Agony in Violet (The Heretic Arcanum #1)

Rick Wayne     Supernatural Mystery   44 Pages

One part literary, one part culinary, three parts magic, THE HERETIC ARCANUM is the most devilish meal you’ll ever read.

A strange and gruesome illness slithers through New York. Afflicted at random, all of the victims suffer an apparent overdose of chemotherapy, yet none of them have cancer.

When the thirteenth case — a small boy very near death — hits the news, the authorities are desperate and turn to an unlikely consultant. Part shaman, part chef, he unlocks for them a bizarre world of bioluminescence, sin-eating, and killer cuisine.

But what — or who — is on the menu?

This is a very compact and fast paced introduction to the underground world of Etude Etranger

I found Agony in Violet to be packed with fun fringe ideas, interestingly odd characters, and excellent prose.
