"I was pretty sure I’d had sex with Mallory Worner, which would’ve been great, really—Who finally got laid? Pincer-monster me, folks!—but I was also pretty sure we’d killed someone last night…"
Triple-Six, certified pincered freak-show, hasn't exactly had the best week. Mallory, his semi-girlfriend, framed him for murder. His already-freakish body is mutating uncontrollably. He's rotting away in a solitary confinement cell. His only chance of escape involves summoning an undead serial killer from Hell.
Lorraine Worner. Texan pyromaniac. Killer arsonist.
He bargains with Lorraine. If she can’t kill him in three days, she’ll remove his Hands—the paralyzing pincers that’ve ruined his life thus far. Lorraine accepts. She seems to know too much about him...
All he has to do is run. Right?
