Frank Lauria, The Priestess (Bantam, 1978)

When I started reading Frank Lauria's The Priestess--which I did not realize until I was a few chapters in is actually the fifth book in a series--I wasn't sure I was going to finish it. Blame this on Bantam's marketing team, those same folks who didn't bother mentioning anywhere in the cover copy that it is, in fact, the fifth book in Lauria's Dr. Owen Orient series (as of September 2013, there are seven Dr. Orient books, and Lauria has come out of a long period of hibernation, according to his website, and is now working on an eighth). The silly mismarketing I often get on movie distributors for is not limited to visual media. Looking at this one, you would think it "A chilling new novel of unprecedented terror and supernatural evil." Or that's what the copy on the front cover wants you to believe, if you overlook that "unprecedented terror" doesn't actually make any sense. I guess it does sound better than "Robert Ludlum meets The Believers" (though granted The Believers didn't actually exist for another nine years). That, however, is a far more accurate description, and once you get your head around what the book really is, it's a bit of fun.

Plot: Dr. Orient, with whom you may or may not be familiar from his four previous adventures, is continuing to hone his psychic gifts when he gets a call from an old college associate, Ted Bork, who thinks a company he's consulting for may have use for Orient's talents. Once Orient finds out who Bork is working for, things go south quickly, and Orient follows them, fleeing to Miami and picking up an assumed name in the process. Once there, he lands a job in a mom-and-pop pharmacy, keeping his head down...

Another of Frank Lauria's Dr. Owen Orient stories. Always entertaining. Always worth reading. And through amazon.com I was able to find all of these books I once had and lost and more that I never knew existed - no time wasted in getting them to me.
