Publisher's Summary

You haven't heard of William Colton Hughes. Or, if you have, then you're not telling anybody. Not telling them anything, ever. He's not the serial killer on the news, in the textbooks. He's the one out there still punching his card, and a few other people's too. He is a nightmare come to life, waiting in his apartment for you to knock on his door.

William Colton Hughes is living his fantasy: his victims are delivered to his apartment every few days. But when he's suddenly alone, no visitors, nobody to talk to but himself, he begins to lose what little of his mind he has left. Has his benefactor, his employer, been his prison warden all along? His apartment complex a hospital? Is he going to have to go back to heaving dark plastic bags into dumpsters when nobody's looking?

Or will Dashboard Mary, a mysterious woman hell-bent on revenge, get to him first?

This is William Colton Hughes. Come and knock on his door.

Confusing & Intriguing

I was lost most of the time. Almost all of it is just an off kilter stream of consciousness of paranoid, sick, middle-age killer, Billy (William Colton Hughes). I thought I caught up in the last 1.5 hrs of the book, but then I got lost again. One moment to the next I wasn't sure who was real or in Billy's head and who was dead or alive. I'm still left scratching my head. I continued to listen because the narrator was so good, and I kept thinking I would catch up. In spite of everything, I was still curious and intrigued. And it's so rambling, as a stream of consciousness, I couldn't skip to the end and hope to understand anything. Other than the narrator and the effective strangeness of this book, it also was humorous in a sick way, at times, like the nicknames he called some of his victims and enemies.
