Review quote

The Redemption Factory is like a weird gothic dream. The abattoir in the story is fantastic, straight out of Hieronymous Bosch. Indeed, the grotesqueness of many of the characters makes one imagine that Nick Cave is writing a paean to small-town life...the plot elements come together nicely, in their own dark way... -- Booklist While most writers sit in their study and make it up, Sam Millar has lived it and every sentence in his new novel, The Redemption Factory, evokes a searing truth about men, their dark past, and the code by which they live. Great title, great read. Disturbingly brutal. I enjoyed it immensely. -- Cyrus Nowrasteh A distinctive style and a compelling story. Has all the making of a Hollywood blockbuster. -- Books Ireland
