GUN CHURCH

by Coleman, Reed Farrel

Once a literary wunderkind, author Kip Weiler now teaches creative writing at Brixton County Community College - a third-rate school in a rural mining town. But when he saves his class from a potential blood-bath, he is initiated by two of his students into a cult-like group that worships the essential nature of handguns, and rekindles his long-absent creative spark.

But as Weiler'?s involvement with the cult deepens and the end of his novel is in sight, the lines between art and life blur until they become unrecognizable. In this church, there's no need for red wine or wafers. In Gun Church, the blood and bodies are for real.

Reed Farrel Coleman is a three-time recipient of the Shamus Award for Best Detective Novel of the Year and is a two-time Edgar Award nominee, amongst other awards for his twelve novels. He co-wrote the acclaimed novel Tower with Ken Bruen, which is currently in development as a feature film. His books have been translated into seven languages. Reed is an adjunct professor at Hofstra University. He lives with his family on Long Island.

Comments

Superior crime thriller from Shamus Award-winner Coleman ... keeps readers guessing to the end.

Quote: Publshers Weekly

Coleman skillfully places the reader on the narrator?s shoulder as he self-destructs, and we bite our lips against warning screams. Readers will respond to the atmospheric, shrewdly crafted story.
