Artemis Lamb lives a complicated life. Spirit-seeing clairvoyant, medical malpractice investigator, and trained assassin, she has grown accustomed to walking the thin line between the everyday and the otherworldly. There’s not much that can shock her anymore.
But that doesn’t mean she’s not a little surprised when her employer, Caduceus Re, sends her to investigate a medical malpractice case at a mysterious hospital out in Selene, Kentucky. The plaintiff lawyer, Jerome Jenkins, has been gibbering something about human experimentation, opioid-riddled bodies kept alive, and lab-grown mycelia—and the hospital director, one Dr. Demetrius, is being anything but forthcoming.
But Artemis soon finds the case goes far deeper than one mystery-shrouded surgeon. In the eerily silent Most High Cemetery, she meets Satan itself. Under its control is the tortured soul of her lost lover, Benjamin, and his orphaned child, who yet lives . . . for as long as Satan allows it.
Amanita is the dark, philosophical tale of one woman’s journey into a world divided by love and hate, life and death, humanity and obscenity. As thrilling as it is moving, it’s a must for fans of supernatural fiction and intelligent drama alike.
