Take a once famous psychiatrist, serial killer, ice pick and a touch a lobotomy and you have the making of a wickedly good story. Oh also add a small town full of "odd" people with a wide variety of mental health issues just for a bit of extra fun. Also maybe just a tad of messiah complex as well.
Jon Bassoff impressed me with the dark tale he has placed on the pages of the Incurables. A great cast of dysfunctional characters all with some major issues make this book a wonderfully wicked and disturbing. I found myself flying through this book and loving every minute of it.
