Clean Kill (new title)

A concise handbook about mastering the writing and killing arts.
Barnes & Noble

Amazon Review by John D. Rachel

No one peers as intensely into the dark heart of the human soul as Conrad Johnson. If violence begets violence, then we are all doomed. But we know that already. "Jesus Told Me To Kill Her" renders the parallel pursuit of the writing and the killing arts masterfully.
