Shroudedby Carol Anne Davis
Douglas likes women - quiet women; the kind he deals with at the mortuary where he works. Douglas meets Marjorie, unemployed, gaining weight and losing confidence. She talks and laughs a lot to cover up her shyness, but what Douglas really needs is a lover who'll stay still - perfectly still. Perhaps he can put Marjorie into a state of limbo and use her to feed his growing sexual hunger. Douglas studies his textbooks to find a way ...
No real surprises in this pathological debut (a lot more ruminative and creepy than Do-Not's recent offerings). But Davis creates a marvelously mundane context for her frightened hero's murderous fantasies. Following the progress of his necrophiliac romance is like watching the Titanic and the iceberg glide inexorably toward each other.
