Summary
"Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia. There's Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can't save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer, no matter how much sacrificial blood he pours on his 'prayer log.' There's Carl and Sandy Henderson, a husband-and-wife team of serial killers who troll America's highways searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. There's the spider-handling preacher, Roy, and his crippled virtuoso-guitar-playing sidekick, Theodore, running from the law. And caught in the middle of all this is Arvin Eugene Russel, Willard and Charlotte's orphaned son who grows up to be a good but violent man in his own right."--Dustjacket flap
