“A COIN FOR CHARON” by Dallas Mullican

 

“GABRIEL ISN’T MURDERING ANYONE. HE’S SAVING THEM.”

The media has dubbed him the Seraphim Killer. He believes the gods have charged him to release The Chosen—those for whom life has become an unbearable torment. Gabriel feels their suffering: his hands burn; his skull thunders; his stomach clenches. Once they are free, he places gold coins over their eyes, to pay Charon for passage into Paradise.

DETECTIVE MARLOWE GENTRY HAS SPENT THE PAST TWO YEARS ON THE EDGE.

The last serial killer he hunted murdered his wife before his eyes, and left his young daughter a mute shell. Whenever the girl looks at him, her dead eyes push him farther into a downward spiral of pain and regret.

The Seraphim Killer is his opportunity for revenge, a chance to forgive himself—or die trying.

Is gabriel a messenger of god? Is marlowe on a mission of redemption—or revenge? The truth is hiding somewhere in the night.”

 

 


WHO IS DALLAS MULLICAN?

After spending twenty years as the lead singer of a progressive metal band, Dallas Mullican turned his creative impulses toward writing. Raised on King, Barker, and McCammon, he moved on to Poe and Lovecraft, enamored with the macabre. During his time at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he received degrees in English and Philosophy, Dallas developed a love for the Existentialists, Shakespeare, Faulkner, and many more great authors and thinkers. Incorporating this wide array of influences, he entices the reader to fear the bump in the night, think about the nature of reality, and question the motives of their fellow humans.

A pariah of the Deep South, Dallas doesn’t understand NASCAR, hates Southern rock and country music, and believes the great outdoors consists of walking to the mailbox and back. He remains a metalhead at heart, and can be easily recognized by his bald head and Iron Maiden t-shirt.
