At the risk of losing everything good in his seemingly stable life, David Kennesey is driven to revisit a scene from his past. He must find out what happened one summer night more than 20 years ago when he followed or was it stalked a mysterious woman through a wasteland beside the Scioto River near Columbus, Ohio. What he cant know is that nothing has changed on that road since he left it decades earlier. His quest leads him to a bizarre mansion where hes invited to commit murder and sate his vilest sexual desires. His cadre of helpers have emerged from the wildest pages of mythological arcana. David at last learns the name they call themselves The Holy. If he can relinquish the status quo, unburden himself of the habits and cynicism hes cloaked himself in for the past 20 years, he can become the stranger to himself that he yearns to be. Daniel Quinn is a genuine discovery. His work will be read for years to come. Ray Bradbury
