More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
There's not a crime novelist around who writes cleaner prose than Laymon—and few who can jack up the tension the way he does. Yet despite his popularity overseas and a minor resurgence here (Bite, Forecasts, May 24), his readership has of late been limited in the States. This new novel, his first since The Midnight Tour, probably won't change that. Laymon likes to grasp readers by the neck with expert wordsmithery, then haul them into a diabolical situation. Here, foxy substitute teacher Sherry Gates goes searching for her boyfriend, who's late returning from a condom-run to a local L.A. market, and gets snatched by a homicidal, sex-crazed teen, Toby Bones. Many readers will find that too much of what ensues focuses, graphically, on Toby's violations of Sherry (and others), including rape, child molestation, slashings, beatings, shootings, a beheading and fratricidal murder by electric drill. Laymon's outrageousness is part of his appeal, but in his best books it's leavened by a gratifyingly sardonic sense of humor. That wickedness flashes at times here, as does a surprising tenderness: the series of scenes in which a naked Sherry is aided by two horny teen boys combines both qualities in a dashing display of emotionally complex writing. Once again, Laymon offers unexpected, well-rounded characters blown about in a narrative that moves like the wind. But the many scenes of sadistic torture cross the line from terror to lurid cruelty and will curdle the enjoyment of all but the most dedicated Laymon fans. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The master of stomach-churning porno-violence (Quake, 1995, etc.) returns, unredeemed and of no social value whatsoever. Laymon fans must always be telling themselves, I'm sick. I•m very sick. I must be absolutely worthless to be enjoying this, but, as the author•s numerous villainous psychopaths would undoubtedly say, Kill •em all! Let God sort •em out! This time, the Santa Ana winds are blowing fire toward L.A., and tubby, teenaged Toby Bones, who with his brother murdered his wealthy parents, is on the loose. Teacher Sherry Gates and her boyfriend Duane are just about to make love when his condom falls to pieces. He'll be right back, Duane says, heading for the nearby convenience store for some fresh booties. He never comes back. After a while, Sherry goes looking for him and eventually is kidnaped by Toby, a student from a recent class. He beats and tries to rape her, then decides they need a bed. Sherry escapes, gets a stranger named Jim to help her get back to Duane's place. They find Duane in bed, his skull crushed, then Toby offs Jim with two butcher knives into his back, jumps a woman in Duane's hallway and knifes her in the back, then re-abducts Sherry for some real fun. And that's just for tasty openers as Laymon's novel slides in slime toward a big sweet hell of pain and orgasm.

    So far fetched it becomes a bore!

    As a Laymon fan I have to say this has got to win the 'most far fetched' award. Yes, Laymon is typical of far fetched novels but this wins hands down! Sherry is in for one heck of a night. I continued to ask myself 'why' doesn't she ever call the police. I'm sure that would be a Laymon no-no, but geez this book just gets farther and farther away from reality. I found myself saying 'oh, come on-this can't be happening.' When a book just gets to unrealistic for me I have a hard time staying interested. This is one of them. I love Laymon and will continue to hunt down books he wrote. I just hope this is the worst!

    The worst ever.

    I can't believe anybody reviewed this book positively. It's badly written and has amazing gaping holes in the plot. The main female character spends almost the whole book half-naked; all the 'good guys' are Rush Limbaugh fans who keep loaded guns in their houses, even the rich suburban teenagers; and the characters' behavior just doesn't make sense. Just as one example, the main character never calls the police throughout the whole book, and no good reason is ever given for her not doing so; she'd apparently rather run around bleeding and in rags trusting to random male strangers to help her. Add in some totally gratuitous teenage rape scenes, and I wish I could have given this book zero stars instead of 1.
