Description


Life is not getting easier for Spider Jerusalem, as he is starting to have blackouts and episodes of mental confusion not related to his usual diet of narcotics and whiskey! Can investigative reporter Spider Jerusalem still fight the injustices of the 21st-century Babylon...or has the corrupted city taken one more soul?

Having had enough of the warped 21st-century Babylon that he lives in, Spider escapes into a world of bitterness and pills. As he stumbles through this haze of depression and drugs, he must find a way to cover the biggest story of the year, the presidential election. Armed with only his demented mind and dark sense of humor, Spider embarks on an adventure of political cynicism, horrific sex, and unwelcome celebrity that culminates in a shocking and ruinous ending.
