As the novel progresses, Earl recalls with intermittent clarity his unstable childhood, his brief courtship and marriage, and his obsession with serial killers. He broods too about American history and literature, and about his lost parents and brother, but especially about his missing wife. Luminously written and intensely frightening, Shooting the Heart is an unforgettable novel that will grip the reader in suspense until its final revelation.
