He will have to make it past the boundaries of time and labyrinth of events to make them pay. Valentine, the superstar brand ambassador who sells anything for a price; Medici, a pharmaceutical company in the dock for unverified drug trials; Dr Ranga who won’t stop his sinister perversions. And Este, the prostitute whose cruel secret blows up a daughter’s sanity. Will Officer Rane connect the clues in time to prevent another murder? Deeply unsettling, HUNGRY GODS takes a hard look at the acquisitive soul of a people who exploit and acquire. You will be surprised by who it finds there.
