"In Feliciano's Faith Healing House (Psychic Dentistry a Specialty), Benigno Feliciano is blown apart in mid-pull by a man who screams his own name over and over and then shoots himself. At first these deaths seem unrelated to two other equally bizarre murders among Manila's poor and homeless, but leave it to Lieutenant Felix Elizalde to find the connection. What does it have to do with the Gnome Home Acrobatic and One-Ring Sawdust Circus Café (Coffee, Meals, and Entertainment Three Times a Day)? At first there is talk of an illegal skeleton trade, then rumors of connections to the CIA. With truly frightening clarity, William Marshall unveils a grisly plan that's led by an elusive, demented 'whispering' man bent on extracting his own peculiar and terrifying form of revenge.".; Remainder; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
