The Last Bad Job is the story of a reporter on a hell of an assignment: Five months on a New Mexico desert compound to cover the next Jonestown. For one reporter, it could be a career-maker. But when a cult member close to him drowns herself, he decides to run for it, and sets unimaginable events into motion.
The Last Bad Job is a dark and comic journey through sex, drugs, cults, suicide, the apocalypse, and what comes after it.
