Welcome to Ben Bluman’s world. Is he in a coma living a dark life from a bed in the ICU of Saint Bernard’s Hospital in Chicago or is he purely evil and descending deeper into the depths of madness? Is he a control freak or is he insane? The decision is yours, and one you will not make lightly.
The story of Ben Bluman pulled me in from the very beginning. I was captivated by his struggles and how things can go terribly wrong even when the best intentions are there. I couldn’t wait to hear what happened next and was unprepared for the shocker of an ending. Whether you read or listen to this book, you will be unable to stop until you are done.
This was an excellent story written by two masters of suspense, Steven Nedelton and Joseph Parente. It was narrated by William Dupuy, who has a voice I could listen to all day.

When Ben Blumen is not strangling or stabbing people, or throwing them out of a window, he seems like a nice enough guy. He has a job, he has a friend and work colleagues, he has a nice apartment, goes out to lunch and dinner, and he even has dates. I found myself rooting for Ben, almost all the way to the end of “Coma Sins,” this excellent crime noir thriller written by Steven Nedelton and Joseph Parente, and narrated by William Dupuy.
Right from the beginning of this suspenseful story, Ben had my sympathy as he escapes from two policemen who ran him down while driving drunk and are about to finish him off. Even when he kills the cops, I was still in his corner. With two against one, Ben was the innocent and injured party at this point. As the writers wind this tale tighter and tighter, I was not easily persuaded of Ben’s guilt. Even when I realized that Ben suffered from schizophrenia. I questioned who was at fault. The government that used Ben in its own sinister conspiracy? His shrink who played along? The doctor who gave him medication, not to control Ben’s illness, but to turn him into a puppet that does the government’s bidding? The web of lies and deceit that leaves Ben unsuspecting of the truth is so enormous that my sympathies stayed with him almost to the end. Like Ben, while he lies in a coma, I never knew what was the truth or the nightmarish dreams of an innocent victim.
Well done, Steven Nedelton and Joseph Parente, and William Dupuy does an excellent job of narration!
