God is a Bullet is the cult classic back in print and soon to be a major motion picture starring Jamie Foxx, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and January Jones.

During Christmas week in 1995, a fourteen-year-old girl is kidnapped by a bloodthirsty satanic cult. Bob Hightower, the girl’s father and a small-town cop, embarks on a desperate mission to find her, but his only hope lies with Case Hardin, an ex-cult member and ex-junkie living in a half-way house in Hollywood. Their quest – his to find his child, hers to exorcise her demons – becomes a primal hunt-and-chase through a savage subculture of drugs and ritualistic violence . . .

Publisher Review

Frightening, ferocious first novel about satanic cults fuelled by drugs and armed to the teeth in the awesome deserts of the American Southwest . . . Not for those of a nervous disposition * Daily Telegraph * God is a Bullet is a shotgun blast to the gut--a kick-ass, in-your-face tour de force from start to finish. Every page carries a fresh wallop and a nightmarish jolt. Boston Teran's haunting words stay with you long after you turn the final page. I'm still stunned. -- Harlan Coben A shotgun thriller with the cocksure timing of a professional hit * New York Times Book Review * It's a rollercoaster of an experience, noir as a purging metaphysical experience that will take your breath away * Guardian * God is a Bullet is an intense, emotional reading experience, an unrelenting thriller populated with full-bodied, deeply drawn characters. Boston Teran locates the heart beneath the darkness and delivers something human and true. -- George P. Pelecanos A grim glorious Gothic that culminates in an action finish Bruce Willis would kill for -- Val McDermid on Never Count Out the Dead A brilliantly paced, suspense-packed . . . richly imagined thriller . . . It's hard not to admire God Is a Bullet . . . It's even harder to put the book down * Washington Post Book World *
