God is a Bullet is the cult classic back in print and soon to be a major motion picture starring Jamie Foxx, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and January Jones.

During Christmas week in 1995, a fourteen-year-old girl is kidnapped by a bloodthirsty satanic cult. Bob Hightower, the girl’s father and a small-town cop, embarks on a desperate mission to find her, but his only hope lies with Case Hardin, an ex-cult member and ex-junkie living in a half-way house in Hollywood. Their quest – his to find his child, hers to exorcise her demons – becomes a primal hunt-and-chase through a savage subculture of drugs and ritualistic violence . . .

‘An absolutely stupendous debut novel’ - Mark Timlin, Independent

Frightening, ferocious first novel about satanic cults fuelled by drugs and armed to the teeth in the awesome deserts of the American Southwest . . . Not for those of a nervous disposition
God is a Bullet is a shotgun blast to the gut--a kick-ass, in-your-face tour de force from start to finish. Every page carries a fresh wallop and a nightmarish jolt. Boston Teran's haunting words stay with you long after you turn the final page. I'm still stunned.

A shotgun thriller with the cocksure timing of a professional hit
