Like Death (2005)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Like Death (2005) Author: Tim WaggonerScott Raymond is a traumatized writer, on the outs with his wife, who travels to the town of Ash Creek to begin writing a true-crime novel on the disappearance/abduction of a six-year girl named Miranda. Once there he soon meets a teenaged girl, also named Miranda, who looks an awful lot like that missing girl. As he becomes more involved with her she shows him that there's this 'true reality', that things are oftentimes different than how they appear. In fact, many of the things in everyday life are monstrous but we never quite see them for what they are. One night, when Miranda invites him to a nearby park, he witnesses a woman with a giant vagina being impregnated by a horde of ghoul-like creatures. It turns out that she's a broodmother-and will give birth to human like creatures whose function is to create further chaos. This woman is actually a school teacher in our 'reality'.Scott starts seeing weirder and weirder things and the rift between he and his family gets wider. We find out that the reason his wife left him with their son, David, and got her own apartment is that Scott had hit them-and it's something she doesn't want repeated. Now, his violent tendencies are growing, which probably has to do with this new world view he's been introduced to. Scott's long dead grandmother tries to help him and her help is cut short.When he was a boy, he witnessed the brutal murder of his family-yet he can't remember certain things, including the identity of the serial killer or how he managed to survived. Yet the more he becomes involved with this Shadow world the more he finds out about himself and his forgotten past. In fact, it might be another family member who had done that slaying. Slowly he begins to remember.This is a tough book to read because the images are so horrific and the main character is such a downer, you just want him to get put out of his misery. LIKE DEATH is a well-written, unpleasant excursion into insanity.Available from Leisure books, www.dorchesterpub.com
