From Publishers Weekly
Bernard's wacky but wit-deficient story revolves around Dr. Vera Alexander, a radio talk-show psychologist who specializes in sexual ennui, and her bizarre friendship with the woman who kidnaps her. Vera's captor, Stacy, has sought Vera out for her expertise, objectivity and because her voice "helped Stacy to feel better somehow" in the troubling turn her love life has taken: after Stacy's boyfriend pluges to his death on a mountain hike, he somehow comes back to life. Stranger still, Stacy has taken it upon herself to kill him-twice-with the same results. Complications set in as these Mulder and Scully-meets-Thelma and Louise types repeatedly murder Stacy's boyfriend, trying to uncover "more loopholes in reality." . Bernard (God in the Image of Woman) aspires to cross the gore of Chuck Palahniuk with the irreverence of Christopher Moore, but flat dialogue and a clunky, exposition-heavy resolution make this novel feel like little more than a mordant premise wrought three hundred pages long.

"A stunning, imaginative walk along the wild side, with a deliciously twisted premise that you won't soon forget. Readers tired of the same old-same old would do well to pick up this book."
-- Brandon Massey, author of The Other Brother
"This story will leave you howling, 'Oh no he didn't!'"
-- Tina Brooks McKinney, Author of All That Drama
and Lawd, Mo' Drama
"This ain't your mama's chick-lit. But it's sisterhood, all right -- with an edge -- and D.V. Bernard has cleverly combined the feminine mystique of Diabolique
with the wit of Michael Chabon's Wonder Boys."
-- Christopher Chambers, author of Sympathy for the Devil
and A Prayer for Deliverance
"This is the most humorous book of the decade and D.V. Bernard is destined for greatness!"
-- Zane, NY Times
