If psychology could be used as a weapon

and it had been used

in your neighborhood

on you -

would you be able to tell?

Don't Make Me Cry propels you through Daly's experience as he unravels his memories. Catalyzed by the receipt of a single odd letter, he ventures through the fog of thirty years of mis-remembered events - to ultimately re-live in his mind the actual, brutally overwhelming events themselves. But, unlike many memoirs, this one doesn't become self-indulgent and introspective. Instead, it lays out for the reader just what happened and Daly's reactions to it all, and the reader may or may not infer the connections.

However, as cultural critic Philip Kobylarz warns:

"Some things cannot be unremembered. Such is the case with Tom Daly's memoir of love gone really, really bad..."

"...the words are shocking to mildly put it. What unveils through the course of the narrative is a Manson-esque torture scenario...

"Part psychological thriller as the dust jacket indicates, part murder mystery without a literal murder, Don't Make Me Cry is a tale that proves for an eternity that the weirdness of our society often apexes in the sunny little corners of suburbia..."

About the Author

Tom Daly currently resides in Pleasant Hill, California - in the same county in the San Francisco Bay area where he lived when the events he describes took place. Those events could easily be described as brutal mind control. The author believes such activities have, up to now, remained unheard of and unknown. And writing this book exposing them - trumping those betting their reputations, if not their lives, that it couldn't be done - was important to him.
