If Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers ever teamed up to make a film, Toxicity might be the end result.
Imagine the surreal universes penned by Philip K. Dick smashing into the gritty realities of Elmore Leonard, and you might have an idea of what type of book you’re about to get yourself into.
Toxicity is violent, repulsive, charming, and completely ridiculous. It’s a dark comedy for those without a soul.
Oh to be a fly on the wall ...
When Maddox Kane is released from prison, he has no idea what the world has become. His ex-wife’s hooked up with a heroin addict, his daughter’s busy burying dead bodies behind drugstores, and his brother’s being held prisoner by an abusive lot lizard named Jazzy. Plus, apparently, there’s a new drug out on the street called Purple, and it’s going to destroy the world. Or, at least, make you commit unspeakable acts against Zooey Deschanel.
Darkly comedic and absurdly tragic, TOXICITY is a tale of horrible things happening to horrible people.“Max Booth III is a star on the rise!”
—Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award winning author of FLESH EATERS ADVANCED PRAISE FOR TOXICITY
“TOXICITY is about as over-the-top insane as anything you’ll read this year, but without ever sacrificing character or story. It’s a fast-paced, amusing, and wonderfully gross ride!” —Jeff Strand, author of WOLF HUNT
"With TOXICITY Max Booth III has put together a rare story indeed. It's quirky, surreal, laugh-out-loud funny, well peppered with unexpected moments, and above all, jaw-clenching intense. Highly recommended!" —Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award winning author of BLACK & ORANGE
"Misfits, mayhem and Zooey Deschanel. Max Booth III's foray into the underbelly of life is like being sucker-punched by Tarantino. He offers a world where Desperation is more than a state of despair, Jesus is a housefly determined to begin an apocalypse, and greed is a skewer that pierces the heart of the dammed." —Craig Wallwork, author of THE SOUND OF LONELINESS
“TOXICITY seeps under your skin, infecting you with black comedy, shocking violence, and the stinking desperation of bad people rotting in the sun. And yet somehow, we still root for these dark souls—and that is the genius of Max Booth III.” —Richard Thomas, author of STARING INTO THE ABYSS
“Quick-witted and outrageous, this book is truly not for everyone (i.e. those puritanical and/or sane). But if you get excited envisioning something that’s like ‘Pulp Fiction’ mixed with a dose of the supernatural and a wicked sense of humor, TOXICITY should top your reading list.” —Eric J. Guignard, Bram Stoker Award nominated editor of AFTER DEATH…
“TOXICITY is a gritty, raw, unvarnished descent toward the kind of redemption only a modern noir can offer. Where this ends, though, are some eerily timely places, with some rather rough characters you can't help but become fascinated by. If the end of the world is coming, this is probably what'd it'd feel like.” —John Palisano, author of NERVES
