Passion Play

by Sean Stewart
Release date: 1992
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

The Redemption Presidency has transformed America. Adulterers are stoned. Executions are televised. But sin still exists. And so does murder...

It is a dark time. The great cities are dying, like the country, from the heart out. The Redemption Presidency tolerates vigilantes who kill according to Biblical example. The police subcontract freelancers to bring in criminals for quick and televised execution.

Diane Fletcher is one of these freelancers: a "shaper" cursed with the gift of seeing and feeling the emotions of others. Armed with hunter skills, she takes on the mysterious death of Jonathan Mask, a great actor found electrocuted in the costume of a demon. But even a shaper can become lost in the human labyrinth, where patterns of innocence, guilt, passion and deception lead inevitably into that treacherous territory between justice and vengeance.

”Dark and nastily believable... Sean Stewart is a talent to watch.” – William Gibson
