“You know I like suspense stories, right?” Sheri said. “Well, in this book, the villain is one sick dude. He lured this young, innocent women into his home, locks her into his dungeon-like basement, and chains her up like she is some kind of animal.”
“That sounds to me a lot like ‘Silence of the Lambs’ and so many other similar books,” Harvey said. “Seems like an overdone plot.”
“Maybe, but in this case, the sicko is not trying to use her skin to sew his own body suit out of it,” Sheri said.
“So what is he planning to do with her?” Harvey asked.
“I don’t know, yet” Sheri said, “but the only ending that will satisfy me would be for her to prevail and for him to meet a truly gruesome end.”
