    A dying assassin is given one last assignment and one last chance for survival. The job: to find God Almighty and destroy Him. The payment: eternal life. With the aid of a beautiful lady gambler, an ancient Hollywood witch, and a telepathic smartass of a girl, Dell Ammo breaches the gates of Heaven and Hell to pull the Cosmic Trigger.

    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]Self-consciously styled after a hard-boiled detective novel, this is a most unusual and entertaining work of satirical SF. An assassin by trade, Dell Ammo works in a bombed-out section of Los Angeles that has been irradiated by a nuclear explosion. Terminally ill, Ammo is offered immortality by a millionaire evangelist if he will do one job: kill God. Accepting the assignment, Ammo embarks on a bizarre hunt through postnuclear L.A., assisted by Ann Perrine, a woman claiming to be an accountant but whose skills are considerably more interesting, and a nymphet with powerful, sexually telepathic abilities. In his search for God, Ammo encounters a powerful group of clerics eager to protect God, the source of their power, whether he exists or not. In other hands this could be pretentiously silly, but Koman carries it off with wit and energy.

    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]"...a tightly written, well-paced suspense fantasy that succeeds on many levels.... a satire, adventure, and suspense novel told with great skill and interesting invention. The Jehovah Contract... is conceptually audacious to the max." -- Norman Spinrad[/TD]

    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]"The Jehovah Contract will surely be excoriated in religious and literary circles, but this damnation of God should be pondered objectively by both believers and nonbelievers. It is a good, thought-provoking effort that is that rarity in fiction: philosophy that entertains." -- Piers Anthony[/TD]

    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]"One of the most difficult assignments any writer can undertake is to imitate a famous style of this kind with both serious and comic intent. And Koman pulls it off beautifully. His book is a parody of a Chandleresque detective novel that can hold its own with Chandler and the best of his followers." -- San Jose Mercury-News, 5/17/87[/TD]
