JA Kruger – the gift of the dead

The Gift Of The Dead

(and the confusing decadence of madness)

“How does an awkward, invisible guy end up with the most desired woman? How does this awkward guy end up in a mental hospital? What made this awkward guy murder and torture and rape?” These are the questions plaguing a psychiatrist who has been forced into unravelling John’s mind.


John Lensing is in a mental institution awaiting trial for murder and numerous other crimes while a court-appointed psychiatrist probes into his past to determine the cause and reality of his psychosis. What he finds is a labyrinth of madness in a confused individual.


Having been sheltered from the outside world for most of his life, John discovers a life he was never ready for; however, is coaxed into by a free-spirited, tattooed goddess and her hedonistic lifestyle of drugs and debauchery. In this new life, the socially awkward John’s mental state alters as he starts giving in to his own violent and obsessive thoughts.
