Excerpt:
                                                                     One
       The fact it was drizzling did not dim the useful moonlight. The body had been meticulously scrubbed with antibacterial soap; hair shampooed; new white underwear guarded against the old jeans. The plastic gloves and the rain slowed down the digging. The skies opened just a bit more, but enough to wash away progress. Voices from a distance slightly accelerated the final touches. The exact placement of the artifacts was crucial. Finally, success. It was a shallow grave, but it was never meant to be anything more than a beginning.

Review: PURIFIED by Elizabeth Sullivan

A significantly twisted mystery-crime-thriller set in urban Chicago, PURIFIED exposes racism, bigotry, and religious fundamentalism. Also exposed is a widespread practice which will turn the hearts and stomachs of many readers. In fact, this practice is at the core of the book, propelling acts both violent and obscene. I'm hard pressed to think of even one straight-and-narrow character here; even the protagonists are mentally or emotionally twisted. More than one character is beyond twisted and heading I to unspeakable [including characters who remain offstage]. PURIFIED is a rage against practices that dishonor individuals and the human species.
