And in your dreams, said narcissist, an aide at a Grand Rapids, MI. nursing home, would orchestrate a relentlessly out of control sleaze-athon in which her co-workers - many of them married women with families who leave their husbands and kids - engage in mass out-of-control drunkenness, senseless physical and emotional violence, and rampant sexual promiscuity.
And you know that in your heart of hearts you long for the cellutic ringmaster of this sociopathic circus, Cathy Wood, to decide that it would be fun if she and her main squeeze, aide Gwen Graham, were to begin killing random residents of the home. I mean where is there to go but up?
Well yearn, dream, and long no more! Lowell Cauffiel's FOREVER AND FIVE DAYS is the answer to your prayers. There is no earthly reason for me to further describe the plot, since if the above paragraph doesn't have you salivating uncontrollably, you shouldn't read the book, and if it does, you'll love it.
Lowell Cauffiel is a very good true crime writer who has written my favorite true crime book of all time, MASQUERADE. FOREVER AND FIVE DAYS is very good, though in my estimation not quite as good as MASQUERADE. Though not frequent enough to be a serious problem, the book suffers from less than outstanding editing, leading to misspellings, misuse of words, and improper use of homonyms, for example "in the throws of winter" and "...two bright lights...hung by long chords from the ceiling".
And some of the conversation Cauffiel quotes, as well as some of the thoughts he attributes to the story's players, feels fabricated. But Cauffiel's research into the facts of the case is exhaustive. He has worked hard to produce a good read and he has succeeded. I'd actually give FOREVER AND FIVE DAYS 4 and one-half stars if Amazon's system allowed it. True crime fans should like this one.
