The year is 2013 and at the bottom of the social pyramid, the Hillevåg gang wake up with dry lips, paranoia and swine flu. The gangsters from the richest city in the world thought they had put the worst behind them, only to discover that the steepest hill yet is right in front of them: Jan Inge, Cecilie and Rudi are up to their hairlines in stress and up to their necks in blood.
But worst of all, the cracks are starting to show in Jan Inge. What are those sounds in the Video Boy’s head? What is this ghost rising up from the murky depths of the past? And why does he keep hearing a strange name whispered in the dark?
As Tore Renberg takes off the handbrake for the fourth book in the Teksas series, all that awaits at the end of the road is doom and a terrifying liberation.
