"The twists and turns will keep you flipping the pages ... the story grips and doesn't let go."

"Imaginative, immersive and captivating ... a story with a unique mix of adventure, gore and complex characters that you will want to read again and again."
"This is a strong piece of horror that incorporates a decent amount of gore, but pulls on the reins before things become overwhelming ... When all is said and done, this is one book I suggest you make some time for. Read it ... relish it. The Hand of Osiris is a quality piece of fiction."

"Ye Serpents, Ye generation of vipers, How can ye escape The damnation of Gehenna?"
- Matthew 23:33
1879 -- Outlaw Jedediah Sykes has just killed the wrong man, the nephew of a powerful rail baron. Now he’s on the run and bounty hunter Jacob Hatcher is hot on his trail. But when Hatcher's Apache guides refuse to go any further, warning that the lands ahead are cursed by an ancient and nameless evil, Jacob is forced to go the trail alone–a trail that leads him to a town, a dark paradise of sin and vice called Gehenna.
Hatcher and Sykes soon become entangled in the mysteries of Gehenna’s peculiar denizens: a fire & brimstone Jesuit preaching to a city of lost souls, and a shadowy figure who rules over the town like a living god. When one of them makes a choice that threatens to damn them all, the rest must work together to find a stolen key that can unlock the domain of the dead.
In their search, they'll not only confront their own demons, but the hidden horrors of Gehenna itself.
"There are loud, miserable, dark characters in this “Weird West” novel, but the fun is in the frontier grittiness that Cavallo provides. Lots of harrowing descriptions of an evil West – and the morally and spiritually empty places there. A very mean wild west."
"Despite the desert heat, this story was extremely chilling! The characters are vividly brought to life, and the action, intrigue and unexpected twists are a dark delight."

"...a towering feat of imagination...it never loses sight of a tight narrative and drive, coupled with a steady pace of action and suspense...Cavallo has a strong command of language and his descriptive powers are first rate."
