       Additional Information  
      The Reverend Sally Applegate, a newly ordained deacon in a London parish, and her husband, Michael, a policeman, have already been experiencing hard times in their marriage for some time as The Four Last Things opens. When their daughter, Lucy, is kidnapped they grow even farther apart. Each turns initially away from the other and towards the source of their faith: for Lucy, it is the church, and for Michael, the police. Meanwhile the kidnappers, a pedophile named Eddie and a female serial killer named Angel, find themselves unexpectedly touched by the little girl they've abducted--a situation that makes this already unstable couple even more volatile and unpredictable. As a series of grisly discoveries of body parts seems to indicate that Lucy is in imminent danger of becoming the next victim, Sally and Michael's faith in themselves, each other, and the institutions that have nurtured them is tested to the breaking point.
