Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published : New York : Kensington, 1981.
Includes a never before published short story "Bone Dead Sadness" and and interview with Joe R. Lansdale.
Set in the vividly evoked urban squalor of Houston, Texas, Act of Love moves with great authority between the disordered mind of a compulsive killer and the increasingly desperate perspectives of the policemen who hunt him. In the process, it offers a detailed portrait of a complex murder investigation and anatomizes a city under siege, a city held hostage by a latter day Jack the Ripper--publisher.
