Geoffrey Neil, his beautiful wife and talkative son live in Los Angeles with a useless, ungrateful fish that Geoffrey threatens at least once daily. Writing novels has proven to be a grueling process for Geoffrey, but he can't break the obsession even though he tries to prioritize sleep, TV and people over keyboards. His books provide a satisfying scare with very little blood, a tactic many readers find equally assaulting on the senses. Geoffrey's overactive imagination and genuine fear of almost everything are tools that help him write novels, but also get him wound tighter than an eight-day clock. His wife calls him the mayor of Stress Town. Go try one of his books. It will make the poor guy feel better ... and that could save a pathetic fish.
A ruthless vigilante ends homelessness using terror to force brotherly love. He imposes a horrific fate on those who don't display flagrant kindness toward the less fortunate. This taut thriller brings you page after page of nail-biting tension laced with moral quandaries.
