Midwest Book Review


A dark work of speculative fiction so closely rooted in reality that it’s kind of scary with plenty of witticisms in the dialogue and moments of narrative joy . . . An accomplished work of fiction that will highly impress those with a dark sense of whimsy and a thirst for a truly unique tale.

Readers' Favorite


In a voice that seamlessly drops some of the best noir one-liners since Dashiell Hammett, Cavella both embraces the harsh cynicism of our modern age whilst pining for the values of an Americana long since passed.

—William M. Holden

Sharply written and wonderfully wrought, this dark comedy packs a powerful punch . . . Cavella’s confident handling of his protagonist’s different sides, the original plot, and the expert execution make this one a page-turner.

The Prairies Book Review

A fun mix of dark comedy, Western, and detective noir.

Stacey Horan, The Bookshop at the End of the Internet podcast

Part comedy, part detective novel, and part hard-nosed Western, Tabernacle ends up being something else entirely—an exploration of a modern man at his best and his worst . . . Hilarious, moving, and ultimately brilliant. 

C. D. Hines

Readers who are looking for something a little off-kilter will enjoy this book. It's a fast-paced dark comedy/crime story that will appeal to fans of the Coen Brothers, Ben Stiller, and similar artists.

The Indie View

Tabernacle has all the trappings of a future cult masterpiece, a thoughtful and entertaining mystery tale peppered with dark humor and Western undertones with a plot twist that will keep you engaged. Cavella’s ear for Southern speech and laconic style, along with a sharp-but-dark sense of humor, combine to make Tabernacle entertaining from start to finish.
