Matt Faustus, whose very soul is connected to a high ranking fiend, finds himself neck-deep in a new case – one he accepted despite being warned about the possible ramifications. A little girl is missing, abducted by the family’s house-cleaning demon, and it’s his job to find her. Eager to earn that paycheck, Matt’s enthusiasm soon lands him in trouble within the Hellspawn society, though that sure doesn’t stop him.
The definition of “splatterpunk” should give an idea of what this volume entails: characterised by the explicit description of horrific, violent, or pornographic scenes. With an abundance of monsters, gore, and sexual tones, it stays true to the nature of the sub-genre. My advice? Just be prepared.
Finally returning to the one place that’s caused him a great deal of pain in his life, Angel hires Shyla – a prostitute that has no idea what’s in store for her. Settling down into Room Six at the Lonely Motel, Angel begins their encounter with stories of that very room – terrible stories that Shyla finds hard to believe. Just what is Angel’s motive? Shyla will inevitably find out, one way or the other.
