Across four differentdistricts of a city that has torn itself to shreds, four differentinterweaving tales (each written by a different author) play out. In"Four Corners," a morally dubious banker must keep his employer happy at any cost. The next story, "Punhos Sagrados," concerns a boxer who finds himself torn between honor and the woman he loves. "Golden Geese"follows a hardened criminal with a terrifying condition who must come to terms with the life he's led. Finally, "Jamais Vu" provides a stunningdenouement as a man searches endless for his missing daughter, a taskwhich is complicated by a peculiar condition: his inability to recognize faces. Told in rugged, bare-knuckled prose, The Soul Standard is a nonstop thrill-ride down the darkened avenues and through the shadowed alleys of a nightmare town.
