Adam Chamberlain’s life just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
The teenaged Christian youth minister and virginity advocate had his world torn apart when his fiancee, Beth, was brutally beheaded after being kidnapped while doing Peace Corps work in Africa.
After bending some of his morals in tracking down one of the men responsible, Adam witnessed the man’s suicide, however the desire to catch the man who wielded the blade that killed Beth still burns inside him.
The trail of the killer takes Adam, along with his black sheep sister, Cyndi, to Melbourne, coincidently where a major Christian speakers event is being held. But to get to the man he’s looking for, will Adam test his moral code even further by infiltrating a gay sex club — in costume? And what will his followers think if he gets caught?
Written by Steven Seagle (It’s A Bird…) and drawn by Becky Cloonan (Demo), American Virgin continues to be one of the most thought-provoking and astute books on the racks.
