Lewis Gannett. Gehenna (1997) 249 pp. [pbo]
Publishers description: Criminal profiler Frank Black believed the face of evil was a human face—until the investigation of grisly murders in San Francisco introduces him to a world where evil may be an entity of greater power than he ever imagined. The discovery of several pounds of human ashes—the remains of murder victims burned alive—leads Frank and the Millennium Group to uncover a cult awaiting Armageddon. Franks search for the cult leader brings him face-to-face with a man whose power is so baffling, whose influence is so pervasive, that he tests Franks understanding of the nature of evil. Based on characters created by Chris Carter for the Fox television program Millennium.
Setting: San Francisco
