The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death: A Novel by Charlie Huston
So I finished “Frankenstein Lives Again” around 1am and I still felt like reading so I fumbled around for something new. I had no idea who Charlie Huston was or any real details about “The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death: A Novel” and was just hoping to keep my brain from decaying a little before bedtime. What I got was a roller-coaster ride into the strange world of the Clean-Team a group of men who are hired to do just as their name implies. Cleaning up after the disgusting and grotesque including suicides and violent crimes - relishing in graphic descriptions the story is interesting as it is horrifying. Charlie Huston reminds me a lot of Joe Lansdale whom I enjoy so I was quite happy even though it kept me up reading all-night. Fun, gross enjoyment - Huston has a new fan.
