I've just finished reading Richard Jay Parkers book STOP ME and would HIGHLY recommend it.   

 

'STOP ME is a tightly-written, fast paced debut that keeps you turning the pages.'    SIMON KERNICK (Author of 'Target,' 'Deadline' and 'Severed.')

On Monday February 5th johnnya@apex.com received an email:

 

howdy doody

on vacation

slim, attractive, dreadlocked babe with a fun sticky-out bellybutton, likes rabbit fur

forward this email to ten friends
each of those friends must forward it to ten friends

maybe one of those friends of friends of friends will be one of my friends

if this email ends up in my inbox within a week I won’t slit the bitch’s throat

can you afford not to send this on to ten friends?

Ok, I bit!  But I am confused about the description of the book's plot.  "Vacation Killer Leo Thorpe's life is shattered when his wife Laura suddenly disappears.  ......he becomes convinced that she's the latest victim of the Vacation Killer who has claimed eleven lives already......"  and so forth.  Misprint?  Or plot spoiler?!
