Marcus hardly realized, as he carelessly bumped through life, that he would be so violently jarred from his apathetic existence by the brutal slaying and apparent trophying of his wife. Nor did he imagine that the very skepticism which guided his existence would be just one of the commonalities he would share with his wife's killer. Set in Hells Kitchen New York, Gordon Jaylor's novel, HeadGod, defines a ghoulish context in which an ordinary figure attempts to re-define normalcy after an unthinkable tragedy. Marcus overcomes questions of morality and theology, pushing his very belief system to the edge as he is drawn into and out of an investigation where unlikely alliances breed startling realizations. Only by reaching the conclusions that his nemesis has already attained can Marcus exploit a freakish sect, and draw nearer to, the HeadGod.
