In three weeks, Jack the Ripper will terrorize London in the slum called Whitechapel, but across the pond in New York, there’s another serial killer who is taunting investigators. Fingerprints that are burned into skin, the smell of sulpher, and messages in Latin… all seem like a demon, but that’s silly. Demons don’t exist.

In The Daemoniac, Consulting detective Harrison Fearing Pell certainly doesn’t think so and even if her uncle, Arthur Conan Doyle is a believer, it will take more than a few cheap tricks to pull the wool over her eyes.

Everyone knows about O.J. Simpson and his acquittal of guilt in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend, Ron Goldman. In the criminal trial, Simpson was found “not guilty” by a jury of his peers, a controversial decision to this day. In a civil trial, however, he was found liable for the damages to the Goldman family and lost a fortune to them.

It was in order to make money (presumably because he was low on funds due to that lost fortune), O.J. Simpson agreed to make this book. He worked with a ghost writer and basically hypothesized how he would have committed the murders IF he had been the one to commit them.

So just a heads up that from the very beginning, this is going to be a crass review and not my normal write-up, but then this is a crass/unusual book so… fair game?

Meet the Rat Queens. Four women who make up a gang of mercenaries, who work hard and play harder. To quote the back of the book: “They’re a pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hir and they’re in the business of killing all the god’s creatures for profit.”
