Imagine a beast-man that, when he makes love to you, he withdraws from your body all your life-giving vitamins. And you die. Not exactly a pleasant way to go, is it?.........
Terri is a young doctor. One night while working in the ER she sees a patient who dies in her arms from a massive case of scurvy. To make things even more strange, the victim had been healthy just the night before. This medical mystery leads attracts attention from a number of directions including police, the DA, and special investigators. These investigations trap Terri in the mystery.
Unable to separate herself from the growing mystery as other women die from acute vitamin deficiencies, Terri finds herself in the middle of one of the strangest of stories. She soon finds herself walking the line between truth and keeping herself alive. The answers and secrets that are uncovered point to a true medical horror.
A very interesting story with a pretty original mystery. Terri is a good main character and her reactions to the events around her a quite believable. The final 200 pages really flew by and I could not put the book down. A fine addition to Neiderman's body of work.
Creepy, horror meets sci fi!
Not real impressed with the story.
