What is Heaven? What is Hell? How well do you know the people you chat with online? Thirty-seven-year-old Ellie Blake is about to find out when she joins a dark online forum seeking a suicide partner. When she meets Lori, she thinks she’s going to a nowhere hotel for a night of sex, torture, and suicide. What awaits her is a sadistic force that even suicide offers no escape from. He might be God or maybe the Devil. But in the end He wants all of humanity brought to its knees. Award winning author Nicole Cushing’s The Sadist Bible is “Cosmic. Transgressive. Suspenseful” A story that has not been seen since Clive Barker’s Hellbound Heart. From 01Publishing, The Sadist Bible is available on Audible and where paperbacks and ebooks are sold.
