"A distraught businessman who is looking for help walks into the office of a mouthy detective named Jules Bettinger, has a conversation, walks out, and kills himself. Because of this incident, the impolite but decorated policeman is forced to relocate himself and his family from their warm lives in Arizona to the frigid north and work for an understaffed precinct in Victory, Missouri. This collapsed rustbelt city is a dying beast that devours itself and gnaws at its inhabitants ... and has done so for more than three decades. The streets are covered with dead pigeons and there are seven hundred criminals for every law enforcer. Partnered with a boorish and demoted corporal named Dominick Williams, Jules Bettinger investigates a double homicide in which two policemen were killed. Suspicious by nature and vocation, the detective looks for answers in the fringes of the city and in the pasts of the secretive men with whom he works--men who brutalized a local drug dealer until he was disabled. Jules Bettinger soon begins to suspect that the double homicide is not an isolated event, but part of a larger plot ... a prelude to a series of cop executions"--

Corpus Chrome, Inc. by S. Craig Zahler( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Decades in the future Corpus Chrome, Inc. develops a robotic body, dubbed a 'mannequin, ' that can revive, sustain and interface with a cryonically-preserved human brain. Like all new technology, it is copyrighted. Hidden behind lawyers and a chrome facade, the inscrutable organization resurrects a variety of notable minds, pulling the deceased back from oblivion into a world of animated sculpture, foam rubber cars, dissolving waste and strange terrorism. Nobody knows how Corpus Chrome, Inc. determines which individuals should be given a second life, yet myriad people are affected. Among them are Lisanne Breutschen, the composer who invented sequentialism with her twin sister, and Champ Sappline, a garbage man who is entangled in a war between the third, fourth and fifth floors of a New York City apartment building. In the Spring of 2058, Corpus Chrome, Inc. announces that they will revive Derek W.R. Dulande -- a serial rapist and murderer who was executed thirty years ago for his crimes. The public is horrified by the decision, and before long, the company's right to control the lone revolving door between life and death will be violently challenged"--Back cover

"Zahler ist ein herausragender Geschichtenerzähler, dessen geradezu grausamer Sinn für Authentizität den Leser regelrecht in den Wilden Westen um die Jahrhundertwende hinein katapultiert." [Kurt Russel - Schauspieler, bekannt aus Bone Tomahawk, Die Klapperschlange, Hateful Eight, Dark Blue und Death Proof] "Wenn Sie nach einem Westernroman in der Art suchen, die sie schon kennen, dann liegen Sie hier falsch. Wenn Sie etwas Angenehmes und Vorhersehbares lesen wollen, liegen sie hier erst recht falsch. Aber wenn Sie eine mutige Geschichte lesen wollen, aus einem ungewöhnlichen Blickwinkel und mit einer unvergesslichen Erzählstimme, dann suchen Sie das Gleiche wie ich, und dann suchen Sie genau dieses Buch." [Joe R. Lansdale] Inhalt: Bei ihrem verzweifelten Versuch, zwei entführte Schwestern zu befreien, die man in die Prostitution gezwungen hat, stürmt eine Gruppe wild zusammengewürfelter Charaktere durch das Mexiko des Jahres 1899. Ihre Reise ist dabei nicht nur ein Ritt in die Hölle, sondern auch in die tiefsten Abgründe menschlicher Existenzen. Diese Geschichte zerrt Sie von Anfang bis Ende erbarmungslos durch Staub, Dreck und Blut. Ähnlich wie in seinem Film "Bone Tomahawk" schuf S. Craig Zahler mit diesem Buch eine außergewöhnliche Western-Erfahrung, die Elemente des Horrors mit der brachialen Gewalt des Asiatischen Kinos vereint. Sagen Sie nicht, wir hätten Sie nicht gewarnt ... WIE SCHATTEN ÜBER TOTEM LAND ist roh, brutal und unnachgiebig. Ein Roman, der an vielen Stellen bekannte Stoffe der großen Leinwand oder der Pulp-Literatur zitiert, und trotzdem ein Western ist, der seinesgleichen sucht
