Reviewed by Brad Phelps for Reader Views (12/06)

In this book, the author brings the life of the mafia and a crazed rapist doctor together. There are many characters and each has a different story, but they all come together in the end. A tennis-pro keeps popping up at the wrong time, mistakenly seeing mafia transactions take place.

This novel has two stories in a way. In a small Mississippi town, there is a doctor who drugs and rapes his female patients. His neighbor has a giant crush on him and she finally works up the courage to go to his office and make an appointment, but finds the doctor raping a drugged, pregnant woman. But she doesn't care and has sex with him anyway, even while the naked, passed out woman is still there. The doctor knew he messed up and hit the road.

For the other plot, a tennis-pro, his girlfriend, and his brain-damaged friend have just moved to the same town. The city is almost run by the local casino, and the mafia has deep ties in it. Palmer Morel, the tennis-pro, accidentally encounters a money exchange from the mafia and saves a few union members at the casino from being killed. This makes the mob angrier and they plot to kill him. Palmer's ill friend dies and they decide to spread her cremated ashes in the sea. While all this happening there is a hurricane coming towards the city.

This book is definitely geared towards an adult audience. It has a lot of sexually explicit content and profanity. But it was a very good book. The author was good at tying each person together which keeps you wanting to read more. I recommend this book to anyone that likes mafia-type books; also if you like lots of action, read this book.

What do you do when your own doctor can't be trusted?
