About the Book:
Successful author Todd Klein and his wife Rosita live a quiet small town life. Todd's latest novel is selling well and despite recent budget cuts, Rosita relishes her job at the local library. After years of marriage, they're still in love, the mortgage to their suburban home is paid off, and their future is bright. Until, that is, Todd makes an appointment at the Department of Motor Vehicles to renew his license.
Jorge Guiterrez, Rosita's younger brother, hasn't been so lucky. A few months earlier, his bad temper finally caught up with him. After arguing with a supervisor, Jorge quit his cushy job and hasn't been able to find a new one. The bills are piling up and his wife is starting to pressure him. Until, one day, he is approached by a pair of mysterious strangers with an even more mysterious job offer...at the DMV.
Zal Tombasian, a young programmer at Data Initiatives, has a pretty boring existence. As his friend and co-worker Bernard tells him, "Your social life consists of sitting at home eating junk food and playing online games." Zal doesn't even bother to put up an argument. He's never been much for adventure. Until his company is hired to work on their largest account yet...by the DMV.
With his latest novel, Bentley Little's savage satire is on full display as he takes on everyone's worst nightmare, the DMV.

"Longtime master of horror fiction Little is back. Readers will think twice about renewing their licenses after reading DMV. Fans of Little’s work will enjoy his latest offering." - Booklist"Bentley Little is a one of a kind storyteller who creates an atmosphere of intense twisted deviance. Ominous context, repulsive individuals and an unholy creed create an environment that will leave a sick feeling in the pit of the reader’s stomach. This unorthodox brand of dark fiction often leaves an impression of hopelessness and of no escape from its disturbing pages." - Horror Bookworm Reviews
"This is Bentley Little at his mind-blowing best." - Well Worth A Read
