Abstract:
"Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, The Devil All the Time follows a cast of compelling and bizarre characters from the end of World War II to the 1960s. There{u2019}s Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can{u2019}t save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer no matter how much sacrifi{u00AD}cial blood he pours on his prayer log. There{u2019}s Carl and Sandy Henderson, a husband-and-wife team of serial killers, who troll America{u2019}s highways searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. There{u2019}s the spider-handling preacher Roy and his crippled virtuoso-guitar-playing sidekick, Theodore, running from the law. And caught in the middle of all this is Arvin Eugene Russell, Willard and Charlotte{u2019}s orphaned son, who grows up to be a good but also violent man in his own right"--Jacket.
