New York Times best-selling author Peter Straub resurrects his most sinister creation, Fielding Fee Bandolier, the unstoppable serial killer last seen in Straub's bestseller The Throat. Aging and tired of a life devoted to death, Fee is preparing to end his long career of bloodshed. Bob Steele is a disillusioned New York detective out for redemption and to him redemption means a one-man crusade to stop Fielding Bandolier. Steele's father cruelly named him after a Hollywood cowboy hero. The name has been a curse because Bob has very little hero in him. But he's going to give it one last try. Cop and killer fi nally face off in a mysterious midwestern pub, The Green Woman Tavern. And in that abandoned place, an unspeakable evil stronger than either of them lies waiting to seal the fates of both men.

Praise For The Green Woman

"Peter Straub has written some of the most beautiful, disturbing and poetic
horror of the last century. It's a delight to see him turn his attention to
graphic novels. Chilling and haunting."
                                --Neil Gaiman

"John Bolton is a god and Straub and Easton write about evil like it was their own invention.
Let The Green Woman sink its claws into you."

 -- Robert Rodriguez, director of Sin City and Machete 

"Peter Straub is a living legend and John Bolton remains one of the great comics illustrators of our generation. Together with Michael Easton, these masters weave a beautifully macabre tale. A must read for horror fans."

-- Steve Niles, writer, 30 Days of Night, Freaks of the Heartland
