Bad Karma by Douglas Clegg is a blood-curdling thriller that will keep you awake long after you’ve finished reading it. Incisive prose, and measured tension mark this chilling thriller from start to finish. The author takes you uncomfortably deep inside the mind of tormented characters, grabs you by the throat, and never lets up.
Loved this book!
Then there's all those silly 'dream-type' sequences which also contribute to the general annoyance.
A dangerous criminally ill patient escaped Darden State Hospital and is after a family vacationing in Catalina. This patient is a trained killer killing like a machine with no emotion and feelings towards the victims.
Trey has an insane job which he hates, yet he can’t help from being a workaholic. Trey can’t seem to shut his mind off, from the patients at work, thinking about the dangers they impose upon him. So Trey kept his personal life separate from work. Some workers co-mingled with the patients, but Trey kept his personal life private. Since Trey began working at Darden he hasn’t been able to enjoy his family life, not completely, when his mind wonders to the dangerous patients. His job has put pressure on his marriage. Trey is paranoid about the patients escaping Darden and seeking revenge on him and his family, yet he continues to work with the criminally insane.
Agnes’s character is clinically ill. She is restrained and sedated with very little freedom to move around. She is a dangerous patient who has killed thirteen people.
Carly’s character is focused on her husband, kids, and family life. She wants Trey to quit his job so she can have her husband back. Although, she is condescending towards Trey’s paranoia. Her focus is vacation mode. She is ignorant of the imminent danger her family is in. She is patronizing towards her husbands concerns.
Bad Karma is graphically violent with most all the suspense tied to one criminally ill patient. Both the victim and killer are announced from the beginning. The suspense that comes into play is the cat and mouse play when this patient easily locates her victim. When this patient is on the hunt, the killings are graphically violent and grotesque. The criminally ill patient had unusual intentions for killing of which I couldn’t reason with. This was why I rated it 3 ⭐️s.
