More About This Book

Overview

Stitch by stitch...

A young artist is confronted by all too realistic hallucinations and is thrown into a dark world where the line between reality and delusion is removed.

His visions take a grisly turn when they reveal his closest friend Trey engaged in the bizarre ritualistic torture of mouth sewing. Odder still, Trey's victim is always the same mysterious young woman, a woman who went missing a decade before.

Driven to learn more about Trey and the woman who was his victim, the young artist takes on an odd quest; he begins to follow the clues offered during his hallucinations.

Some clues direct him to visits with Duffy, Trey's drug-dealing mother. Duffy, an eccentric ex-hippy, lives in Wayne Manor, the famed Pasadena estate used in the old Batman television series. Long estranged from her son Trey, she leads a hedonistic lifestyle while caring for an elderly, drug-addicted, exhibitionist-millionaire. Much later, and with Duffy's help, the elderly addict, manages to shed light on the truth about Trey.

Other clues send him on dreamlike romps through the streets of Los Angeles, the beaches of Santa Monica, and others direct him inward, toward his own illustrations, which begin to taunt him during moments of weakness.

Against his will, a deep hatred for his former friend Trey grows, all while the visions become more graphic and cruel, until the young artist is led toward an insatiable desire to harm Trey in retaliation.

Mouth Sewn Shut offers a rare, first person glimpse into the horrific, yet slow onset of psychosis and homelessness, the frivolous nature of the art world and of tightly held family secrets, all through one man's eyes. A world few will encounter or forget.

    A great read!

    This book is a real page turner. I was not sure how it would end but the ending turned out to be great and unexpected. A must read.

    I skim a lot of indies in search of any gems lurking within the inky nebulous and was pleasantly surprised in discovering Slap’s chilling tale. The story revolves around a young man who begins to have visions where he is seemingly transported into the past. Of course, while there, he witnesses his best friend murdering a girl and the mystery begins. Slap does a terrific job unraveling the puzzle, avoiding many cliché plotlines, while whirling into unknown directions. Quite enjoyable, I look forward to reading more of Slap’s work in the future.
