Book Description

A short story of desire and terror.

A woman finds herself abducted and thrown into the back of a car by a mysterious stranger. She is blindfolded, tied, and gagged. They travel down a swimming dirt road for miles, the heat from the day has cooled into a chilling and frightening evening air.
Fear is something she only begins to realize, but terror is what awaits her.
The truth is a twist, and terror leads to regret...and the shocking conclusion that awaits!

4.0 out of 5 stars On the Edge of My Seat! February 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"a Pound of Flesh" was my literary introduction to Kimberly Raiser.

I was prompted to take the leap into her twisted world because of the stark beauty of the cover, and the other rave reviews.
At ninety-nine cents, I figured that even if I hated the story I couldn't go wrong.

Well you know what?


It's a quick read--Raiser sells this as a shortie--but even beyond its length Raiser wrote "a Pound of FLesh" as a gripping, nail-biting, race to the finish.

And what a finish it is!

I'm not going to say anything, because I don't want to spoil it for you, so I'll just leave it at this:

You'll never see the end coming.
Not in a million years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cleverly done February 27, 2012

Incredible short... You'll never know where this pleasantly written story is headed. Kimberly Raiser had me guessing what's going to happen(on every page), and in the end I was wrong by a long-shot. Her charactor, Tracy, is in for the ride of her life... Who, what, when, where, why and how; this story is fasinating, creepy, sheer torture. What I didn't expect to be in the story would be a spoiler to say in a review... You must read it for yourself and see what the rest of us are talking about. You'll be shocked more than Tracy to find out.

Was drawn into this story on the first page. Liked what little I readed, but it just stops? It is like she just never finished it and they just published the little that she wrote? I do hope that one day she decides to finish it, as I believe that it does have the potential to be a good read!

I loved, loved, loved this story! Be wary when you call forth a demon. You never know if the bargain is true. Just hope it's not. Yep, I'd recommend this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quickies are better sometimes June 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Three words - tasty little morsel. Its bitesized and twisted enough to hold an ADHD's attention 'til the end - and I should know! If you need more, read it again. Sticks to your ribs.

Great book, yes its short but right to the point and kept me wondering how it could possibly end. I loved the ending.. wow did not expect that! I'd love to see similar short stories of each person in the group to see what happens.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nicely written but....
I just didn't care much for this devil-thing story. I do however think fans of this kind of dark story would enjoy it as the writing is descriptive and attention-grabbing for sure.

More About the Author

Growing up surrounded by the influence of science fiction, including Raiser's grandfather Henry Kunicki who grew up with famous physicist David Bohm, it was difficult not to create worlds beyond our own for Raiser.
Raiser's debut novel "The Family Bones" is a culmination of thriller, sci-fi and mystery. On the verge of movie rights, this book is popular among teens as well as adults.
Raiser is working on several novels soon to be released, and a children's line of books as well. Look out for the Pepper Fink series.
With the support of fellow well known authors, including P.S. Gifford and Linda S. Cowden (author of Grimmie) Raiser intends on making writing not just a part time hobby, but a full-time career.
Keep an eye out for this multi-talented award winning author for future hits.
Stranded: Stories from the edge of infinity... is a collection of Raiser's published short stories that have been compared to Twilight Zone, Monty Python, Douglas Adams, and...well...the utmost bizarre, and thought provoking.
