After getting past the terror and discomfort, he reasoned that there was nothing to worry about. He would be missed. He had loved ones who would call the police. All he had to do was wait. Letting this woman tell him a story was as good a stall as any.
The mysterious woman wove a tale of betrayed love and unwanted, unnatural experiments placed upon her. Of a loving wife, working on a top secret government program. Of a husband searching for love in all the wrong places. The prisoner couldn't believe what he was being told. A descent into insanity, fueled by a jealous rage, ended with using the tools of science for torture and revenge.
With every blink of her lovely eyes, licking of her full lips, and heaving of her perfect breasts, the captor told a story most bizarre. Of a woman bent on teaching her cheating husband a lesson.

Sexual Healing and some Ch-ch-changes
Ok, so normally if I woke up duct taped to a chair with a sultry woman before me it would be a Friday. In the other Ray's case (I'm Ray, too) this doesn't hold the same amount of potential for fun. In fact, poor ole Ray has no idea what he is in for, and it is a lot.
Turns out the sexy babe is named Eve, and she has a little 'speramentin' to do on Ray. Turns out he's a great test subject for the experiments, and as she does her thing to him, she tells him her tale of woe, and how she came to be the woman he sees before her. A tale of a lover cheating and the revenge that is exacted upon his cheatin' butt! Stockholm sydrome kicks in and Ray starts to fall for Eve. The rest is up to you to find out.
I have to say, as medical thrillers go, this is a great one. I just finished one called Still, and it was top shelf, and now this one? Man, I am on a roll with lucky finds. I will be honest and say that there are some disturbing things that go on in this book, and there are some sexual events, so if you can't take sex, or have a weak stomach stay away. No, better yet, read this and toughen yourself up. No need to be a pansy or a prude all your life. The book really knows how to draw tension, and it does the smart thing by making the villain malicious, and Ray unsympathetic. You don't have to root for someone to enjoy a great story. Sometimes, watching people get what they deserve can be rewarding, and sometimes you just have to look at the accident on the side of the road. This is like that. It is so creepy that you will not be able to stop, and so disturbing once you learn the truth that you will read just to see what happens. The writing style is such that it demands your attention, and does not let you go. Each scene draws you one step deeper until you realize that you are so far in there is no turning back. Sincerely, each scene builds upon the other, and drives home the story faster and faster.
Kathryn LaPlante is the narrator, and she really embodies Eve. She plays a great Ray as well. She plays sultry and seductive as easily as spreading soft butter on bread, and psycho crazy so well that you would think she had taken lessons from Perkins and Hopkins.
Overall, I think this book really sets out to do what Kirch wanted to do. He makes a rather strong points on issues such as fidelity, medical ethics, sense of identity, and medical mutilation. I really enjoyed this book, even though it made me think about some odd topics, and consider things that I never had before. It really is a play on responsibility. We have a responsibility to others whether it is as a partner or doctor, and there are terrible consequences for those who fail to meet their obligations.
I have to comment on the book cover. I absolutely adore the homage to those 1960's and 70's EC horror comics. That pulpy look just fits, and reveals just what kind of story you are about to get. The choice could not have been better. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
This is an excellent novel. One that is disturbing, emotional, and gets under your skin so swiftly that you wish Eve had just pulled a Lorena Bobbit on Ray. If you like medical dramas, stories about kidnapping, strange experiments, or even crazy people doling out justice look no further. If you enjoy well written, perfectly paced, character driven stories you have found the perfect book. Read it now if you dare!

Misery, Frankenstein and Blow Jobs
JACK WEBB and other old references
This is way different from anything else I have listened to. It is really out there, so if your not in the mood for different, don't buy. Despite the subject matter the book is fairly well written. The main character is a female mad scientist. There is a lot of sex and a lot of hummers. It gets gross and smelly in parts. The science is pretty weak. This is more a Horror than a Science Fiction. I liked the first four hours, followed by two average hours and a good ending. No twists though, it is predictable. I might try something else from this author.
