A fresh, daring and gory mash-up of the biblical tale of Judas Iscariot. Think you know mash-up fiction? Think again!
The price of betrayal is more than thirty pieces of silver.
Two days after Jesus Christ's crucifixion, Judas Iscariot receives an anonymous note stating, 'I know what you did'. Wrapped with it is an eye, complete with trailing optic nerve, and a splintered tooth - trophies ripped from two recently butchered friends. Someone, it seems, knows what Judas did on that fateful night following the Last Supper. And that someone is intent on exacting a bloody and gruesome revenge.
As more acquaintances and family members die in increasingly brutal ways, Judas finds himself in a desperate race against time to make amends for his act of treachery, and to uncover the identity of the mysterious hooded killer.
A relentlessly paced, gripping thriller, which further explores one of the darkest bargains in human history. You might just find yourself engaged in the unthinkable: rooting for the man who betrayed Christ.
