Meet Arthur Blume: a charming guy, small-town English professor, struggling writer, and occasional murderer. In this debut novel, R. M. Kinder channels Arthur's voice to reveal the aberrant thought processes of a surprisingly sympathetic serial killer. Horror arises as it does in real life, in brief hints and disclosures that gradually reveal the complex nature of an all-too-human narrator.
