A serial killer is on the loose, the lead detective, Tom, is haunted by the dead and heads to a dive bar to seek out a drink and some company. He meets Lila and quickly becomes infatuated. Her mysterious rituals point to darker secrets, ones that Tom is unaware he shares.
This was a pretty good story, very heavy on gore and some sexual content. I found the ending to be a bit confusing but with a good twist to it.
I disliked the main character, Tom. I thought he was a jerk but I think the author did this on purpose to foreshadow later events although the ending was still shocking.
I'm not sure I got everything out of this story that the author intended but it was a good short read.
