Someone is killing mobsters in brutal and hideous ways, and it’s up to the city’s best cop to find the killer, even if his extreme methods put him at odds with his superiors. That cop is Jesus Christ. Yes, that Jesus Christ. No longer a simple carpenter’s son, he’s come back as a pulp hardboiled detective with a quick mouth and quicker fists!
This short story (around 4,000 words) contains violence, swearing, more swearing, violence, a handful of sexual references, more swearing and, finally, more violence. It shouldn’t be read by children, the religiously over-sensitive or people of a generally nervous disposition.
Bonus! – The 2012 edition includes the opening of the never-completed sequel, “Hardboiled Jesus & The Root Of All Evil”, which is even ruder and more infantile. Don’t hate me for it.
