Description

Conscience

By John Skipp

If Jim Thompson wrote A CHRISTMAS CAROL, it might go a little something like this…

CONSCIENCE is a short, fierce novel of corruption and redemption by New York Times bestselling author John Skipp. Using the terse, muscular prose of modern crime fiction, it is a Dickensian fable of hope and despair, 21st century style.

CONSCIENCE

Charley Weber is a lousy guy. He kills people for a living, and doesn’t mind it a bit. He has come to L.A. to do something terrible: for money, for revenge, and to make an ugly point about life and truth and love.

But a funny thing happens on the way to the massacre. He finds himself confronted by the only one who could possible stop him.

He finds himself confronted by…himself.

CONSCIENCE

Designed to be read in a single sitting — in roughly the time it takes to watch a feature film — CONSCIENCE is lightning-fast yet thematically rich. It’s a dangerous story, for our dangerous times: violent, funny, thoughtful, tragic, loving, and wise to the ways of the world.

THIS EDITION ALSO FEATURES SIX ADDITIONAL SHORT PIECES, AND THE FEATURE-LENGTH SCREENPLAY “JOHNNY DEATH”.

DISCOVER the fiction of John Skipp on your Kindle. Follow the words through the original Skipp & Spector splatterpunk novels, The Light at the End, The Scream, Animals, Deadlines, The Cleanup – all available through Crossroad Press – many in unabridged audio.
