-drawn characters. Boston Teran locates the heart beneath the darkness and delivers something human and true."
--George Pelecanos, author of The Sweet Forever
"In a word: Wow. God is a Bullet is a shotgun blast to the gut--a kick-ass, in-your-face tour de force from start to finish. Every page carries a fresh wallop and a nightmarish jolt. Boston
Teran's haunting words stay with you long after you turn the final page. I'm still stunned."
--Harlan Coben, Edgar Award-winning author of Fade Away and One False Move
"God is a Bullet is a go-juice pumped, drag-you-down-the-street thriller that is also a haunting novel about survival of the human spirit. It has claimed a permanent part of my imagination. I can't let it go... honestly, I don't want to let it go. It's that good."
--Fred Willard, author of Down on Ponce
Comments from booksellers:
"I love it . . .a truly original, if not slightly disturbing, novel."
--Matt Hawthorne, Booksource in St. Louis
"God is a Bullet is an incredible piece of work! A halogen light in a room full of dim bulbs, it has blockbuster written all over it. Teran--who has a talent for growing memorable characters from unlikely material--had my rapt attention from the first page through to the end."
--Maggie Griffin, Partners & Crime bookstore in Manhattan
