Readers may find it hard to make head or tail of this novella—which, believe it or not, may be the secret of its perverse charm.

Synopsis

When an illicit encounter with a beautiful prostitute changes the life of young John Marshall, he sets out on a personal quest for vengeance. Raised by a drunken father, John had seemed destined for life on a factory floor. Now, his wrath is directed at those who have what he does not—the wealthy and the powerful. His weapon is the most subtle of arts: seduction. His goal: to wheedle his way into the lives of the well-to-do. There, he will tear apart families, ruin lives and, finally, claw his way to the top of the heap. John thinks of his life as a “private war,” and nothing will hold him back—not love, not compassion, not even God.

"Harnisch has indicated that he writes only when sleepless and symptomatic. As a result, his demons are often evident."
