Headless by K.D.
When workaday author John Barlow is asked to ghostwrite a novel about secretive tax havens, he assumes the job will be straightforward. Then he learns that his employers, Swedish conceptual artist duo Goldin+Senneby, want him to investigate Headless Ltd., a shadowy company with possible links to French philosophy and human sacrifice. Barlow travels to the Bahamas, the mecca of offshore finance, to uncover the mystery of Headless. Soon he is consumed by the dark world of covert capitalism and secret societies and his probing becomes desperate. The more he grasps at the threads of the labyrinthine plot, the closer he comes to madness.
