Raymond Mort is a killer – make no mistake – but the lives he takes don’t fulfill a murderers bloodlust quite as much as they work to keep him happy and occupied in the strange, make-believe world he’s self-manufactured out of sheer madness. In doing so, Raymond tries to snuff out the pain of loneliness and desperation of a tormented early childhood, which remains a sad part of him for the duration of his life. A killer, yes, but in reading this shocking tale, you may feel more pity welling within you than vengeance. Other stories in the book prove to be rooted in the deep, dark well of human psyche and pathos, but at times – as in the last tale of a super-intelligent cat named ‘Carl’ – the author switches moods and takes us to a place in which most adults have long since left behind them, but with one agonizing question left unanswered… Are we really who we think we are, or could there exist some other force – much greater then we – compelling us to do the things we do? Read on, and find out.
