The Minus Man : Vann Siegert is by all appearances an ordinary man. With only his truck and a few possessions, he has moved cross-country to start a new life, taking a temporary holiday job at the post office in a small Massachusetts town. But when the urge calls him, Vann takes to the road - armed with a poisoned flask of liquor and a smile that strangers trust. Woe to those who accept his comfort - junkies, hitchhikers, a high school football star, Vann gathers his victims like moths to a flame. A harrowing journey inside the mind of a disquietingly compassionate psychopath. The Minus Man is an unforgettable literary experience.
