The Department of Lost Souls

From the deranged minds of Rob Werner and Tom Misuraca comes a novel 20 years in the making: THE DEPARTMENT OF LOST SOULS! A tale so mind-boggling that Tom and Rob had to write alternate chapters of it without knowing what the other would write next, lest they go mad from writing it all down at once! And now you get to read it! If you read one book about hit men, beat poets, gay circus clowns, and a giant cannoli on wheels this year–read this one! WARNING: Contains strong language, adult-ish situations, and characters with unfortunate body odors. Buy the paperback now! Or on Kindle! Listen to a sample here!
