The UnnaturalBook - 2003
he first victim, brutally assaulted, literally dies of fright in the ER, and Dr. Julie Charmaine must find out why. Psychiatrist, advocate for battered women and noted sleep researcher, Dr. Charmaine has just two clues to the beautiful young woman's death: she reeks of city sewers, and her last word is the Spanish slang for monkey. Meanwhile, Vicki Zambisi, tormented by twin memories of terror and lost love, begins an odyssey of vengeance. But when her nightmares keep her from destroying her betrayer, she turns to Dr. Charmaine. Eager investors have rewarded Dr. Wesley Kovacs lavishly for his groundbreaking cryonics research. Now, publicly supporting a form of immortality, Dr. Kovacs will let nothing stand between him and the Nobel Prize. Certainly not Vicki Zambisi, who could topple all he's worked to build. Or Julie Charmaine, now Vicki's therapist, who sees her dreams as evidence of a nightmarish plot. For in an experiment gone horribly awry, Kovacs himself holds the key to the 'Sewer Stalker,' the bizarre hybrid creature who lusts insatiably for beautiful women . . . and who now pursues both Julie and her patient. A gripping, edge of your seat thriller by the acclaimed author of Gargoyles.
