Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
<p>It's the story "They" don't want you to read. Though, to be fair, "They" are probably right about this one. To quote the Bible, "Learning the truth can be like loosening a necktie, only to realize it was the only thing keeping your head attached." No, don't put the book back on the shelf -- it is now your duty to purchase it to prevent others from reading it. Yes, it works with e-books, too, I don't have time to explain how.</p> <p>While investigating a fairly straightforward case of a shape-shifting interdimensional child predator, Dave, John and Amy realized there might actually be something weird going on. Together, they navigate a diabolically convoluted maze of illusions, lies, and their own incompetence in an attempt to uncover a terrible truth they -- like you -- would be better off not knowing.</p> <p>Your first impulse will be to think that a story this gruesome -- and, to be frank, stupid -- cannot possibly be true. That is precisely the reaction "They" are hoping for.</p> <p> John Dies at the End 's "smart take on fear manages to tap into readers' existential dread on one page, then have them laughing the next" ( Publishers Weekly ) and This Book is Full of Spiders was "unlike any other book of the genre" ( Washington Post ). Now, New York Times bestselling author David Wong is back with What the Hell Did I Just Read , the third installment of this black-humored thriller series.</p>
