Filming an act of sex in which someone is killed should be the stuff of morbid legend. But as Yaron Svoray, an Israeli investigative journalist discovers, snuff films are terrifyingly real. Since viewing one of these films while working on an expose of the German neo-Nazi movement, Svoray has been haunted by the knowledge of such terrifying, twisted documents. In Gods of Death, Svoray's daring and conviction propel the reader through a harrowing chase full of close calls and awful revelations at every turn. His story is a chilling one, a narrative whose unflinching detail awakens us to a nightmarish reality in which no one can be trusted and absolutes are obsolete.
