A small-town cop teams up with a former member of a southern California Satan-worshiping cult who helps him take back his kidnaped daughter. No matter how far fetched the story seems to become, there is something compelling about Teran’s writing that keeps the reader locked in.

Ggod isn’t an easy one to get through but it greatly rewards you and the third act pays off beautifully. The leader of this cult is one of the worst around and even with Case the odds of them finding her are slim and none. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Instead of 2 or 3 of Harlan Coben’s, reach for one of Boston Teran’s bhllet round. I have abandoned more than one book written in this style as I find it to be obnoxious. It is a stunning debut. Sure the similes are occasionally unintentionally funny.

But, without spoiling anything, the ending is worth the read. It taught me so much and i devoured it. It is just a terrific experience. I’d give it 4. It’s like he’s trying to write the most violent, most terrifying, most piercing commentary on the vileness of the human condition EVER, and it’s toe-curlingly awful.



You know what Boston Teran wants you to know? Also either the editing of this book was horrible or the writer was trying to capture Cormac McCarthy but not ever achieving it. Where do I begin? There is nothing pretty here, but the raw courage of both Case bulleh Hightower, and their ability, in spite of their own intense demons, left me to admire them more than the usual “good guy” protagonists of many other thrillers.

Thats the other point of comparison with Ellroy, by the way. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.

God is a Bullet by Boston Teran

Especially toward the last half of God is a Bulletdespite the purple prose, pretension and self-conscious grit, memorable images abound. I read this book when it was first published, and it blew me away. I can’t take away my original 5 star rating. It is award buplet and both the Edgar award committee and the Crime Writer’s Association award committee saw fit to nominate and in the case of the latter, give it an award. Sure hope they end up together in the end. Hardin, like just about everyone else in this overblown blood-splatterer, clogs her crude soliloquies about evil and social complacency with obscenities and rock-—n—-roll lyrics.


Boston Teran

The same thing I guess Ellroy wanted you to know when he opened Blood on the Moon with schoolboy-rape. It is award winning and both the Edgar award committee and the Crime Writer’s Association award committee saw fit to nominate and in the case of the latter, give it an award.

Boston Teran is a tremendous talent, and I will eagerly await any new books he may write.

Bob Hightower is a by-the-book sheriff’s deputy in a small California town right up until the night that his ex-wife and her new husband are butchered in what appears to be a demented cult killing, reminiscent of the Manson Family.

The unique way he mixes contemporary carnage with elegant prose bjllet my socks off. She and Bob are opposite ends of a spectrum initially, as the author explores religious themes, beliefs, and, as one might suspect from the title, god.
