MADBALL is the story of people in travelling show. A killer is loose among them, and hidden somewhere in the tents and gear is $42,000 in stolen money …

Logical add-on to the old phrase about a busybody never resting. Fred Brown’s Lenient Beast is a five-part narrative telling of the perfect crime. The killer is driven not out of lust, greed or any of the usual sobs, rather ‘cause he cares so much for all of us.

This novel of serial killings garners its strength from the bluntness and crispness of Brown’s narrative; this is a detective novel with no moody lighting, no one-liners and no super cool hero. Each chapter presents a different view point, yet each latches onto the previous chapter to create a stifling tale of a week in a small town in the US south with a killer on the lose. This is the literary equivalent of Jim Jarmusch’s Night on Earth or Mystery Train — this is Pynchon rather than Spillane.

One night when a desperate rapist-killer stalked a town, ten hours of panic and terror that turned the night into a nightmare. For as the net tightened around the killer more and more people became entangled in a chain of events that ended in an explosion of maniacal savagery
